If I Were To Teach Ethics I Would Imagine That You Are Asked To Teach A Class On

If I were to teach ethics, I would…

Imagine that you are asked to teach a class on ethics. How would you organize it, and what would you emphasize? I want to see you thinking about some of the issues we have discussed this semester, such as:

  1. Would you use stories to teach ethics? Why or why not? Talk specifically about the pros and cons of using stories for teaching ethics, and give specific examples.
  2. Would you teach primarily about moral rules, social benefits, character, or care? Which of these seems most important to you, and why?
  3. What other ideas or themes would you emphasize? Why are these important?
