Is there bias or faulty reasoning? You must support claims of both fact and faulty reasoning.
What are both author’s saying the same topic? Do they agree or is there conflicting information.
Draw conclusions.
This assignment has many benefits. First, it requires a search of indexing and abstracting databases from the online library to find an article that meets the specified criteria (must be related to ethics). It also emphasizes what a scholarly article is; to discern between scholarly and non-scholarly writing; to condense someone else’s lengthy argument into a concise report; to think critically about what has been read by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the research; and, thus, to become participants in the discussions regarding the topic at hand.
FYI: Wikipedia is not an acceptable resource for academic writing. Please use the university library for reference. Articles must be peer-reviewed.

Utilitarians reject the existence of absolute moral rules (other than the principle of utility). They don’t accept things like “do not lie” or “do not steal”.

BMAL770 Ethics Case Study

The Case Study in Ethics assignment is an examination of ethics which begins by through examining one of the 35 Case Studies in Johnson OR an ethical case from the literature or popular press (HBR, Forbes, etc.) as approved by the professor. The paper is intended to be an examination of the ethical dimensions involved in, surrounding, causing, or resulting from the case with the purpose of revealing what can be learned about ethics in leadership and organization from observing a real dilemma. In addition to discussing the dilemma and related factors involved in the specific case, you will be challenged to effectively integrate learning from your first weeks of BMAL 770 to demonstrate the application of complex concepts.
Instructions
Select one of the cases in the Johnson text to explore, or if you choose to use an external case for your work, which is permissible please submit a related scholarly article for approval along with a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) explaining why you would like to use the case.
As you explore the chosen case, considering areas from our ethical leadership studies such as:
• What ethical values, perspectives, or moral perspectives may be involved?
• What is the true ethical dilemma and why?
• What ethical or unethical behaviors and decision models appear in play?
• Were particular ethical practices helpful or harmful in the situation?
• Did power and influence manifestation effect the condition positively or negatively?
• Were there demonstrations or evidence of ethical, servant, or other particular leadership theories? Were they helpful or harmful?
• Did conflicts or negotiation reveal anything about ethical culture or considerations?
• Were any followership challenges apparent?
• Were any ethical group danger signs apparent?
• Can anything be observed that reveals the ethical culture(s) involved?
• What does scriipture and/or worldviews have to say about the case?
That is by no means an exhaustive list but represents some perspectives to consider. You should explore other ethical, reasoning, and worldview concepts that are relevant to the case.
The Case Study in Ethics paper should be in APA format including cover page, abstract, the body, and references page. No less than 4 sources in addition to any course textbooks should be referenced. You may use Nash (optional textbook) or Merida to satisfy one of the 4 required non-textbook references. All referenced material must be properly cited and listed on the references page.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via Turnitin plagiarism tool.
The body, excluding the cover, abstract and references should be 6-8 pages. Keeping the paper within the 6-8 page range is part of the challenge of scholarly writing. Be sure to follow all APA standards including double-space, Times New Roman 12-point or other APA approved font, 1-inch margins, no contractions or unnecessary (non-heading) bolding. Use proper APA headings to improve readability as you see fit.

Abortion

Paper #2: Topics and Guidelines
1. Assignment: Write an essay of 1200-1800 words (~4-6 pages), which engages with the
readings and ideas from unit two.
2. Due Date: Due Sunday, 3/13, by 11:59 pm. By that time, please upload a digital copy to
Blackboard (Coursework → Week 10 → Paper #2 → Scroll down to Attach File, and click Browse
My Computer).
3. Late Penalty: Late papers will be penalized –10 points (out of 100) for the first day, and –2
points for each additional 24 hour period after that. For instance, turn it in by 11:59pm on 10/14,
receive –10 points; turn it in on 10/15, receive –12 points; and so on.
4. Suggested Topics: Please choose one of the following prompts.
Note: You may design your own paper topic based on the material from Unit Two, but you
must first get instructor approval for any topic NOT listed below.
1) Abortion: You will present Thomson’s or Marquis’s argument, and argue
either that abortion is prima facie morally wrong, or that it is not.
(Note: You should restrict your attention to cases where the fetus is healthy, the mother’s life is
not in danger, and the pregnancy is the result of consensual sex.)
2) Animal Rights: You will present either Cohen’s or Norcross’s argument, and argue
either that eating factory-farmed meat is morally wrong, or that it is not.
3) Famine Relief: You will present Singer’s argument, and argue either that we are
morally obligated to donate money to famine relief, or that we are not.
4) Procreation: You will present Young’s argument, and argue either that it is morally
wrong to procreate, or that that it is not.
5. How to Begin: First, decide which of the above topics you want to discuss. Then decide what
stance you will take regarding that issue. Did any particular topic or reading excite you? Do you
feel passionate about any of these issues? Write about that.
Next, you must read The Pink Guide to Taking Philosophy Classes by Professor Helena de
Bres (esp. pgs. 11-17 ; alternatively, check out the the web version here – especially the two tabs on
writing).
(I also strongly recommend Harvard’s excellent Brief Guide to Writing a Philosophy Paper, and
professor Amy Kind’s ‘How to Write a Philosophy Paper’.)
6. Structure: After completing the preliminaries, you will then write a paper following roughly
the same guidelines as the first paper. The only difference for this paper is that you will have the
space to spend twice as much time carefully presenting and critically evaluating the view that you
are writing about.*
*Note: Typically, this will involve discussing two objections in detail, rather than only one, as you did in
the first paper. (Though it’s certainly possible that, in some instances, you may find that a single objection
is SO ripe for exploration that you’d like to take a very deep dive into just this one criticism, rather than try
to cover two in less detail.)
7. Grading Rubric: Primarily, I will be looking for two things when I assign grades:
(1) Clarity: Do you explain yourself in a way that is clear, concise, persuasive, and
well-organized? Imagine that you are writing for someone who has never taken
a philosophy course. Your writing should be clear enough so that they would
(a) easily understand you,
(b) would learn something new about a philosophical problem and the ideas
of a historical figure, and (c) maybe even be persuaded by you.
(2) Critical Reasoning: Does your treatment of the view demonstrate your ability
to think critically? It should be apparent that you have thought about the view
and the objections carefully, that you understand their implications, and that
you have put some thought into your response.
8. Academic Dishonesty: As per the syllabus, any student caught cheating or plagiarizing will
automatically receive an F.
Plagiarism is defined as any case of presenting someone else’s work as your own (e.g., by copying
an internet source, another student’s work or ideas, or any other source at all without citation). So,
be sure to cite any and all ideas that are not your own.

Ethical Dilemma

You are the manager of a local toy store. The hottest Christmas toy of the year is the new “Peter Panda” stuffed animal. The toy is in great demand and almost impossible to find. You have received your one and only shipment of 12, and they are all promised to people who previously stopped in to place a deposit and reserve one. A woman comes by the store and pleads with you, saying that her six-year-old daughter is in the hospital very ill, and that “Peter Panda” is the one toy she has her heart set on. Would you sell her one, knowing that you will have to break your promise and refund the deposit to one of the other customers? (There is no way you will be able to get an extra toy in time.)
Your decision?
a. Would sell
b. Would not sell
c. Unsure
Rationale? _________________________________
