Students shall personally write and upload “A Question of Scruples” (“Scruples”) question by the deadline noted at the end of the syllabus.  The “Scruples” question should present a short moral or ethical dilemma.  Following the question (the “Scruples card”), the student should then describe why the question is in fact a moral or ethical dilemma and then analyze and resolve the situation using at least one of the standard ethical schools discussed in the course:  (1) Aristotle’s Nicomachean ethics (virtue ethics); (2) Bentham and Mill’s Utilitarianism; (3) Kant’s deontological Ethical Formalism or the Natural Law of Cicero, Aquinas and Rousseau; or (4) another ethical school of thought clearly identified and as described in the texts.  Note that using an existing question is notacceptable; the question must be original and written by the student.
