In the second half of this course, you have been introduced to Robert Nozick’s libertarianism, John Rawls’ welfare liberalism, and Aristotle’s virtue ethics. For your final exam, you are to write an essay of no fewer than 500 words and no more than 900 words, in which you demonstrate some understanding of the principles of one of those theories.
Read carefully Andrew Fitz-Gibbon’s “Peace” (pages 548-53 in MacKinnon), which briefly surveys the ways in which non-violence and pacifism have been viewed and practiced throughout history. Write an essay in which you examine the ways in which pacifism and/or non-violence (in the various forms Fitz-Gibbon describes) can be viewed as an Aristotelian virtue. In what ways, and in which forms, does this approach to violence fit in with Aristotle’s understanding of the mean? In what ways does it diverge from Aristotle’s approach?
Bear in mind that your task is to show that you understand the approach the philosopher you are writing about takes to the topic he addresses, not whether you agree or disagree with him. This represents a significant departure from the weekly discussion assignments, in which you were largely asked to show some engagement with the material by telling what you thought about a particular topic. The exam asks you to show that you understand the essential principles of these theories and can apply them to a specific argument.

In aphorism# 125 of the Gay Science, The Madmen tells the people who did not believe in God that “we have killed God – you and I. All of us are his murderers.” But at end of the aphorism, he also claims that the death of God has “not yet reached the ears of men … and yet they have done it themselves.” How is it possible to kill God and not know that he is dead?

I am a Christian and don’t ever want to hurt anyone or lie
For your midterm exam, you will combine your summaries of the core ethical principles and ideas to create a personal ethical portfolio. You will also write a personal ethical statement. You will use these materials to analyze your media ethics cases for the rest of the semester and for the final exam.
Given the specific objectives of this course, your personal ethical statement must draw from
philosophical theories and models,
religious ideas, and
the professional code of conduct for your desired profession.
In order to receive credit for the personal ethical statement, you need to use and reference the material we have covered in class so far. Make sure you cite your sources.
You will not be graded on the specific content of the statement (i.e., if I agree with your ethics or not), but on its comprehensiveness and use of philosophical, religious, and professional ideas. If you have any concerns about these requirements, please speak with your instructor. The personal statement length should be 2-3 pages, though the portfolio will be longer since it includes all the summaries you did to the date of the midterm.
Format:
Title page with student name, class/section, date

Sources or works cited
Here are several examples of Personal Ethical Statements. In some of them, I have deleted the readings summaries. Also, just as a note, in earlier classes sometimes the summaries were called “abstracts” and had a slightly different format. If you have any questions, please contact the instructor or TA.

Thinking ethically is required in order to make an ethical decision. Ethics is not just about imagining a better situation or a better version of yourself, rather it is about acting and finding sustainable ways to make decisions. For this discussion, review (https://www.scu.edu/ethics/ethics-resources/a-framework-for-ethical-decision-making/) Read through the document, paying close attention to the framework offered, while also considering the section on “What is NOT ethics.” Then read through the ethical standards. While this is not an exhausted list of ethics nor is there a singular business definition of ethics, this is a starting point for applying ethics in the workplace.
Reflect on the framework and the short guide offered. Does it make sense? Are the items listed as standards accurate? How about the areas that are NOT ethics, do they make sense? Can you think of a time when you have experienced a situation that one of these content areas was considered ethics? How about a work situation that clearly articulated an ethical standard?
