Ethical Decision-Making Analysis
Resource: Writing Wizard at theCenter for Writing Excellence
Write a 700- to 1,050-word essay examining five ethical decisions you made recently. Do not feel pressured to disclose deeply personal situations; you can use the types of ethical decisions that come up in everyday life. Be sure to provide five different scenarios, one for each of the ethical decisions you've made recently.
Provide the following information for each ethical decision:
A brief description of the cause or situation surrounding the need to make a decision.
A description of how you came to make the decision you did.
Identify which ethical theory best fit your decision-making process at the time.
List the values reflected in the decision you made.
Now that you have studied ethics, would you have used a different ethical theory to make that decision?
Conclude with your essay by answering the following general questions:
Is there one ethical theory that you seem to follow most of the time?
Why do you think this is?
