I need help bad!!! I am in my final week in my Philosophy of Human Conduct class. I don't want anyone to write the whole thing (but willing if someone wants to email me privately @ firstname.lastname@example.org) :-) anyways, I just need help with a topic for my final paper. The obvious topics that I have come up with are divorce and abortion, which neither interest me to write about. Please leave me possible topics in the comment section and I will be giving some really good blog candy to the winner. I will be choosing a winner by tomorrow (Sunday 08/17) at midnight. Here are the guidelines for the paper that might help...
Much of the work we will do on moral questions and moral theory in this course may seem very abstract. This is necessary when you are looking for the broadest understanding possible, but it also allows a certain casualness to work its way into the practice. "The Nazis were bad and it's good to be good to others" seems true, but all of this should lead us to put our money where our mouths are at some point. Thus, theory and explanation are the first steps we take as moral thinkers, and then we need to put our studies into practice.
For your final paper, write about a real contemporary problem where you see the status quo as lined up against something that is just or in favor of something that is unjust. Make a case for what you think would be just and argue for measures that should be taken to counteract that injustice. The stronger your measures, the greater your need to justify such measures. You must write in a careful, theoretical way. If you can make this assignment about your own experience or community, then all the better but you must support your arguments. You must use at least 8-10 outside sources in the construction of your argument.
I promise, your name and information will not be in the paper at all. I just need help thinking of a topic. My blog candy will be fabulous. I am not sure what yet, but fabulous. My last blog candy was a gift certificate to stamping bella, just so you know I don't give out poop. I may just ask the winner a couple of questions and decide a couple of choices and let you pick.
I just need HELP!!!
