Twain, M. (1994). Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Dover Thrift Editions.). New York: Dover Publications. Available at http://contentserver.adobe.com/store/books/HuckFinn.pdf

Read Chapter 8 in Huckleberry Finn. You may have read this book years ago, but this time read it from the philosopher’s perspective you have matured within yourself in this class. Try to pick up on the ethical dilemma Twain writes into the story for Huck while he struggles with what is “right” to society and what is “right” to himself.  In the pdf provided for class, this is most clear on page 45 (it may be on a different page if you are using another format of the book). There are a couple passages in this book worth discussion, be-prepared in the Discussion Forum this week to discuss what your perspective allows you to you see.

Now that you are done with Chapter 8 from Mark Twain, check out the Khan Academy Video about The Divine Command Theory.   

Watch this video from Khan Academy:Darwall, S.  Ethics” God and Morality, Part 1.  Khan Academy.  Available at https://www.khanacademy.org/partner-content/wi-phi/wiphi-value-theory/wiphi-ethics/v/god-morality-part-1

Now read Chapter 12 of Huckleberry Finn, available at http://contentserver.adobe.com/store/books/HuckFinn.pdf

Read about Kantian Ethics: http://www.csus.edu/indiv/g/gaskilld/ethics/kantian%20ethics.htm

Read about Moral Absolutism at http://www.philosophybasics.com/branch_moral_absolutism.html and note the philosophers you have heard about who discuss it (Plato, Aristotle, Kant, to name a few). Do not skip over the criticism part of this reading.

Part 2

Present a 3-page research paper on Ethics and Morality in the world around you. Remember, your personal philosophy is right for you, you do not have to agree with these scholars or anyone in the class. Please respect yourself enough to state your case, and others enough to allow them to state theirs.

You must pick one of these three topics: 

1.  If you are a religious person, write about an ethical conflict you have with your own religion’s tenants which you feel morally obligated to not follow.This can be as brave as talking about gender and sexuality issues or as light as if you always follow the dietary practices your religion requires, (alcohol, smoking, kosher diet, or halal food for example). You must use at least two examples in your writing.Use the correct terms you learned this unit.

2.  Write about the immigration in Europe. Should anyone be allowed into a sovereign country?Pick a side and discuss the ethical and moral dilemma the arriving and receiving societies face. You must use at least two examples in your writing.Use the correct terms you learned this unit.

3. Write about enforcing an adult belief structure onto children who haven’t chosen it yet (FGM, for example). What are the moral and ethical challenges of this?

You must give at least two examples.
