Defining Ethics 

This week, the reading and lesson trace a number of ethical theories that we will encounter and explore this session. These include the following.

  • Ethical Intuitionism
  • Virtue Ethics
  • Ethical Non-Cognitivism
  • Ethical Contractarianism

There are many ethical theories out there and this opening week’s discussion will explore these and help lay the foundation for your own ethical understanding and philosophies during the course. Whether you believe in the Utilitarian perspective that a person’s actions should be judged on the amount of pleasure or pain they cause, or the Deontology approach that requires us to follow laws and do our duty, we all have a certain way to thinking based on our ethical code.

Team Discussion: Exploring Topics in Environmental Technologies 

This week you will begin to engage with your team to brainstorm ideas for the Course Project. First, it is important for you to get to know each other and collectively explore your interests.

This is a graded assignment for Week One. This is where you start to build your Team Chemistry by getting to know each other better and contributing to the development of the Team Project Charter. As noted above here are the expectations:

For your initial post, explain what you think the role of environmental ethics is in society. As part of your response, highlight one key technology that you think illustrates your ideas.

Then for your subsequent posts you “discuss” things with your Team mates so you help to define what the team will work on in the course project assignments.

The expectation for full points is that, at a minimum, you would post your own response to what the role of environmental ethics is in society is, and also respond to at least two of your classmates postings throughout this week…
