[Essay Help]: HUM206 Thinking Ethically

HUM206 Thinking Ethically.


The purpose of this assignment is to recognise that ethical issues are an important element of all daily life. Your research will enable you to engage with real world issues of an ethical nature, identify them and think critically about them through an application of the core vocabulary of the course.

You will refine your ability to recognise the objective and subjective packaging and expression of ideas in what you read and the way that you write. This supports a better understanding of critical thinking.

This assignment has four steps:

Step One:

Find a website or an electronic document from the databases that links to ethics.

Step Two:

Using objective, non-emotional, non-judgemental language, describe your source and summarise the facts relating to the issue.

Step Three:

Vocabulary for use in step three: ethics, morals, values, beliefs, emotions, facts, law, agency, ethical (or moral agent), ethical (or moral) subject, ethical (or moral) standing, secular, sacred, privilege, equity, equality.

Step Four:


• the terms ethics (or ethical) and moral (or morals or morality) to demonstrate you understand the difference this course attributes to them in order to maintain clarity.

• at least 8 more words from the specialised vocabulary list

• an explanation of why you did not use others the ones remaining

• check spelling, grammar, punctuation, appropriate and clear expression

Your goal is to comment on the issue the website engages using the vocabulary of the course. The following questions may be of help, but you are free to create your own providing they also draw on the vocabulary:

• What beliefs are at work? Do they conflict? Do you share or reject them? Are they new to you?

• What values are supported by the beliefs? Are those values sacred, secular or both? What emotions accompany the values?

• How, if at all, would ‘reason’, ’emotion’ or the ‘law’ intervene in the debate?

• Is anyone in the situation denied agency?

• Is there a moral/ethical agent and/or subject?

• Why is this issue relevant to ethics? Is it also a moral issue?

• How might critical thinking change the way people engage with this issue? I have included some examples of this assignment from previous years.
