Consequential, Nonconsequential, and Virtue Theory
In this week’s Discussion, you will explore the major groups of ethical theories we call consequentialist (teleological), nonconsequentialist (deontological), and virtue theories. There are multiple theories in each category that you will be able to address in this week’s Discussion. These theories will serve as the foundation for all future Discussions and Assignments for the course. Having an opportunity to discuss these with your instructor and peers will help you understand how to use them to address ethical issues and questions.
To what extent do you believe that members of your family or your friends use consequential, nonconsequential, and virtue theory? Pick one example from each approach and describe how these approaches work or don’t work for them. Compare the strengths and weaknesses of your three chosen theories.
