TITLE – type the name of the person or article title and the philosophy you are applying.

Example – President Bush – Kant

If you use an article be sure your article was published within the last year.

 

  • SUMMARIZE – In paragraph one give a summary of the article/person/character, in case I am not familiar with them.
  • ETHICAL ISSUE – State the ethical issue that person faced – Use proper format – Make it bold print and a SHOULD QUESTION.
  • APPLICATION – Using the steps outlined in your text, apply each step of Kantian Ethics to the situation. Fully show your application.  
  •     CONCLUSION (last step in the application) – Choose the best option. If that person were a true Kantian  – what would that person have done. What would the Kantian theory say is the morally right or best thing to do?
