Your first assignment: definitions
Due: Thursday through Saturday
Your first assignment is to explore some possible definitions of what
is meant by the terms "ethics" and "morality."
should look around for a definition (or two) of "ethics" and
"morality" that seem to you to be good ones. I suppose you could go to
dictionaries if you like, but
also find other sources for definitions that are a little more reflective
than just dictionaries. A library or bookstore may be a
good place to start, and so would the web. I suppose asking people wouldn't
a bad idea either. We may need all the help we can get.
the definition(s) you've found into the Classroom Discussion folder (click
on the blue globe icon and from there open a new message, write your message,
then post it). You’ll also need to provide citations describing where you found
the definitions, of course.
us what you like and dislike about the definition(s) youve found.
4. Respond to any of the postings from
other people you find interesting.
This conversation needs to be completed by Saturday evening, so that means
you will need to start posting your first definitions on Thursday so
that others will have time to think about what you've written and respond.
It will be interesting to see
how successful well be in finding
adequate definitions for the terms "ethics" and "morality."
