Choose ONE question to answer in 700-1000 words.

A) What is the best result of a social contract, in terms of ethics?

B) In Care Ethics, relationships based on authentic care are the location of good. Ethics attempts to answer questions about what to do, what good is and/or who matters. Is the Ethic of Care sufficient as an answer to these questions?

C) Do all interactions of human agents include an exchange or imposition of power?

D) How do you recognize when an exchange of power between agents is unethical? What are the results or characteristics which define unethical exchanges? You may use very specific examples, but be sure to explain why they are examples of a definition (your thesis will be what ties your examples together).

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
