Week 02 Discussion
Essential Questions for Week’s 1-2 Readings and Discussion: “When making ethical decisions, what forces within the human personality should be prioritized? Which should be considered suspect (if any)?”
Read at least eight of the resources provided in the Required Readings for this week. Refer to at least four (using specific quotes) in your original post in the discussion and refer to at least one of them in each of your responses to your peers in that discussion. Use your life experience, logic, or intuition in addition to your reading, to explain how you arrived at your conclusions and critiques. You will note that a number of questions have been asked in the introductions as well. You may use those as additional prompts for your writing as you see fit. Please supply at least one question of your own at the end of your original post to give your instructor and peers a sense for how they might contribute most effectively to your learning goals.
