HU245 Unit 6 Discussion Board

Discussion Overview

In the Unit 6 Discussion, you will explore issues that relate to the death penalty and war. Both of these topics are highly controversial.

You and your peers will explore some of these reasons and explore these difficult topics in light of ethical theory and reasoning.

Choose ONE of the following to answer on this Discussion Board:

A: What are some of the arguments used for and against capital punishment? (You may want to complete some additional research to add to your knowledge). In your response, apply ethical theory to your position.


B: When is it ethical for a nation to go to war? Provide an example from history of what you believe represents a just war. Explain your answers using ethical theory and/or reasoning.
