Ethics: Third Test
Thursday, April 27
The test, which is worth 150 points again, will be similar in format to the first two: a combination of short-answer (probably including multiple-choice) and longer-answer/essay questions.
Because there is relatively little reading or lecture material in this last four-week segment, expect fewer short-answer questions and more essay questions. I almost certainly will ask you to make one or more ethical decisions by drawing on class materials.
It will not be cumulative in the sense that it will not cover readings or lectures from before the first two tests. But you will need to be familiar with the ideas of the key philosophers we have discussed and with the decision-making tools we have used.
You should know the Potter Box and Sissela Bok's decision-making steps by heart. (They're worth internalizing before you leave here.) You should be comfortable with the other tools we've used, such as Lambeth's or Elliott's questions, but you don't have to memorize them.
fair game for the test:
