Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
In an essay of no more than six pages, double-spaced, draw on at least three course readings to answer the following questions:
Step 1: Find an example of a society suffering from injustice. This example can be from history, fiction, current events, or your own imagination.
Step 2: Identify the nature of the injustice, articulate the ethical theory or theories your judgment is based on, and explain how the perpetrators of the injustice rationalize it.
Use utilitarianism (Course reading: Bowles and Gintis – A Cooperative Species) as the ethical theory that your judgment is based on.
Step 3: Propose a program of norm change for this society, setting out a realistic plan for changing the undesirable behavioral norms you identify.
Be sure to cover all the components mentioned above! An Intro, thesis statement, counterargument, and conclusion are needed.
