Applying an Ethical Theory Overview Just War/Military Ethics: Disobeying unjust or illegal orders given by one’s superiors Use deontological ethical theory to apply to the above ethical question. Explain the core principles of that theory. Demonstrate how the principles of the theory support a certain position on that question. Articulate a relevant objection to that position. Instructions Write a five-paragraph essay that conforms to the requirements below. The paper must be at least 1,000 words in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. The paragraphs of your essay should conform to the following guidelines: The introduction the introduction should clearly state the ethical question under consideration, and define the essential issues. Your introduction should include a brief remark about the kind of theory you will be using to approach this question. The last sentence of the introduction should briefly summarize the or position on the issue you think is best supported by this theory and succinctly state what the objection will be. Bear in mind that your essay will not be concerned with your own position on this issue, but what someone reasoning along the lines of the chosen theory would conclude. Body Paragraphs Each paragraph in the body should start with a topic sentence that clearly identifies the main idea of the paragraph. Theory explanation: Explain the core principles or features of the deontological theory and the general account of moral reasoning it provides.You must quote from http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/assets/pdfs/kant1785.pdf Application: Demonstrate how the principles or features of the deontological theory and apply to the question under consideration and identify the specific conclusion that results from applying the reasoning characteristic of that kind of approach.Your application should clearly show how the conclusion follows from the main principles and features of the theory as addressed in the previous paragraph. Objection: Raise a relevant objection to the argument expressed in your application. An objection articulates a plausible reason why someone might find the argument problematic. This can be a false or unsupported claim or assumption, fallacious reasoning, a deep concern about what the conclusion involves, a demonstration of how the argument supports other conclusions that are unacceptable, etc. You should aim to explain this objection as objectively as possible, (i.e., in a way that would be acceptable to someone who disagrees with the argument from the previous paragraph).Note that this does not necessarily mean that the objection succeeds, or that the conclusion the theory supports is wrong. It may be an obstacle that any adequate defense of the conclusion would have to overcome, and it may be the case that the theory has the resources to overcome that obstacle. Your task here is simply to raise the objection or present the “obstacle.” Conclusion The conclusion should very briefly summarize the main points of your essay.

The other source should pertain to the particular issue you are writing about and should be drawn from the required or recommended readings in the course, or be a scholarly source found.
