The editors of Modern Ethics in 77 Arguments organize essays according to the subject matter (e.g. religion, government, violence, race, eating, etc. — see Table of Contents). 

Choose one of these subjects to explore in-depth. Write an essay incorporating three of the essays in that category. 

On your own, formulate a central ethical question related to your reading of the three essays. For example, you might read a selection of essays on “race” in our book and write an essay addressing the question, “Does the U.S. have a moral obligation to provide reparations to descendants of American slaves?”

 Incorporate the authors’ viewpoints into your essay and defend a position of your own. 

The three essays will satisfy your research requirement, but you can conduct additional research if necessary.
