You should devote at least 1.6 to 2 pages to each of these theories.C) In your conclusion you may develop your own moral argument regarding your case. But, you must clearly develop your position, including the moral principle or principles you base your moral argument upon. For this purpose the other normative theories Rachels covered in his book are fair game — Social Contract Approach, Ethics of Care, and Virtue theoretic approaches. NOTE: Non-normative theories including Subjectivism, Moral Relativism, and Egoism cannot be applied, since they are not theories about specific moral beliefs. 01/05/202030socialscience
