Study Guide for Final Exam

Here is the Final Examination Schedule for Professor Nobis's Intro To Ethics courses:

11:00 AM's MWF course final is: Monday, December 7th 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

12:00 PM MWF course final is: Wednesday, December 9th 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

1:00 PM MWF course final is: Monday, December 7th 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

While it's ideal if you come to the final at your official class time, you can come to the final at any class time that you'd prefer. I hope this will work out and we will be able to find space at all times!

Again the format will include multiple choice, short answer and many "What premise would you add to make this argument logically valid?" questions.

The topics include everything since the midterm, which amounts to these topics, all of which have been discussed in class and readings asssigned:

Ethical Theory:

- the divine command theory of ethics / ethics and religion

- ethical egoism

Moral problems:

- abortion (Rachels, Warren, Marquis, Thompson)

- euthanasia (Rachels)

- world poverty (Singer, Engel, Rachels)

- animals (Rachels, Singer, Simmons)
