Topic: Compare and contrast metaethical theories

Thread: Now that you have learned about competing ethical theories,  write a 500-600 word thread that compares and contrasts a Christian  ethical theory with a competing ethical theory. Since we have already  looked at ethical relativism in DB 1, you should choose from any theory  in the Moral Reasoning textbook except ethical relativism. That means  you can choose from Virtue Ethics, Natural Law, Ethical Egoism,  Utilitarianism, Duty Ethics, Social Contract Theory, and Moral Realism  (or any combination of these) in contrast to a Christian ethical theory  such as Divine Command, Divine Nature, or Christian Revelational Ethics  (or a combination of these).

  1. How does each system define “the good?” How does each claim to know “the good?”
  2. What, if anything, do these systems have in common? What, if anything, are their key differences?
  3. Which theory do you think is the stronger ethical theory? Defend  your answer. This final question should take up the majority of your  thread.

Be sure to carefully define your terms. You are encouraged to  support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and  expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than  yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and  will not count towards the total word count.

You will be penalized for falling short or exceeding the word count.  This is a university-level writing assignment and therefore it must be  carefully proofread, free of grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors.  Do not use slang, emoticons, or abbreviations (as if you are texting or  sending an email to a friend).
