Ethics Essay
Week one reading helps understand and compare the similarities and differences between virtue theory, utilitarianism, and deontological ethics.

Then concluding in a personal experience to explain the relationship between ...view middle of the document...

The theory bases its duties on the nature of human reason or on the nature of human action. It asserts the existence of moral facts and so is a moral realist theory“(Boylan). So deontological is being more ethical because it is based on principles and if it was morality then it would not be based on principles. “Virtue ethics is also called agent-based ethics. Its position is that we become good when we cultivate excellence (virtue) by pursuing the moderate course between excess and defect. Since the origin of the virtues is in question, some practitioners of virtue ethics are moral realists while others are not” (Boylan). Like the definition said, it can be either because the origin of the virtues is in question; some practitioners of virtue ethics are moral realists while others are not.
Seeing the difference in the three theories and how each addresses ethics and morality, there is always personal experiences. As a personal experience with utilitarianism and growing up with my parents teaching me right from wrong. Growing up in a small town we did not have virtues to follow as much as we did values and morals. Values and morals are like utilitarianism because it is a choice to do the right thing and not a must, but with two superior parents teaching good values and morals, it does rub off onto the children so they can teach their kids one day.
