For this part of the final project, you will prepare a “prospectus” of your final essay by answering the following essay questions.

The topic choice and overview is uploaded in the document here!
Please refer to it when creating your new essay!
At the end of Module Three, you identified your selected topic and associated philosophers and resources for your Final Project paper. For this part of the Final Project, you will prepare a “prospectus” of your final essay by answering the following essay questions. This prospectus is due at the end of Module Five.
The feedback you receive from your instructor on this prospectus will inform your Final Project essay.
Using the topic you selected for your Final Project essay, respond to all five of the following questions below:
Briefly explain the problem you have chosen.
How does it arise, and what issues does it present?
What three resources have you chosen to use as you develop your final essay?
Provide full bibliographic information AND a brief statement (three sentences maximum) of the main point of each of them. Remember that these should be philosophers with relevant opinions on this topic.
What is your position on your chosen topic? State your position in one sentence and provide five sentences maximum on why you take the position you take (your reasoning).
What is an objection to your own position?
State the objection and explain its significance.
Expand on the objection you provided in question #4 in three to four sentences.
This is where you go beyond your process for selecting that objection and respond to it in terms of your position. Ensure that your response here identifies the objection, illustrates it using an example or fact from question #2, and responds to it with not only your criteria for why your position is a logical response to this objection but uses one of the pieces of evidence or facts from #2.

Assignment reminders:

You will create this assignment following the Assignment Detail instructions below.
Review the tutorial How to Submit an Individual Project.
Assignment Details
Overview:
Use the following 2 starting points to develop your essay on morality and ethics:
The article by Jay Feldman: Sunday Dialogue: How Corporations Behave
Alfred North Whitehead’s controversial statement, “What is morality in any given time and place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like and immorality is what they dislike” (as cited in BrainyQuote, 2021).
Think about those two perspectives, and then select 1 of the focal questions in Part 1 of the assignment. Your response to the selected focal question will guide you to formulate a thesis statement.
Discuss the article and Whitehead’s statement in the introduction, body, and conclusion of the essay.
Locate and utilize at least 2 credible sources to support the arguments presented in your paper. Make sure you cite them appropriately within your paper, and list them in APA format on your Reference page.
Ensure that your paper is 4–5 pages in length, not counting the Title page and Reference page. In accordance with APA formatting requirements, your paper should include a Title and Reference page, should be double-spaced, and should include a running head and page numbers.
Part 1: Formulating the Philosophical Thesis Statement
Select only 1 of the following focal questions to answer to help formulate your thesis statement:
Businesses can have ethical standards, but businesses are not moral agents. Do you agree or disagree?
Is it true that the “bottom line” of a business is profit and profit alone?
In business, are there other, less tangible goals that are intrinsic to—and just as important as—making money?
In a business environment, why should people be moral as individuals?
Why should a corporation or organization be moral?
Could you apply the first formulation of Kant’s categorical imperative to a business environment?
Part 2: Developing the Essay
Identify your thesis statement (argument claim) within the introduction of your paper.
Conduct research using library resources. Please use the article presented above (Sunday Dialogue: How Corporations Behave) as well as 2 additional sources.
Outline your essay, considering deontological ethics, teleological ethics, moral objectivism, and ethical relativism in your argument.
Provide at least 3 valid reasons to support your argument. Remember to think critically here—there likely are reasons that may not be evident at first.
Also, be sure to include the following in your essay:
Use of explanations of philosophical concepts—such as utilitarianism, categorical imperatives, process philosophy, moral relativism, moral absolutism, ethical relativism, moral objectivism, deontological ethics, or teleological ethics—to structure your essay and provide evidence to support your claims.
Remember, you can use these concepts to argue for or against a particular statement (e.g., from a deontological perspective, something might be “right,” whereas that same thing may be “wrong” from a utilitarian perspective).
Your argument and reasons (claims) should be defended by philosophical concepts supported by evidence, which is based on your research.
Part 3: Conclusion
Consider morality and ethics from the perspective of Alfred North Whitehead’s process philosophy and Immanuel Kant’s universal categorical imperative. After conducting your research and writing your essay, could you conclude that businesses can have ethical standards, despite the fact that businesses are not moral agents? Explain why or why not. Sum up your argument based on the evidence presented in the paper.
Part 4: Review Checklist Before Submitting Essay
Your essay should be checked for proper use of grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
You may find that you change your mind on the issue as you are writing your paper. That is fine, but be sure to present your ultimate decision at the beginning of the paper, and stick to it consistently throughout. This may require that you go back and change paragraphs to support your changed thesis statement.
Your argument should be clear, concise, and supported with logically valid claims and evidence followed by APA in-text citations.
A Reference page documenting your sources should be included. Please use the article presented above (Sunday Dialogue: How Corporations Behave) as well as 2 additional sources.
Your paper must be 4–5 pages in length, not counting the Title page and Reference page. In accordance with APA formatting requirements, your paper should include a Title and Reference page, should be double-spaced, and should include a running head and page numbers.

But how much disagreement could we tolerate?

Consider the following: Moral relativism claims that there is no single objective morality but only many moralities, each relative to a particular framework — one’s culture, for instance. Invariably some moralities will come into conflict. If there are moral disagreements, could relativism solve them? Should we even try to solve them? If we could solve moral disagreements between cultures, wouldn’t that require an appeal to a principle that is not relative (i.e., an objective moral principle)? Or do we simply agree to disagree? But how much disagreement could we tolerate? Use an example to illustrate your point.
