Application Act Utilitarian – After reading Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 of your text (attached):


  • Read Case 28 – Entitled “The Box” (attached)
  • Submit to the drop box in MLA format – Place your name, the professor’s name, the course name and the date in the upper left-hand corner. Include a Work Cited page, (see drop box rules).
  • Paragraph 1 – Discuss Act Utilitarianism in your own words. Include a discussion of the main concepts. How does it work and how is it applied?
  • Chart – Apply the steps of Act Utilitarianism to resolve the main moral issue. Use a chart as seen in chapter 5 and as seen in the sample format. Since you are using a chart there is no set word count but be detailed. You may use the chart you created in your Analysis section and add the appropriate numbers, scale, and net utility.
    • Read feedback – If feedback from previous assignments informed you of errors in stating your ethical issue, listing options or stakeholders please correct those errors before completing assignment.
  • Paragraph 2 – Conclusion. What is the result of the chart? How did you come to these conclusions for each stakeholder and option? And is this a good way to address the overarching moral issue?
