Modern Morality

PDF version of Article

Mr. Jack Bowen
Spring 2008

The Project:
The assignment was to choose a philosophical topic, issue, or theory covered during the year that you either (a.) disagreed with and want to argue against, or (b.) found personally relevant and would like to explore in a deeper way. In doing so, cite at least two philosophers as sources and provide your own position as well.

From her nomination:
Isabel's paper was intellectually honest and very original. She shed light on a challenging and abstract issue in a very clear way, all the while pushing the discussion of how we determine moral truths one step further. I enjoyed reading it not only as a teacher, but as I would read any philosophical paper.
