ACC 260 Week 4 CheckPoint Philosophical Approaches to Ethical Decision Making -
Assignment: Critiquing Philosophical Approaches to Ethical Decision Making
Although there are many different methods by which to determine an appropriate ethical course of action in a situation, not every method is effective in all situations. Not all ethical frameworks are equally useful. Beyond knowing how to use a particular ethical framework, the ability to evaluate a framework for appropriateness is also beneficial.
• Resource: Appendix B
• Review each of the responses you wrote in Appendix B.

o If so, are these the best reasons for making this choice? Explain.
o If not, why? What is a better choice?
o What reasons are there for believing this alternative is more ethical?
