Decide on a moral theory we studied in this class that you would feel comfortable adopting as your personal ethical position. Thoroughly explain the theory you chose and why you chose it. Reference an outside source to support your position. Finally, give an example of a moral dilemma from your personal or professional life and how the theory you chose would help you solve it.
Important Note: If you choose a heavily-criticized theory, such as the Divine Command Theory, Subjective Relativism, or Cultural Relativism, you need to analyze and explain in a philosophical fashion why you chose this theory despite the powerful objections to them. Personal testimonials absent philosophical analysis are not acceptable in this paper.

Indicate in your thesis the ethical theory you chose.

Explain your decision based on what you learned about evaluating moral theories (i.e. coherence, strength of its arguments, lack of fallacies, if it contradicts our moral intuitions or moral principles, and if it useful).
