Discuss why we study ethics and why we should be concerned about doing the right thing. If each of us has a unique set of influences and values that contribute to our personal value system, how can that be applied to a community as a whole?
Consider how you have resolved ethical dilemmas in the past. What would you do differently now?
Respond to the following scenario. It’s a rainy day, and one evening you and your friends decide to go shopping at the local mall. Upon entering, you place your name-brand umbrella in a basket near the door. When you were ready to leave, your umbrella was gone. There were several others in the basket, and you decided to take another name-brand umbrella. Should you have taken it, or taken a lesser-quality model, or just gotten wet on the way back to your car?
