12 SOR- Value and Ethics
There are currently three different models of the Christian moral life: the deontological (concerned with laws and obligations); the teleological (concerned with ends); and the relational (concerned with relationships with God, neighbour, world and self). There are also many secular moral frameworks that do not rely on religious imperatives for reasoning or justification of action or world view. The dilemma facing people today is finding a dynamic moral balance from such diverse approaches. 12 SOR- Value and Ethics
Considering both teleological and deontological approaches, present individually a multi-modal examination of a biomedical ethical issue, using two recognised ethical frameworks (one from each approach). From these frameworks, you are to establish whether or not a Christian can find a moral balance in respect to your chosen bio-medical issue and the adherent’s faith life.
To complete this task, you must
- Submit a full assignment: criteria sheet, script, research notes and annotated bibliography as one document.
