Using one case study from ‘Michael Sandel’s Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?’ , compare the strengths and weaknesses of utilitarianism and deontology.
[It is sufficient to give the title and page number of the case study: you do not need to explain the scenarios in detail.]
Your essay must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the theories selected. You do this by explaining, analysing and evaluating how they work and the arguments and evidence used to support and challenge them. You should use case studies (which may include thought experiments) to explore the strengths and weaknesses of the theories. In evaluating the theories you should try to develop a position as to what works and does not work both in the internal consistency of the theories and in the work of applying them to case studies.
