Ethical Systems Table 1 PHL/323 Version 4  University of Phoenix Material  Ethical Systems Table Directions:  1. Fill in brief definitions of each primary ethical theory.  2. Identify alternate names or variations of each ethical system based on your reading of the text and supplemental materials. Match the real­world examples listed below with the corresponding systems. The first one has been completed for you in the table.  a. I believe people should be able to eat sand if they like the taste of it. b. I believe that if sand is going to be eaten, it should be available for everyone to eat.  c. I believe people should be able to eat sand because it is the right thing to do. d. I believe people should be able to eat sand because it is good for one’s health. e. I believe people should be able to eat sand if they decide they want to, regardless of  whether it is someone else’s sand. f.

Develop your own workplace example that fits with each system. Present each workplace scenario in a substantial paragraph of approximately 40 words. Although the table field  will expand to accommodate your workplace examples, you may list them at the end of  the table; make a note in the table to see the attached examples, however, so your  facilitator knows to look for scenarios below the table.  4.
