In your writing assignment you will analyze a moral question from the perspectives of the four
families of moral values.
Your first step is to select a moral question from Section 1 (The Personal, pages 1-61), or
Section 2 (The Public, pages 62-115), or Section 3 (The Political, pages 116-165) of George’s
What Should I Do? Be sure to just choose ONE question total to work on (not one question
from each section of George). The questions are those in italics. For example, on page 1 at the
top there is the italicized question that begins “My five-year-old daughter…”—that is one
question (followed by commentary by a philosopher). On page 3 there is the italicized question
that begins “My daughter, who is 14, wants to have a boyfriend…”—that is another question,
followed by commentary. That pattern is repeated throughout Sections 1-3 of the book; on page
45 there is the italicized question that begins “If by my death I could save…”—that is another
question, and so on. You are to select one italicized question to work on for this writing
assignment (but selected only from Section 1 or Section 2 or Section 3—do not select a question
from Section 4).
Once you have selected a moral question, you must prepare an analysis of that question that
consists of six sections. The sections of your analysis must be completed in the following way.
