Reflection involves critical thinking, which means rethinking your existing knowledge and previously held opinions in light of what we have learned about theories of ethics, logic, and reasoning. You will need to question your current knowledge and beliefs.
Discuss the main points of the debate, what stance you take, support that stance, and discuss the opposing argument. Also discuss an ethical theory that would apply to defend your view.
To complete each scenario assignment:
Complete the entire scenario.
Compose your reflection in a Word document and be sure to address, at a minimum, the following questions:Why do you feel the way you do about the issue presented?
Of the four responses offered in the scenario, which do you think is the most ethical and why?
Support your conclusions with evidence and specific examples from the textbook, including a minimum of one theory of ethics to defend your stance.
Your reflection must be 1-2 pages in length and follow APA formatting and citation guidelines as appropriate, making sure to cite at least two sources.

Environmental ethic philosophy
One summery and two Philosophical Discussion Points of pages 1-102. After each sentence you have to write the page number. For example: sentence ( page number). The summery should include all main points in the reading. The discussion points are philosophical—they illustrate whether you think the theorist is right or wrong and give reasons as to why. I will send the pages and more helpful information later.

IntroductionKant’s famous First Formulation of the Categorical Imperative reads, “Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law.” Kant taught morality as a matter of following maxims of living that reflect absolute laws. “Universal” is a term that allows for no exceptions, and what is universal applies always and everywhere. Don’t forget about the second formulation of the categorical imperative which states, “Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of another, always at the same time as an end and never simply as a means.” It is just as important.
Initial Post InstructionsFor the initial post, address one of the following sets of questions:

Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence.
In Lesson 12, the goal is to introduce the topic of AI in a general and comprehensive way. I’ll lay the conceptual groundwork for the remaining few lessons, and I’ll try to address some common misconceptions in the popular discussions of AI. I make available a number of resources and examples available in several lecture videos that together serve as an intro to AI, ethics, and philosophy. These are the lecture videos I use in my other courses (STS 351 [supanova_question]
