The Good Life

The Good Life

Imagine you could go back in time and give your childhood self a
letter in which you explain your current view of the good and ethical
life. Write a 3 page letter to your childhood self explaining your
view of the Good in which you:

Identify at least one philosopher who might agree with your view of
the Good. Explain that philosophical ethical theory and discuss how it
compares to your own views.
Discuss how another philosopher might disagree. For example, if you
discuss deontology in support of your view, utilitarianism might be a
good point of contrast. Virtue and care ethics are very similar, but it
would be interesting to explore their differences as well.
Support your account of the theories with citations to the textbook and online lectures in correct APA format.
