J​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​OURNAL Topic 3 (minimum of 500 words)
In Week 5 we learn about the concept of dehumanization, various way to approach the topic of rights, and we move further into a study of virtue theory and how it is interpreted by various philosophers and philosophical/religious traditions.
Consider how you have approached the moral problems in Topics 1 and 2. Did you learn any concepts or theories this week (dehumanization, rights theory, approaches to virtue theory) that are relevant and important to your own approaches to moral problems? Identify at least TWO theories or con​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​cepts that are of interest you. Explain why these concepts or theories are of interest to you. In your explanation reflect on your own moral beliefs and core values and how the concepts and theories we are studying in this class are important or unimportant to your beliefs about and approaches to moral issues.(There are no strictly right or wrong response to these questions. Responses will be evaluated according to the depth of the response and the accuracy of describing and explaining the concepts and theories.)
My two chosen topics are dehumanization and rights theor​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​y
