You are a freelance journalist. The editor of a popular blog on modern ethical issues has asked you to write an article that provides a historical perspective on the modern debate regarding the use of torture. She has asked you to read and analyze three articles, each making an argument about whether or not torture can ever be considered ethical. It is your job to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the three articles’ arguments and to consider what two important philosophers, John Stuart Mill and Immanuel Kant, would have to say about them.

Directions

Use the Project resources to familiarize yourself with the ethical ideas of Mill and Kant, and read the three articles provided. Then follow the instructions in the Organizer, located in Project resources, to prepare for writing your article.
