Prior to doing so , you are required to explain (in its entirety) the moral decision-making procedure that you have chosen to apply. During the process of the application of the moral decision-making procedure that you have selected, you are required to make us of all of the relevant factual information with which you have been provided in the case (below). Identify, explain, and consider from the perspective of the moral decision-making procedure that you have chosen to apply at least two of the moral issue(s) that you decide are raised by the case. This is a THINKING paper. Maure LeChale-Engedd, a freshman at Gnognead Thoonontin University, was assigned a paper project by his British Literature professor on Shakespeare’s Othello, the Moor of Venice. The professor had made clear that this paper project was not a research paper; rather, the students in this class were instructed to write their own “literary analyses” of the play. Maure read, carefully, the play in question after which he prepared an outline, and then, he completed a rough draft of his literary analysis. A few days before the due date for this project, Maure found himself in the dorm room of an acquaintance who is an upperclassman and, by sheer happenstance, Maure noticed, among the books on a bookshelf, a copy of the Spark Notes on Shakespeare’s Othello. As Maure removed it from the shelf, the acquaintance informed him that he, too, had taken this course in British Literature and that such study aids had helped him to pass the course. He proceeded to ask Maure whether he would like to borrow it, and Maure decided to do so. As Maure pored over the Spark Notes on Othello, he noticed that each of the two main insights that he, himself, had identified in the rough draft of his own literary analysis of the play was identified in this study aid, but that each of them was developed in a much more sophisticated way than he was capable of doing. Maure decided to revise his rough draft in order to incorporate this newfound sophistication and this additional detail relevant to both of these insights concerning the play. In the class meeting on which this literary analysis was due, Maure, proudly, submitted his final draft, which included the improvements as borrowed from the study aid. As it happens, no where in her instructions for this paper project had the professor even mentioned the use of study aids. Identify, explain, and consider from the perspective of the moral decision-making procedure that you have chosen to apply at least two of the moral issue(s) that you decide are raised by the case.
