Defend his position, including a well-built refutation for those who claim a study of ethics is essentially useless since the study of ethics “does not give [one] a royal road to moral truth” (4). As you make your case, you must feature at least four (4) ethical theories in your analysis. These areas would be inclusive of consequentialist, nonconsequential, virtue, and feminist ethics (including ethics of care). As well, you should include examples from at leastthree (3) areas of applied ethics.Citation for Textbook:Vaughn, Lewis. 2008. Doing ethics: moral reasoning and contemporary issues. New York: W.W.
