In 500 words or more (no less), create a maxim and evaluate it via the three formulations of the Categorical Imperative. Your maxim should only involve moral questions [i.e. “Stealing is always wrong”, but not “Doing jumping jacks is always wrong”]. The moral question should be general enough to apply to first principles and should involve no circumstantial qualifiers [i.e. “Stealing is always wrong”, not “If I am not hungry or chasing a bad guy or when no one is looking, stealing is always wrong”]. You may use examples, but you will still need to include a full scholarly definition of each with commentary. You are required to attach as a separate document an annotated bibliography (see a sample here). Using the resource center and Google Scholar (or similar scholarly tools), create an annotated bibliography with 5 sources related to an overview of the ethical theory of the week. You must cite your references using APA formatting (this is 10% of your grade).
You can find tools and examples of APA citation formats at the Purdue University Online Writing Lab.
