Here is a challenge for you. Find an example in film or tv of the following:

  • Relativism
  • Naturalism and Emotivism
  • Ethics and Egoism,
  • Ethics and Utalitarianism
  • Kant's Moral Philosophy
  • Natural Law Theory
  • Social Contract Theory
  • Virtue Ethics
  • Euthanasia and Capital Punishment
  • Enviromental Ethics


Winners get cookies.
I'm actually helping out a lecturer but don't have encyclopedic film knowledge. Good luck.

I don't watch a lot of TV or movies, and I'm sleep-deprived at the moment, so that's all I've got for you now.
