This week, you will consider how virtue ethics applies to a controversy, dilemma, event, or scenario selected by your instructor. It is a chance for you to discuss together the ethical issues and questions that it raises, your own response to those, and whether that aligns with or does not align with a virtue ethics approach. The aim is not to simply assert your own view or to denigrate other views, but to identify, evaluate, and discuss the moral reasoning involved in addressing the chosen issue

Your posts should remain focused on the ethical considerations, and at some point in your contribution you must specifically address the way a virtue ethicist would approach this issue by explaining and evaluating that approach.

If you have a position, you should strive to provide reasons in defense of that position.

When responding to peers, you should strive to first understand the reasons they are offering before challenging or critiquing those reasons. One good way of doing this is by summarizing their argument before offering a critique or evaluation.

Allen, a data analyst for a major casino, is working after normal business hours to finish an important project. He realizes that he is missing data that had been sent to his coworker Susan. Allen had inadvertently observed Susan typing her password several days ago and decides to log into Susan’s computer and resend the data to himself. Upon doing so, Allen sees an open email regarding gambling bets Susan placed over the last several days with a local sports book. All employees of the casino are forbidden to engage in gambling activities to avoid any hint of conflict of interest.

Allen knows he should report this but would have to admit to violating the company’s information technology regulations by logging into Susan’s computer. If he warns Susan to stop her betting, he would also have to reveal the source of his information. From the point of view of virtue ethics, what should Allen do in this situation?

Remember that the following three options are different: (1) what you think Allen should do, (2) what you think the “ethical” thing to do is in general, and (3) what Allen should do from the point of view of virtue ethics. Your post should focus on (3) what Allen should do from the point of view of virtue ethics.
