Paper instructions:

Write a 5-8 page essay that either affirms or denies that ethics is a science. If you affirm that ethics is a science you must, at the very least, use the arguments from Nicomachean Ethics and Moral Theory (David S. Oderberg) in addition to your own. If you deny that ethics is a science you need to address the arguments from NE and MT showing that they fail to meet the criteria (which you will need to provide) for a proper science. Whatever you do, you must include the subject matter, aim, and the necessary starting points required for a science of ethics. You may use other relevant scholarly sources (no websites).

The style may be MLA or Chicago/Turabian. In either case, I want the Bekker numbers when you cite Aristotle. DO NOT CITE THE DICTIONARY.
