Find a pop/science or popular article on a topic of your choice that is related to morality and use it as the basis for your research essay.
Identify your selected article and provide a brief background to your specific topic, emphasizing what your paper will address. Be sure that your evaluation of the article and your own argument are clearly defined. You may decide to change aspects of your topic, and your argument may evolve as you write. Include a strong concluding sentence, perhaps highlighting the stakes or greater scholarly significance of your paper.
