English 102 Paragraph Exercise #2
Choose one of the philosophical theories that Murtagh describes in “Punishment” (utilitarianism, retributivism, or Hart’s theory) and write one paragraph explaining why the theory you chose is better, more morally correct, or in some other way superior to the others.
Use source material (quotes, summaries, or paraphrases) from Murtagh to support your point. You may also include material from other class readings if you wish. Remember to introduce and explain each piece of source material, and make sure that your paragraph is balanced between your own words and ideas and the ideas of your source. You must use in-text citations for all source material. In addition, please write a Works Cited sheet for this assignment. You should use at least one direct quote in your paragraph.
