Confucius and Aristotle on Virtue. Write an essay comparing these two (2) ancient thinkers on the concept of virtue or good ethical character and conduct. Stay focused on the issue; keep any biographical or other information short or limited. As much as possible, analyze their writings (in translation, of course), using Confucius' Analects (at http://classics.mit.edu/Confucius/analects.html ) and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics (at http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/nicomachaen.html ). Your paper should:
a) Compare the teachings of Confucius and Aristotle on what constitutes virtue or good ethical character and conduct, noting similarities and differences in specific ideas or emphasis.
b) Consider what your findings suggest about differences between ancient Chinese and ancient Greek culture.
c) From this comparison, suggest ideas of virtue that can apply to ethics in a modern setting, such as a diverse workplace. The Project Paper will be graded on:
1.The level to which the instructions were followed for the paper generally and for the specific topic.
2.The establishment of a clear thesis about your topic.
3.The adequacy and relevance of information, examples, and details which support the general thesis.
4.Covering each part of the topic as instructed, including the comparisons, the consideration of ancient cultural differences, and the reflection on lessons for modern society or the modern workplace.
5.The quality of your research and your persuasiveness using critical reasoning.
6.The use and acknowledgement of a minimum of three (3) required references (the class textbook plus at least two (2) other quality academic sources) documented using the APA style –including both the use of a proper References list and the use of proper in-text citations.
7.Adherence to standard rules of grammar, punctuation, paragraphing, and mechanics, and general clarity of presentation.
