Discussion 2.2

Assume a scenario in which you are asked to author a code of ethics for a group and you can select one advisor to help with your first draft. You must choose between an advocate for deontological ethics, one for teleological ethics, and one for virtue ethics. Who do you think would be most helpful to advise you and why? Another way of thinking about the question is to ask which ethical point of view you think is most effective in reaching a shareable and effective code of ethics that most will agree to?
