1. Social roles require us sometime to not take into consideration facts that would normally give us moral reasons to act. Does Macintyre think that it is always morally inappropriate to do this (to ignore morally relevant considerations because of our social role)? Briefly explain your answer. (1-2 sentences)
2. Macintyre says that being a moral agent requires seeing one’s self as accountable. What does this mean? Does it have anything to do with blame or punishment? (1-3 sentences)
3. Macintyre thinks that moral agency requires a social order that encourages good critical questioning. Why (it may help to think about how this connects to questions 1 and 2)? (1-3 sentences)
4. To what extent do Macintyre & Christiano’s ideas overlap (think especially about your answers to 2 and 3)?
5. Macintyre thinks that highly compartmentalized societies make it hard to be a moral agent, but that we can blame the people in these societies for this. Why? How does this view connect to ideas we’ve covered earlier (discuss at least one of Brand-Ballard, Kagan, Talbot, or Delmas)? (1-3 sentences)

KEY WORDS TO THINK ABOUT AND APPLY THEM ACCORDINGLY!!
Demandingness: Key term “demanding.” Be able to give an example in which there is usually a prima facie moral duty to do x, but some specific person does not have that duty because it would be too demanding for them. Be able to give an example where a moral duty to do x is somewhat demanding for a person, but that person still has a moral duty to do x. If I give you examples, be able to correctly identify if they are examples involving demandingness. Be able to distinguish between cases where there is no duty to do x because that would be overly demanding, and cases where there is no duty to do x because x is impossible to do.
Authority: Key terms: “authority,” “content independent reason.” Be able to explain what each means. Be able to give plausible examples of authorities outside the context of the law (you don’t have to agree that these are authorities, you just need to have some examples that others will find plausible). If I give examples, be able to explain whether or not these terms apply to them.
