In this Module, you have learned the difference between normative claims and descriptive claims. This is an extremely important distinction to make, as we will rely on this distinction throughout the course. Before we move on to learning about and discussing a wide range of ethical theories, I’d like you to master this distinction. In your initial post, you must do the following:
Give an example of a normative claim and explain why it is a normative claim.
Give an example of a descriptive claim and explain why it is a descriptive claim.
