Making Sense of Ethics in a Modern Scientific Worldview: Essay

I just finished a "prototype" of my final paper for my Modern/Contemporary Philosophy class answering the question that has plagued modern philosophy in the West, "How, given the advent and advance of 'the modern scientific worldview,' can we capture 'the fact of value:' the fact that we all have and act from ideas about how to live?". I had to consider three philosophers from a list and discuss their ideas regarding moral philosophy, evaluate their ideas, and select which philosopher I most agree with and then offer a conclusion regarding how to make sense of values.

I could have easily written a long treatise on this (expanding on ideas and further considering other philosophers), but kept discussion to five full pages. Enjoy.
