Nemur and Dr. Strauss need to decide if Charlie is suitable for the first surgical operation to see if they can make people smarter. The doctors did the surgery on animals before Charlie and they were successful, at the time. The doctors did a lot to prepare for the surgery before they did it on Charlie so they were pretty sure the operation would be a success. Charlie, as I told you before is basically a mentally handicapped man, so a slight increase in intelligence would be detectable and the results could be recorded easily. This would make the research a whole lot easier.
When Charlie became smart he wanted to finish the research that his doctors had started, I personally think that some confidence could have helped Charlie stay smart. I would tell you what Charlie discovered but that would be a spoiler alert and I refuse to do
Because of the operation, Charlie was able to grow emotionally and intellectually but was also subjected to unknown consequences of the surgery. Charlie going through with the surgery provided new information for the medical and science field but at the same time there is an issue with the morality of the surgery. In the novel, Flowers for Algernon, the author Daniel Keyes develops the idea that both good and harm can result from technology.
This key had a remarkable impact on expanding Persian empire. Theoretically, people are less likely to obey bossy leader unless fear plays a role. Cyrus built his empire based on moral principles. He did not conquer for the sake to control the world, but for Persian empire’s interest. The strategy he followed in consulting other leaders from different ethnic background added high moral and ethical values to the empire.
The world is developing and techniques will always change and become better just like technology does. The world cannot stay in the dark. They should let National Security do what they have to do in order to protect the nation. However, there are many reasons why torture is right and also why it is not right and not acceptable. How do we know that National Security is not just in love with having the power?
That is why Charlie Gordon’s life is much better off having the A.I surgery than not having it. He obtained new feelings he hasn’t experienced before, made important science discoveries, and increased intelligence. Before Charlie had the A.I surgery he had limited emotions and not able to act normally, but after the surgery Charlie is able the feel new emotions like love and anger. “I’m in love with Miss Kinnian.’’ (Keyes pg 234) This shows that Charlie is able to love and feel emotions he wouldn’t have had if he didn’t take the A.I surgery. Therefore it is right for Charlie to have the surgery so he can experience these emotions.
One might argue that Dr. Neymar and Dr. Straus did make ethical decisions in their experimental surgery. Charlie was eager and motivated to do this surgery. He was willing to start the testing right away, and the doctors could have gotten ahead of themselves and failed to follow through with asking the questions. Miss Kinnian, Charlie's teacher, also recommended Charlie for this surgery. The two doctors could have believed that Miss Kinnian was a good enough witness and that it was unnecessary
Sylvia Earle, a National Geographic marine biologist, once said, “We have become frighteningly effective at altering nature”. She means that humans have become very good at altering the natural flow of the world, and this has often led to with negative consequences. People have many opinions on the altering of nature. Some argue that an intelligence increasing operation could be of great benefit to society, opening the door to smarter, more advanced citizens and a more advanced society, because they will be able to solve the problems that currently plague the world. However, although the artificial increase of intelligence has some potential benefits, such a procedure would be more harmful than helpful, because of the resulting increased gaps
Michael Mosley’s research and account of the history of some of the experiments conducted shows that the discoveries made by pioneer psychologists has paved the way to new technologies and treatments for the people of today. Without these important discoveries, it is evident that society would not have as much of an understanding of the inner workings of the brain as it does now. The documentary The Brain: A Secret History paints a picture that these experiments were necessary in the past because they have brought forth a new understanding of disorders of the brain today, and without them, we may not have as clear of an understanding about our brains as we do
Testing on animals is not only inhumane, it is also more expensive than alternative methods. Scientist have developed new methods to help human health such as, using human cells and tissues which is also known as “Vitro Method”. Another method would be “Silico Models” which is computer-modeling techniques and studies with human volunteers. We live in a world full of intelligent machines and very advance technology where everything is possible, which is why computer simulations have become a great alternative method for scientist. Computer simulations have helped scientist from all around the world to stop animal testing by allowing surgical procedures which improve lifesaving skills better than having to kill live animals in
Intermountain Healthcare has encircled analytics to improve operations in order to achieve better health care outcomes and make a big difference in patients’ lives. though it is cumbersome challenging for the physicans and nurses but still they took it as challange in order to navigate it! though the use of computer programs are used in order to analyse the patient and examines the data which requires protocols for treatment.but later HELP was the first EHR system in united states which came into existence advantages : saving million bucks in procuring and also in its supply chain! Intermountain’s approach towards the patient and also their concern towards the employees like organizational behaviour alignment to individual alignment on decison
It is obvious that the lives of human are pretty good in these years. However, there still exist some problems. Some of them are noticed by human nowadays, but others are potential issues. This era is developing, so people need to consider more about future lives. As the Dalai Lama mentions, “In developing an ethical strategy with respect to the new genetics, it is vitally important to frame our reflection within the widest possible context.”(139) In Dalai Lama’s words, the time is ripe to think problems from ethic side.
