Again, Strawson clarifies the Basic Argument that moral responsibility is impossible, this time "in very loose- as it were conversational- terms"(219). In a simpler matter, you do what you do because of the way you are. To be truly morally responsible for what you do, you must be responsible for the way you are. But, you cannot be truly responsible for the way you are; therefore, you cannot truly be morally responsible for what you do. Strawson follows this explanation of the argument by stating that we are what we are, and no punishment or reward is "fitting" for us.
And all lifelong events are predestined. Destiny is based on fate because whatever fate is doing to human life it will definitely lead to the destiny of life. The idea about the fate and destiny causes inactivity and it stopping the man from all forms of effort to improve and to progress in his life. It s well known that when a individual fail to reach his goals for whatever reason, they began to console him or herself on blaming the luck or fate or they considered that it is the chance which take them to the particular stage. Belief in destiny and fate does not prevent a person to reach its goal.
Meaning that once we die we are determined by the perspectives of others and thus their individual experience of us. Sartre explains this as death being a facticity which “alienates us wholly in our life to the advantage of the Other [...] To be dead, is to be a prey for the living.” (Sartre, 2003, p. 564). Here Sartre is referring to the idea that one can die too early or too late, too soon to have an impact or too late to be remembered correctly. This leads us to the idea that My Death cannot appear in a situation because “my death is not fixed by me; the sequences of the universe determines it.” (Sartre, 2003, p. 559). Meaning that our freedom, while alive, while in a situation, has no power over our death.
Locke argues that only creatures that think and make choices have rights. He states that there is a main right which is humans right to live free. For humans to survive and prosper, men must be protected from the force of others (1). Because this is the only thing to prevent
They believe that no matter what they do, they don’t have the power or ability to change the things or events that are going to happen since it was all fated. However, with agency in human, they believe that something will be bound to changes with their action. They believe they could do something to modify the ending to anything but the known-predicted ending. Sophocles has seamlessly engaged determinism into the book through making known that Apollo’s predictions will happen to Oedipus. To King Laius and Queen Jocasta, Apollo was the mighty one; his prediction is and will be the only truth to them.
INTRODUCTION The term ‘Natural Law Theories’ can be defined as the rules, concepts, and principles which are said to be originated from some supreme source other than any political or worldly authority. This theory is based on moral ideals which has universal applicability, and often used to bring certain changes in the society or to maintain stability. Natural Law is supreme and unalterable, it is not made by man; Natural Law is not a codified law and hence no penalty is been sanctioned for disobeying it; still it is considered as a higher form of law. Natural Law is also known as the Law of Reason, as being established on the ground of reasonability by which the world is governed, and also as being addressed to and perceived by the rational
Humans return to authority even if they have the freedom, because their answer lies in comparison. Societies’ common sense becomes higher than people’s nature, so they start to understand that for the bright future they need the authority, because the freedom is very quick and unstable moment and the source of freedom is authority. Surely, at the beginning concept of freedom is very tempting, you feel free to do everything you want. Freedom gives you opportunities to live in a way you want. However, humans’ egoism and selfishness disturb others’ freedom, because they think freedom is something that will solve their life problems and reduce responsibility from them.
we are responsible for doing what we can to cultivate our strengths and manage our vulnerabilities. • The fact is that there are certain things in life we are responsible for, and many that we are not. The secret is to discover the delicate balance between fate and responsibility without turning down relative freedom to become who we wish. • fate is different from destiny . Fate refers to the givens of life, those aspects of existence that are undisputable, unstoppable and unavoidable, and over which we have no control.
According to “Utopia and Anti-Utopia” it says “That a loss of individual freedom is the cost of utopian striving.” I agree with this statement, the characters in the book possess no freedom therefore, how is it a perfect society? To go along with that statement “Freedom necessarily means that many things will be done which we do not like. Our faith in freedom does not rest on the foreseeable results in particular circumstances but on the belief that it will, on balance, release more forces for the good than for the bad” (The Giver’s Dystopia). Freedom is something we all possess in this world. Our freedom does sometimes result in negative actions, but without it we cannot be the person we want to be.
This imperative denotes an absolute, unconditional requirement and that one should always treat others as ends in themselves and never as means to our ends. No one should not have their individual freedom compromised for some other end, in particular for the good of the society. Kantians moral deontological theory explicates the value of every person existing. He would believe the act of creating savior siblings is morally impermissible and that the act does not respect the child’s basic human rights. Kant believes that intentions do not promote goodwill or moral duty.
