We all tend to judge someone that has something different about them. Racial profiling can be unfair and unreasonable. It has been with us since slavery, but people have been ignoring the issue. This has become one of the biggest controversy in the world. Many individuals have been humiliated and scared off by cops.
What Matters to Us? Ethical Hedonism explores the maximization of our pleasure and happiness as a fundamental obligation for morality; but Nozick’s experiment demonstrates that pleasure and happiness doesn’t only matters to us. This essay argues that Nozick’s thought experiment, the “experience machine” exemplifies the weaknesses of Ethical Hedonism, as perfecting the machine illustrates that to truly live our lives; we must value other matters besides pleasure. Firstly, this essay will discuss Nozick’s thought experiment “the experience machine” and what the experiment reveals. Secondly, reasonable objections to why I wouldn’t enter a machine that promises me maximal pleasure as Nozick identifies several issues exposed by the thought experiment.
This is where we will discuss the first negative of situation ethics. Situation ethics is individualistic, because decisions must be made within the situation as it’s perceived to be. It isn’t easy to be certain that ones perception of the situation is correct. How can a specific individual, such as the Arrow, safely decide whats the most loving action? Humans don’t have an objective perspective and could end up justifying unloving actions on the basis of loving results that will never emerge.
The virtue ethics theory focuses on what actions or choices an individual should choose based on their own personal inward character. Therefore, if an individual’s character is good then his or her actions or choices should also be good. The virtue ethics theory places responsibility on the individual for their actions or choices when confronted with a moral dilemma. Whereas, “a utilitarian or a Kantian theorist asks, what should I do?, a virtue ethicist asks, in effect, what should I be?” (Vaughn, 2010, pg. 134).
Moral virtues to some may seem outdated in the contemporary times, however, they are necessary in most aspects of day to day life. For example, according to William W. Fortenbaugh in Aristotle’s Conception of Moral Virtue and Its Perceptive Role, “[…] good deliberate choice requires both moral virtue and practical reason” (77). Making a good decision requires guidance and moral virtue accompanied by practical reason help to make it. This, “good deliberate choice,” is what makes moral virtues needed still in today’s society and support Aristotle’s moral theory. Whether the good deliberate choice is helping someone else or doing what is morally right, they are usually shadowed by a virtuous undertone.
Besides, Oliver Kamm strongly refers in the article to the ethical side of the problem of grammar pedantry, which might not be supported by his opponents. He claims that the behavior of grammar pedants is used as an evidence of considering some people “social superiors” and points out the snobbish nature of the debate. However, this ethical aspect connected to language use might be argued to have no relation to grammar
If educators can find ways to support autonomous motivation in the delivery of instruction, then optimal learning can be achieved (Niemiec & Ryan, 2009). Deci and Ryan (2000) postulate that an individual needs intrinsic motivation as well as three intrinsic psychological needs in order to initiate these behaviours and maintain good psychological well-being and self-determination (as cited by Niemiec & Ryan 2009). These universal needs are autonomy, competence, and relatedness. These components together form the self-determination model which emphasizes supporting student autonomy in order to achieve positive learning outcomes. Intrinsic motivation refers to behaviours done in the absence of external impetus that are inherently interesting and
Virtue ethics started drawing attention since the modern ethics exposed its limitation and reconsideration about the priority was needed. Contemporary ethics focus on “What we should do”, instead of “What kind of person we should do”. In consequence, the moral codes in modern era solely emphasizes moral duty and rules, while neglecting personality and character of individuals. Virtue ethics support the traditional criterion that consider moral virtue and personality of individuals as important. The virtue of good engineer includes creativity, good understanding of culture, morality, and capability of communication.
It also states that ethics and the law typically go hand in hand, however it is not always the case, as the law must be based on ethical principles for it to be legitimate, and not only on their legal implementation by fear of being punished, ethical principles must take superiority when the law disagrees with ethics (Breit, 2007). Breit (2007) wrote that practitioners should choose the ethical choice rather than following the law, however the choices must be motivated by the right reasons, and the consequences of action must be well thought
Other reasons I have found for trafficking are kidnapping, poverty, greed, lust, abuse, control, fear, pedophilia, and the economy. I have experienced this first hand, I have seen the hurt and pain it causes. You look into one of these trafficked little girls eyes and your heart just breaks. Theres so many reasons why it happens, but for us it is so hard to grasp that people could do such a horrible thing. I think it all comes back down to what I stated before, “Hurt people, hurt
