Furthermore, a society that has no concept of family is against human nature and should be refrained. Also, raising children in a community has ties with indoctrination and poses a threat for a creation of healthy open minded
Reason and emotion are the only two capacities that exist. He argues that emotion is unreliable so we should rely on reason (Pojman and Vaughn, 296-298) By eliminating children’s autonomy, parents treat children as mere means to an end. Kantians cannot distinguish between normal parents and parents of disabled children, since the categorical imperative is an unconditional command. (Shafer-Landau, 155) Violating it would give superior status to other children and that is unfair. We must act fairly because Kant assumes humans possess equal rationality.
The state is obliged to protect their natural right to property, life and freedom. The more people, the wider the range of their responsibility to society. The State, therefore, does not have the absolute arbitrariness. The social contract involves, according to Locke, and the responsibility of the state to its citizens. If the state does not fulfill its duty to the people, if it violates the freedom of the people, the people have the right to fight against the state.
Kohlberg’s theory of moral development has motivated researchers to debate and criticise the theory based on its lack of explaining the roles of culture and family in moral development (Santrock, 2015). These criticisms form arguments against Kohlberg’s claim that his theory is applicable universally applicable to all children of all diversities (Matlala, 2011). Kohlberg, as cited in Santrock (2015), does not ascertain the difference between moral reasoning and moral behaviour. Yet, critics have stated that there is a difference. If someone’s reasoning or thinking is moral, it does not necessarily mean that their actions reflect that thought process (Santrock, 2015).
Civil disobedience rejects the idea that if one wishes to live in a certain society, one must obey that society’s laws and policies. The social contract theory is the agreement among society to put in place moral and political governing rules of behaviour in order to form the society in which they live in. According to John Locke, the State of Nature is where people live together in the state of complete liberty to conduct the best fitting life for oneself. Furthermore, the State of Nature has no governing body which results in an anarchy, where a society is unable to exist. The State of Nature assumes everyone to be equal as well as that each person possesses their own natural rights.
Existentialism In simpler terms existentialism is a philosophy concerned with finding self and the meaning of life through free will, decisions , and own authority . The faith is that people are searching to find out who and what 's they are throughout life as they make variety based on their skills , faith, and viewpoint . And own decisions become unique without the necessity of a unbiased truths. An Existentialist believes that a person should be forced to choose and be answerable without the help of law, moral values or
Your home and family are supposed to be the one space where you have control. However, no person can really be controlled, and when they are harmed by the person controlling them, which in this case is man, they are bound to rebel. This is why as a man it is important to be conscious of your actions while performing them, realizing that what society tells us is not always correct, or the best course of action. As the one being controlled, whether that be woman, child, or slave, it is important to realize the autonomy of the individual person and that patriarchal control, at least to some degree, rests on the compliance of the person being
However difficult arrises from the assumption are that these conditions were formed from observers who view child protection from an ideal society namely functionalist view point; because the conditions are not practical in all settings and they appear vague. According to Otway the bureaucratization of social work with children and families gives rise to an approach there is now a concentration of agreements, task completion and skills training instead of therapeutic interventions. This methodology shifts the social workers’ approach from people-oriented to task-oriented. This in child care protection poses
The obligation to respect is a negative obligation which requires the states to refrain from interfering, either directly or indirectly in the enjoyment of social and economic rights. It also requires the state to respect the freedom of individuals to utilize the resources at their disposal to meet their social and economic needs. Further the obligation to respect also
But these ‘pleasures’ will not create a good life. They are based upon unreliable feelings “neither virtues nor vices are feelings.”(1105b29) This is why it is parents and teachers should teach youth the correct virtues, train good habits and behavior, and instill this moral compass so that children will grow to find their proper function. Educators must ensure that young people do not lie, cheat, or steal, or else these immoral behaviors will carry through adulthood and one will never reach the true pleasure of eudaimonia. After all, “each function is completed well when its completion expresses the proper virtue. Therefore the human good turns out to be the soul’s activity that expresses virtue.” (1098a15-17) Only with virtues will one achieve pleasure, happiness and
