Utilitarianism is when an effort is made to try and provide an answer to a practical question. Utilitarianism relies on a theory of intrinsic value.

Zimbardo quotes Harvard psychologist Mahrzarin Banaji to explain his view, “What social psychology has given to an understanding of human nature is the discovery that forces larger than ourselves determine our mental life and our actions – chief among these forces [is] the power of the social situation”
The final problem in morality is the relationship between right and good. According to East Asian philosophy, the right is seen as the realm of morality (what one ought to do, rituals, etc.) while the good is seen as (a good) life (Magagna, 2014).

Also, the results of our experience and our judgment are supposed to help us differentiate right and wrong. An argument used to justify evil is co-creating. Walsch’s theodicy addresses an answer to natural evils.

In the current decade, students are often encouraged to comment and criticize one’s work. This process is looked as a way to make students think and apply what they had learnt in classrooms. I agree that it indeed provokes students’ thought process and is effective for them to gain better understanding on a certain topic.

In theory, he thinks that if God exists then evil should not, but it does. So he creates and argues a theodicy to show that God and evil can exist at the same time. He comes up with the “Free Will Theodicy” which states that humans are the cause of evil, not God. The Free Will Theodicy discusses two kinds of evil: moral evil and natural evil. Natural evil is evil that is not caused by human choice such as natural disasters and disease.
