Niccolò Machiavelli, Baldassare Castiglione and George Washington all had small factors of similarity within their interpretation of an ideal person, some more than others. Machiavelli valued the unpleasant truth, so that people would view the world with a notion of realism. He also always wanted to be in control and make his own decisions without anyone else's opinion to mar his idea of keeping authority with others. And he furthermore pushed the trait of fake sincerity. Instead of truthfully being honest, religious and merciful, he told one that you should fake it, so that when the time arrives, you can switch your personality.
If a soldier chose to enter a war knowing it was unjust, that soldier could be held accountable for his actions. In cases, a soldier used to be not at fault for a leader not informing his nation of his intentions nor at fault for not being able to find information to discredit the morality of war. Though, over the course of just-war theory development, theorists have designed ten ways to measure what is truly invincible and vincible ignorance and adjusted means to modern times. Explanation of Forms of Ignorance Religion and Its Doctrine The first two ways to measure
Sir Pellinore demonstrated how dishonor can be your doom and could lead to your death, exhibiting how important honor is. Given these points, it’s fair to say that “The Wedding of King Arthur” is indeed an exemplary text trying to instruct the viewer to be honorable. In the end, the choice is yours; honor doesn’t have as much importance in our society as it did in Arthur’s, yet you could still use it as an inspiration for your own code of
On the other hand, if you were acting from duty, you may say “I will help people because I know I should help people.” As we know, “should” means do it. It this situation it is almost as if you may feel like you are forcing yourself to do something because you know you should and it will benefit someone else. Even though you may not want to donate to charity, you know you are supposed to because it is the right thing to do and you should always do the right thing, even if it does not benefit you in any
This essential means that you should not use people to benefit your needs without thinking of their interests and benefit to the actions, he said this is because people have the ability to set their own goals and they are autonomous being which means that they exist for themselves and not other people. However, people are being used all the time, for example, a teacher is used by learners to get the information they need to know, but the teacher is not used as mere means because he is aware and willing to help the learners, which means that he was not deceived or manipulated to give information to the learners, this according to Kant means that the autonomy of the teacher was regarded and he had something to gain too because by teaching the learners he got a salary which means that he was not used as a mere ends In a school environment it is important to note that learners as well as teacher have rights that need to be respected at all
We do this in our everyday lives, actually. It makes our lives easier. Sometimes we say things that are not completely true because it is the “right thing to say”, or it’s what is “socially expected to say.” With Meursault, however, what you see is what you get. He did not say or do things to be politically correct or to end up on good terms with anyone.
He analyzes the moral obligations that exist and states that if someone performs a moral duty but also acts on one of the four natural inclinations then the meaning behind their actions are weaker and therefore less important. An action performed for moral duty without any tendency towards natural inclination hold the truest form of moral duty that we should all strive to perform for others in order to become a better society that is more understanding and respectful of the people around us. With Immanuel Kant’s ideas on moral duty and inclination we can continue to further analyze our actions and the actions of others that we see to gain the best perspective possible. Teaching moral duties without reason may be simple but I believe it to be detrimental in the long run as these types of actions are the glue that holds us all together with our social interactions, pursuit of knowledge and desire to
Intrinsic value means that something has “in itself’ or “for its own sake” or “as such” or “on its own right”. Detailing the concept that do good not for your sake but because it causes happiness to others and spreads goodwill. Kant wanted people to have the ethic in which they don’t use other people as instruments
People have to act accordingly to their obligations regardless of the positive or negative outcome of their actions. According to deontologists, it is wrong to kill, to steal, to lie, and it is right to keep promises and to help people. One should not lie about anything even though that lie could save a lot of lives. In addition, one should not perform a prohibited action even though it could bring uncountable benefits to society (Kant’s Deontological ethics). Deontology is the opposite of consequentialism.
Free will also creates a standard and moral responsibility for people to conform to. Free will causes people to hold themselves and others more responsible for their actions, as they agree that harsh consequences should follow if moral rules are broken. Free will encourages people to take responsibility for their moral actions and the potential consequences encourage more positive moral
But that last thing is that that is what i feel about hammurabi code, But it is fair to just. Hammburabi code is fair. Because the reason why i had chosen this and seen laws are that. It isnt right for somebody that has done something bad and then they dont get in trouble.
In society, people should be ethically responsible with helping people. People act ethically responsible when one is in need of assistance because they let their sympathetic feelings of compassion take over their intentions. Ethical responsibility is a duty or obligation to ensure the individual’s well-being through specific commitments; such as saving someone from a certain tragedy. One piece of evidence from the text that demonstrates the sudden acts of ethical responsibility is “Can the Law Make Us Be Decent” by Jay Sterling Silver. Though many may argue that Silver’s argument is invalid, most will agree that his argument is in fact agreeable.
I believe I am more similar to the Extroverted, Sensing, Thinking, and intuition type than the Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and intuition type. This is mainly because I am a thinker, not feelers. I am a leader who can be pretty stubborn and bossy, and I like to choose the decision I know is right, even if it doesn 't benefit other people. I believe the reason I had an inaccurate first test, Is because I was sugar-coating some of my behaviors. When the test asked, "Do you usually make sure you get your way or do you value others opinions just as much as yours?
Morality, principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong, is a characteristic that many people share throughout the world. Every person’s actions are guided by their ethics, but thousands of individuals wonder what influences these certain morals. During the 1930s, citizen’s morals were affected by their religion, as evident in The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. Within this time period, the main influence of citizen’s ethics is based on religion. The Dust Bowl, the start of the Great Depression, marked the decline of the economy and the end to thousands of farmers lives.
