These final words of Candide are not ones to retreat from politics or philosophy, they are simply a new interpretation of how to handle the “bad” and ugly in the world. Rather than dismissing philosophy altogether, it only denies that no matter what the best possible world will be there waiting for us. We cannot just sit around and waste time hoping that the “best” will be there for us, we have to take the first step and work for it. Basically stating that we cannot be living in our best possible world without putting in at least some effort and work. As for it being in a political standpoint, Voltaire only speaks the truth on how our civilizations are ran and what the authorities do about it.
This proposal implies that the difficulties Magellan went through are the reason why he should be considered as a hero. On the other word, if Magellan had had good ship and well-trained sailor, he would not be considered as a hero, or if he had not finished the voyage, he also would be considered as a hero. How ridiculous is it! If there is thing that makes Magellan become a hero, it should the result of this voyage but not his stubbornness and skill. Although Magellan’s characteristic plays a critical role in his voyage, it is one of the many factors that led to the success of this globe-trip.
Support: Eric Thomas, the author of the book ‘The Secret to Success’, once said about success that whatever paths taking us to success, at some point we all have to go through the boulevard of hard work. Example: If you want to achieve success, hard work and dedication are the second element after explicit plans. In addition, we had better take responsibility for our tasks. None can help us to fulfil our targets but ourselves, hence learning to bear responsibility is very essential. Support: According to Christina DesMarais, hard work and dedication will help us to grasp more chances so as to knock the door of success.
The health and perception of customers in the market are essential. The only way to ensure that this transpires is by producing quality products. The move to increase the cost of some products would be wrong. It would confirme that the company does not have strict ethical principles. Letting go of the marketing executives is a chance to propagate new ethical norms within the
In the essay, “The Ethics of Belief” by William K. Clifford, Clifford argues how one believes is not only responsible for self, but for others as well (Burger, 2008). He believes that one should not believe something without sufficient evidence or vigilant reasoning because you are morally obligated to others. Additionally, Clifford does not consider belief and action to be unconnected, because beliefs can result in actions that affect others. Clifford uses a shipowner sending an emigrant-ship out to sea as an example. Initially, the shipowner has reservations about his ship being old and needing an expensive overhaul to be deemed seaworthy as suggested by some experienced personnel.
Individuals often say that the right way may not necessarily be the popular way, but standing up for the right thing, despite it being frowned upon, will be the true test of one’s moral character. This relates to the moral growth that Huck Finn experiences throughout his journey. Mark Twain’s controversial novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, can be said to be a compelling story about how one individual, Huck Finn, goes against society’s ideals. Huck’s moral development can be said to be based primarily on those around him, especially Jim. Many instances also influence Huck’s morals, particularly during the raft journey that will change his beliefs and morals.
The Boys on the Boat by Daniel James Brown is an example of how someone’s past has a major influence on their future. Basing one’s decisions off of past experiences is often smart because then a person can better predict the outcome of the situation, but when a person’s past experiences turn out to be no longer applicable or relevant it is a problem. This is because people often become fixated on previous experiences in their lives and then base their entire personalities around in. This defence mechanism is the most comfortable thing for people to do because they do not want to relive specific events in the past especially those that hurt them. Joe Rantz the person that the Boys in the Boat focuses on is an example of a person who is extremely motived by his past experiences.
Whenever people are caught in a dilemma, they always do what protects their reputation. The first thought that comes to mind is which decision will benefit them the most. However, ignoring the disadvantages presented by the dilemma could lead to further consequences. People do not commit to what they truly believe in, but rather make a decision based off of how everyone else would see them. This is seen in The Crucible by Arthur Miller.
By exposing to the forefront external topical social problems, Oscar Wilde does not forget about the timeless aspects of the spiritual life of society. After reading the play "How important it is to be Earnest" it 's simple to find some kind of ethical inconsistency, but one should not take it seriously. Always keeping in mind the aesthetic program offered by Oscar Wilde (beauty as the defining
I would agree with Dewey when he stated that “’growth itself is the moral end’ and that to ‘protect, sustain and direct growth is the chief ideal of education’” because, as we grow, we are unaware of what we will be when we finish, if there is such a thing as one who has finished self-creating (cited by Rorty, 1999). Indeed, we should not set rigid boundaries which would only keep us from challenging and even undoing the effects of socialization. Thus, given that the concept of growth possessed immense flexibility, I believe the society or an individual could be said to be growing if it changed consciously, with considerable knowledge about the influences of one’s agents of socialization. Simply put, the deliberateness of one’s development, in my opinion, is the most crucial point of

Even though Columbus and Cortés share the same intention of the letter, the tone and the style of the letter is disparate. Cortés illustrates in detail, exclusively by presenting his military and leadership side, to persuade the king to let Cortés stay alive. On the other side, Columbus 's goal of the letter was to inform Santangel that this was a great investment, but also longs more fund for the future. If Columbus did not write his letter in his way, the benefactor would not have financed him for his next voyage. Both of the authors are seeking frantically to advance it to the next voyage whether if it by surviving from severe consequences or by getting the fund.
Cathy’s may believe that his actions was virtuous, however; his comments and actions are in contrast to this ethical principle. Another ethical principle that can be applied to the case is the deontological theory of categorical imperative. Under this ethical principle Cathy could argue that he had a moral duty to state and follow the laws that are given from God asserting that we are bringing God’s judgement on ourselves when we try to redefine the definition of marriage. Also under this principle it is the responsibility of the business to do the greatest good for its stakeholders in general. When Cathy stated his stance against same-sex marriage he was not thinking of his customers or the employees of the organization.
The “growth mindset” is the attitude that challenges need not be faced with dread, but instead, with a desire to learn from failure. In her book, Mindset, Dr. Dweck discusses the long-term benefits of the growth mindset and discourages approaching challenges with a fixed mindset, the attitude that an infallible identity is much more important than learning. Though many individuals with the fixed mindset remain skeptical about the existence of the growth mindset, the growth mindset does exist and can easily be differentiated from the fixed mindset. In fact, Dr. Dweck conducted lengthy research that demonstrates not only the existence of the growth mindset, but also the effectiveness of this mindset. The freshmen at the University of Hong Kong exemplify the existence of the growth mindset.
With such surprising sentences the designer is seeking for people to take action and this is mostly seen when the last line of the advertisement is “you can’t afford to ignore it.” If the creator would have left out the two lines that use logos the advertisement would not have the same impact because the creator would have no proof to support his claim. Through the use of logos the designer uses evidence to support his claims while establishing credibility. The establishment of credibility by the designer is somewhat credible. The creator uses facts to support his claims, earning him some respect because he has evidence in order to sustain his advertisement.
