People react to emotions in various ways. If the emotion is good people will always want it therefore they will chase after that feeling. If the emotion is bad people tend to do whatever it takes to for it to disappear. However, trying to rid a bad emotion can lead to irrational decisions. People do what will satisfy themselves and do not think of others. Once guilt occupies the human mind it will not fade away until the issue is dealt with leading to dangerous decisions.
Morality has long been used by human being as a basis for their actions. Believers of God think that doing good deeds is being moral and thus these actions will save them from their sins. They believe that following God’s will, that is the 10 commandments and in the new commandments stated in the New Testament is the written and visible basis for these actions found in the Holy Bible. .

Kant and Mill are similar in multiple ways where both recognize the moral rules where Kant calls them duties and Mill calls them subordinate principles. Both have the subordinate principles where not to lie, no to stealing, and deprive from liberty from others. Appealing the consequences of the derived duties, where Kant considers the consequence of Maxim to become a universal law of nature, Mill considers the consequence of kind action.

Morality is a difficult idea to explain because you’re going to hear different opinions based on who you ask.To some, the individual is the most important concern, but to others it is the collective who are the most important factor to creating a greater world.

Morals are not defined by whether you follow a religion. The writings of Iris Murdoch were interesting because she was often questioning religions and why people follow them. Murdoch is often questioning how religion correlates with morals. While she’s not completely bashing religion, she does make many points that express that it is not necessary. She believed in and promoted “dutifulness” and other options or ideas on how to be a decent person in her own ways through other philosophies. Morality is subjective and can stem from philosophy, how a person is raised, what individuals feel is right or wrong, and even religion. Even people with such religious morals go against their faith and cause opposition to what they find right or wrong. Religion
Does environment shape moral and psychological traits? Are humans born inherently with pre-determined qualities and ways of thought? The debate of nature versus nurture, whether humans are born with a set of moral traits or whether one’s environment influences and shapes their traits, has constantly been argued, not only from a psychological standpoint, but also from a literary perspective as well. In A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving explores the relationship between environment and the development of psychological traits and personal conceptions, using both animate objects, like voice and people, and inanimate objects, such as armless objects and family influences, to prove the often powerful, yet overlooked influence of environment on human development; in the
Morality is a very subjective topic, one person’s morals may differ greatly from another. Philosophers such as Darwin and Marx took it upon themselves to make a hypothesis as to what primarily influences a person’s morality. Darwin states that the greatest influence on human morality is survival; whereas, Marx believes that the ruling class is what manipulates our morality; however, Darwin's philosophy is more accurate due the increased amount of evidence he has compared to Marx.
Most people say they know how to describe emotions. They feel them all day long, but most know not the scientific definition which states, “emotions are a neural impulse that moves an organism to action”. So technically emotions control most of an organism's actions. Some people hide their emotions or choose to not take actions . In the Herman Hesse’s book, Siddhartha, the main character, Siddhartha, expresses many emotions. In fact Hesse uses imagery to show the drastic changes in Siddhartha’s emotions and he uses techniques of diction to show Siddhartha’s emotional and mental growth.
“Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness” (Immanuel Kant). Morality is the divergence between right and wrong in every aspect of life. The history of the world has demonstrated human need to attain sovereignty. In the journey to achieve this goal, people have forgotten the gravity of the steps taken to complete an ideal and have only focused on the result. There have been several examples where detrimental actions have been taken by fortunate people to accomplish their goals. Henrietta Lacks was an African-American woman, living in the early 1900s in eastern United States. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital at the age of 31, on January 29, 1951. The doctors prescribed her treatment plan as several Radium sessions and an initial surgery to help extirpate the tumor from her body. However, in her first surgery, without obtaining consent, the doctors extracted more than just her tumor. They took samples Henrietta’s cells. Using them, scientist George Gey was able to initiate the first immortal human cell line, denominated HeLa, and help cure various diseases. However, taking advantage of Henrietta’s race and socioeconomic status the doctors never informed her family about her revolutionary cells.
One model that explains an individual’s reaction to the incest in all innocence experiment is the social intuitionist model. In moral psychology, the social intuitionist model argues that intuitions are the embodiment of a particular culture. From this perspective, it is intuition, reason, social and cultural influences that produce moral judgments within an individual (Haidt, 2001,
We find, to the contrary of this idea, that all people generally have the same moral ideologies and have a similar response to moral dilemmas. This supports the idea that morality has sprouted from our social behaviors and has guided us as a species evolutionarily. Along these same lines it is shown that society’s morals are founded on social acceptance rather than from a religious source like the bible or the Quran. This is easily demonstrable by comparing the morals and actions of those found in the bible or Quran to the actions and feelings of the populace of the day. It is not difficult to see the contradictions.
