Question 1. After watching the two videos for this week. I do support Aristotle’s belief that there is an appropriate emotion to an experience. In reference to the Sherrice Iverson case, I would say that the appropriate emotion via virtue would be disgust or outrage. Upon discovering that someone felt “joy” or “excitement” upon hearing what happened to her, I would say that they were suffering ill thoughts as a result of their vice or possible negative character trait, if other factors add up. As our textbook states “A person who is cruel has a tendency or disposition to intentionally cause people to suffer, to want people to suffer, and to feel pleasure from causing suffering.” (P.116) Question 2. With regards to the thought-experiment, I

Man is the only living thing that has done evil acts for their own purpose of pleasure and to gain power over others. Man is the only one that commits acts of torture. He is the only one that uses pain as a method of punishment. Not only do men use pain as punishment but they also use it to gain an advantage over others. According to Mark Twain’s satirical essay, “The Lowest Animal”, he expresses “Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel.
Discrimination and harassment are serious problems in the workplace today. People are discriminated against and harassed about their sex, religion, race, weight, handicap, etc. For me, these issues are very unethical, and that’s all there is to it. Really, what does a person or a business gain from committing these selfish acts towards others? I guess a laugh here and there from people listening in on the harassment of a co-worker.
While arguably one of the defining psychological studies of the 20th Century, the research was not without flaws. Almost immediately the study became a subject for debate amongst psychologists who argued that the research was both ethically flawed and its lack of diversity meant it could not be generalized. Ethically, a significant critique of the experiment is that the participants actually believed they were administering serious harm to a real person, completely unaware that the learner was in fact acting. Although Milgram argued that the illusion was a necessary part of the experiment to study the participants’ reaction, they were exposed to a highly stressful situation. Many were visibly distraught throughout the duration of the test
Visual Evidence for the Murder Trial of Andrea Yates The children could hear the terrifying screams from their siblings in the bathroom. One by one all five entered the bathroom where their mother waited for them, unfortunately not a single one would make it out alive. Within six months of this heinous crime Andrea Yates the mother of these five children was put on trial.
The experimenter betrayed the participants who were made to believe that they were imposing pain on the learners and were put on stress. Some teachers even believed that they have hurt or killed the learner causing a lot of stress. Milgram also lied about the experiments, informing his participants that the purpose of the experiment was to study about the effects of punishment on learning; however the real purpose of the experiment was to measure the obedience. Even though the participants were not informed after the experiment was over, opponents believed that it was not enough because it did not stop the psychological damage that have affected the
Emotions are feelings that come naturally to a person. These feelings may come from a significant event, a sudden change in mood, or even the actions of an important person. In William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, Brutus is a leading figure who induces an incredible sense of emotion in not just the citizens of Rome but also the audience. As the defining feature of a tragic hero is to inspire catharsis, Brutus definitively plays the role of the tragic hero in the play. Brutus is the true tragic hero as he evoked a great deal of emotion in the audience through an extremely impactful peripeteia, a wide extent of suffering, and a significant anagnorisis.
Just because Curley doesn’t have a wonderful life or always looking for his wife or even just because he likes to tease people he shouldn’t use cruelty against others just for his satisfaction and it’s okay for him. As well as Carlson who really wants to kill Candy’s dog just because he’s old and smelly. Cruelty shouldn’t just be used because it feels right for them. How can people be simply cruel? A character who I think is simply cruel in general is Curley since he is always complaining about everything and always asking around for his wife who is simply always disappearing.
A good reasoning is a reasoning that leads to certain, true and valid conclusions. There are two kinds of reasoning, inductive and deductive reasoning. Both processes include the process of finding a conclusion from multiple premises although the way of approach may differ. Deductive reasoning uses general premises to make a specific conclusion; inductive reasoning uses specific premises to make a generalized conclusion. The two types of reasoning can be influenced by emotion in a different manner because of their different process to yield a conclusion.
The conventions of tragedy and comedy, such as the tragedy in Oedipus Rex and the comedy in The Taming of the Shrew, can shape the way the play is developed. Thorough analysis can reveal these dramas to be discussions of human experience. As Laurence Olivier once said: “The office of drama is to exercise, possibly exhaust, human emotions. The purpose of comedy is to tickle those emotions into an expression of light relief; of tragedy, to wound them and bring relief of tears. Disgust and terror are the other points of the compass.”
