Different from consequentialism, people who tend to have the mind set of a deontologist believe that you should do your ethical duty, regardless of the outcome. Immanuel Kant designed ‘The Categorical Imperative’ theory which was associated with the fact that it was commanding us to practice our morals and desires in a specific way which was exercised through two rules. Kamm (2000) claims that these components were to ‘(1) treat persons as ends in themselves and (2) do not treat them as mere means’. Kamm is basically suggesting that we seek happiness of others, as that is morally right, however fulfill capacities of one’s own intellect. From following both of these we arrive at an imperative and it is categorical.
Caroline Bird discusses, in “College is a waste of Time and Money,” her opinion on the recurring failure of education in universities. Bird alleges that college is not for everyone, but society forces high school graduates to go to college. College is believed to be the ticket to a successful career, however it some cases it is a waste of time because some classes are worthless. Those who actually decide to go to college, do so because it is a safe haven and it is payed for by parents. It is at the end a waste of time and money, according to Caroline Bird.
After the case closed, the defendant will need to pay all the cost if the plaintiff wins the case, including victim’s lost, the court costs, and bar fees. Nowadays, many victims choose to file a suit on some insignificant cases because they think that they can win the case and gain money from it. However, each lawsuit requires not only money to hire a conscientious lawyer, but also time and efforts. To me, with efforts and high expenses, the money that the plaintiff wins afterwards does not worth
Although cheating in sports is different then cheating in school, they both have the same ending consequence. The consequence is that someone will never reach their full capability of success by cheating. Athletes will continuously end up being caught taking performance enhancements and students at universities will be caught plagiarizing or cheating in some other way. These people might have success and fame for a short amount of time, but it will never last. All the work and time they have put in to be the best they can be will all vanish just by making the mistake to cheat not only others, but

Of course people have different values, morals, opinions, views, etc. All of the mentioned are truths, but a different kind than your average dictionary definition. These truths are called “personal truth” truths that only apply to or are true to and for that person. According to Martin Alberto, who studied philosophy at the University of Toronto, personal truths, “cannot be just likes and dislikes, it has to be something more serious and lasting, based on two things: experience and long reflection; something that becomes like a second nature, not likely to be abandoned or changed to something else… [they are] derive[d] from, and are entrenched in, one's character. Hence a disposition to act in a certain way in given circumstances.
(Hunter, 2001, p.306) There is no exception for rational individuals in the world to escape from the law of categorical imperative. The presentation of categorical imperative is somehow like a test of morality (Hunter, 2001, p.306), rather than just a moral concept. Moral maxim is of vital necessity in the determination of morality for an action. From Kant’s view, an action can be treated as moral when it is motivated by one’s maxim, while it also suits the universal law. (Hunter, 2001, p.306) Therefore, it can be concluded that moral maxim is the standard of deciding whether an action is moral or not.
According to Rand Observation-Based Principle of Rights Theory (2011), he reasoned that man’s life is the standard of moral value, because each person should act to sustain and further his own life. 1.3.4 Justice Theory: Rawls 's theory of justice (2005), revolves around the adaptation of two fundamental principles of justice which in turn, guarantees a just and morally acceptable society. 1.4 Evaluation of Alice’s decision alternatively Theories, Laws, and organizational policies are often involved in complex cases, and Alice should understand that social workers are often legally obligated to take a particular course of action. Allen and Friedman (2010) suggest that, it is also
Procrastination is delaying or putting tasks behind. This effects many people especially college students. We tend to procrastinate which leads to a bad outcome in the future. When a task is due we tend to leave it behind and we don’t realize the causes and effects to this which is why I will explain the effects and outcomes to procrastination.
