That if you do good for others, good will come to you. It points out the ideology that you should do things and not expect anything in return. It also helps in isolating one ideology of how one obtains true happiness. I support the morals of this commercial and can agree that happiness can come from going about doing good to those around us and the world that we live
Two ethical theories in this course which I have chosen to discuss comprehensively are utilitarianism and Kantian moral theory. Utilitarianism is an ethical theory whose principal architects were Jeremy Bentham(1748-1832) and John Stuart Mill (1806-1873). It derives it 's name from utility, which means usefulness.The utilitarian says that an act is right (moral) if it is useful in “bringing about a desirable or good end." It has been more characteristically stated, however, as "Everyone should perform that act or follow that moral rule that will bring about the greatest good (or happiness) for everyone concerned. (Thiroux & Krasemann, 2009)The reason for mentioning both acting and following rules is that utilitarianism generally is found in two main forms: Act Utilitarian and Rule utilitarian.
Mill presents an argument for the value of utilitarianism as a moral theory. He suggests that happiness should be the criterion of morality. The morality of an action should be judged based on the consequences produced because if the action is morally right, it produces the most good for everyone involved. Mills also follows on and suggests that happiness is the sole desire of human life. We thrive to achieve the utmost desire and happiness while avoiding actions that result in pain and sadness.
Utilitarianism is a popular type of consequentialism, rule utilitarianism is a form of utilitarianism. Utilitarians think that happiness is the measure to judge the consequences, whether the action is right or wrong depends almost entirely on the good or bad consequences. Rule utilitarianism argues that if you obey the rules it will benefit the larger number of sentinel beings. more absolutist then relative, based on past experience. Rules generally promote the greater good, it is intended to guide us to make the best decisions for what needs to be done.
It states that the good consequences for the individual has greater ability as compared with the consequences placed upon others. In addition, actions could be considered as ethical for the individual whoever is taking the action which is benefited, while any advantage or disadvantage to the well-being of others is a secondary effect and not as important as the consequences for the individual. The similarity between act utilitarianism and ethical egoism are both contained large number of sub-theories within each branch which are the value placed between the individual and others. Both ethical egoism and act utilitarianism are allowing an individual to put himself or herself first in determining the right action to take in a particular situation whether the particular action is right or wrong. This is different from pure selflessness which states that only working for the benefit of others is morally valuable.
Many a time the management is faced with a dilemma when making decisions. In principle, decisions must be ethical to prevent negative setbacks to organizations and managers. Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University through Velasquez et al (2009), highlights the process of ethical decision-making; i) Recognition of ethical issues during choice making between alternatives. ii) Getting the facts about the case iii) Evaluation of alternative actions so that the choice will produce the best benefits and least harm, the choice will respect the rights of stakeholders and the option must treat the involved parties proportionately or equally. This is a utilitarian-rights-justice approach.
Value-expressive function: states that consumers base their attitudes regarding a product on self-concept or central values, given the strong association between products and the social identity humans feel with their ownership. It enforces basic values and reinforces
Ethical theories help us define good, bad, right and wrong. They help us understand why a decision, thing or thought is good, bad, right or wrong. We can approach these ethical theories by trying to understand them and then analysing the extent to which the theory is beneficial, we can approach them by thinking about the cons and loopholes that the theory has. Let’s look at some ethical theories like Utilitarianism, The categorical Imperative, Virtue Ethics, and Ethical Egoism. Utilitarianism
To be effective a culture must not only be efficient, but appropriate to the needs of the business, company and employees. On the other hand, Job satisfaction can be understood as a response which cannot be seen but inferred to a situation. Job satisfaction shows our attitude towards the job and is associated with the outcomes and expectations. According to Locke (1991),
