Beatty giving philosophy and sociology a bad connotation, so that Montag is persuaded not to rebel, and society is not in the wrong. Beatty, still trying to convince Montag that what firemen do is good and that you don’t want to be a misfit and think otherwise. He explains to Montag that “If you don 't want a man unhappy politically, don 't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none" (Bradbury 58).

On the other hand, Antigone knows that the gods are not prideful. This legitimizes the wishes of the gods because their power does not come from a place of excessive confidence. Therefore, Antigone is threatened by the gods and is determined to please them, and not
As Dalai Lama once said, “Happiness is not something really made. It comes from your own actions.” Russell writes “the happy life’’ from the point of view of a hedonist and a moralist. He believes that the good life is similar to the happy life. Although many people have different versions of what makes them happy, the principle is still the same- you must do good in the world and give back to the community. Russell agrees exactly this- he wants people to help the community and their loved ones but advises to not lose their happiness as a result of it.
Benjamin believed that one should not overpay for his wants but rather one should be focused on doing good. In the letter entitled “The Whistle”, the idealism of not indulging in luxuries is a central theme. There is one parable that the author uses constantly to strengthen the theme.

God is not accessible to man to ask which religion is the truth. Nathan uses the judge in the parable to explain that each religion should prove its truth through kindness and absolute love to all.

Furthermore, defenders of the divine command theory like Alston have faced the Euthyphro dilemma by says that although God’s commands make right actions right, God is morally perfect and hence would never issue unjust or immoral commandments. On their eyes, God’s nature is the standard of moral goodness, and God’s commands or words are the origin of all obligation and kindness. (Jeremy Koons, n.d.) One well-known objection to divine will/divine command moral theories is that they commit us to the view that God’s will is arbitrary, and the arbitrary will of God is not a plausible basis for morality.

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
As David Jasper explains, “There is a contrasting assumption that, by structuring one's life upon simple 'orthodox' religious formulations, society and the self appear to be self-creating and self-sustaining, paying lip-service to an imagined deity by a suitably respectable code of conduct.” (Jasper) Coleridge hopes to help people understand that they must pay for their sins, and that if they are willing to do so, they will be able to live with their Father again. We all hope for that love, but it cannot come with pain first. And with the pain, we must pay the
