Morality Essay Examples

To torture or not to torture prisoners

...  I disagree with a member who advocates that Kantian duty-based ethics should be used in defining the morality of torture for the prisoners. According to this theory, the right reason defines the morality of any action. Accordingly, right reason may vary among individuals. While some may find it rightful to subject a prisoner on torture, others may feel otherwise. In addition, some people may torture prisoners based on their feelings and not based on the requirements of the la...

A Defense Of Ethical Relativism

...In conclusion, I agree with Benedict argument of ethical relativism where she holds that people change their opinions and principles depending on the majority rule.

Ethics, Euthanasia and Canadian Law. Utilitarianism Theory, Morality

...According to Perez and Moore (2012), people are often distinguished on their level of morality, when faced with a moral dilemma; a moral person usually calculates the amount of happiness that his or her actions will cause.

Latimer’s sentence received a lot of uproar from the public; ...

Business Ethics: Ethical Decision Making and Cases

... From my person point of view it was unethical for the company to pay out $100 to Ralph. This is because of the company’s serious side effects to the environment. If the company had evaded paying Ralph $100, EPA would have takes the initiative to shutdown and imposes fine to the pulp industry. The fine would have compensated the long time the industry has been polluting the environment, more so for the pulp industry to repair and replace outdated equipment. I also thing the industry...

Ethics. Cultural relativism and Divine command theory

... Even though deontology and utilitarianism are categorised as “ethics of conduct,” they differ in their ethical theory. Deontology indorses an action based on a moral law or code, while for utilitarianism an action that gives the best consequences or happiness to the action is right.

Virtue ethics should be the ethical motiv...

Lord of the Flies (Men are inherently evil)

...Despite being first published fifty years ago, Lord of the Flies is still studied and read to this day as it shows that it is brutality of the second world war. Golding subtly passes through his message that what happened in Germany could occur anywhere and that sometimes, it is necessary to be evil.

Obedience

...One of the most prominent studies of obedience in the study of psychology was performed by Stanley Milgram. The intent of this study was to research how far individuals would go in obeying a command while it involved hurting someone. Milgram’s curiosity to see how normal individuals could be influenced by enormity seems to be an influence for this study. My initial reaction to Milgram’s study video was pure disgust. In my opinion, he treated his participants like animals. Due to his own fasc...

BACP Ethical Framework Focus

...There are times I will say things in class, or to colleagues in the agency that represent me as an individual, rather than as a professional. I think the gap between these two ‘sides’ is getting smaller as a result of my personal therapy, and just getting older, but there are still times when I feel the need to censor my views. Unfortunately, this is often retrospectively! I believe I can competently demonstrate professional standards in my therapeutic work, but there is still a side of me t...

Advantages and Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence

...On the other hand, the establishment of ethics, moral values and standards is difficult when humans are dominated by machines. Any amount of automation cannot create intelligence; it is only a human feature. No machine can show dedication or emotion s at work and we as human beings cannot live in a world that is only surrounded by machines.

Literary Analysis of Dorian Gray

...Oscar Wilde was known to be a man that challenged the conventions of Victorian society. He never goes into detail about the unscrupulous things that Dorian does throughout the text, and this literary decision spares the readers of sensibilities but also illustrates Dorian’s lack of cognizance. If anything, the protagonist simply records life, rather than earnestly feeling anything at all. Given that he is the opposite of a rotting corpse, Dorian Gray still exists as a zombie: a creature lackin...

Analysis of an Ethical Dilemma

...Furthermore, the Courts would likely have to rely on a narrative approach to ethical decision making. Purtilo and Doherty (2011) define the narrative approach as information told through stories that, as a result, affect the human experience.

Consequently, this is the first step in many ethical theories as well as Purtilo and ...

My Biggest Pet Peeves

...The cellphone is a big invention at this time; people can use cellphones for many purposes besides talking with others. My pet peeve is about people who use a cellphone where or when it is not supposed to be used because it is very rude and disrespectful.

Truth or Lie

...Clearly, lying is an issue worth examining, as many people believe it is a bigger problem in today’s world than it has ever been.

Overall, I have come...

Now those are tough morals to follow! We can clearly see that morals and ethics though seemingly similar are in fact quite di...

He believed that the ones who began the mental and spiritual decapitations of others are truly the ones who were unable to control their passions and were very ill willed.

He believed that an immoralist is an ideal human being, because they are the one...

The Abolition of Man Cs Lewis Review
