Moral Program

...A Moral Program for Myself as a Person and Professional A Moral Program for Myself as a Person and Professional Education is the key pillar of the modern world. Through education, we achieve a personal sensation of achievement and sole satisfaction. However, what lessons do we draw from the classes and lessons that we attend? In addition, are there ways in which we can apply the knowledge and the information we learn from the class and use it to shape our personal and professional lives? Throughout the eight weeks that I have enrolled in philosophy 415, I have pondered how I will use the information I learn and the knowledge I gain to better myself. In this regard, I need to better myself in both my personal and professional capacities. Nevertheless, in order to attain this betterment, I need to come up with a moral program for my personal and professional lives. Whether it is applying the ethical principles of Aristotle, Kant and Mill, or combating moral illiteracy within my department, I plan to use my newfound information to its greatest potential. Therefore, this article first elucidates on the moral program that I would implement in my professional life as a nurse. Consequently, the second part is on a program fitted for my personal life as a single mother to a four-year-old child. Out of all the philosophers that we studied during the course, Aristotle's virtue ethics is the most suitable theory for my profession. According to Solomon......

Aquinas Cosmological Argument

...the existence of God working from the undeniable fact that the universe exists. He formulated his argument in three ways. His first formulation of the Cosmological argument was the argument from motion. He argued that everything in the universe is in a state of constant motion and change. He saw change as the motion of an object turning from a state of potentiality into a state of actuality and thought that something must cause the object to change between these states. He goes on to say there must have once been something that performed the function of an unmoved mover; for were this not the case there could be nothing to set all other objects in the universe into their courses of motion and change. Therefore Aquinas concludes that this unmoved mover is what everyone else refers to as God. Aquinas second formulation uses the argument from cause. He argued that everything in the universe has an efficient cause, nothing is its own cause. Therefore everything is caused by something else. However there cannot be an infinite regression of causes because if there were no First Cause which was a sufficient cause of itself in itself then there could have been no following causes, and nothing would exist today. Because the universe does exist we must therefore accept the existence of an uncaused cause and this cause is God. Aquinas third formulation uses the argument from contingency. He argues everything we see in the universe exists contingently; it can either exist or not......

...Arriving at a moral judgment is not a straightforward or linear process in which ethical theories are simply applied to cases. Instead it is a process in which the formulation of the moral problem, the formulation of possible “solutions”, and the ethical judging of these solutions go hand in hand. This messy character of moral problems, however, does not rule out a systematic approach. In this article, we describe a systematic approach to problem solving that does justice to the complex nature of moral problems and ethical judgment: the ethical cycle. Our goal is to provide a structured and disciplined method of addressing moral problems, which helps to guide a sound analysis of these problems. We will illustrate the usefulness of this cycle with an example. Further, we will discuss two general issues in applied ethics in relation to the proposed ethical cycle: the role of ethical theories and the place of individual judgment versus collective deliberation. The start of the ethical cycle is the formulation of a moral problem.A specialcase of a moral problem is the moral dilemma.There are two positive moral norms that can not be fully realized at the same time . Instead one action only relizes one moral value while another action realizes the other moral value.But in real life there are often for actions.So in the ethical cycle we will mainly just consider basic moral problems. A good moral question , problem statement must meet three conditions.It must clearly state what the...

...Utilitarianism Utilitarianism is a teleological form of ethics which promotes the action which will achieve the greatest net total happiness (Barnes, 1971). This action is usually identified through a consequential theory analysis – by identifying stakeholders, and their relevant utility payoffs from each action available. Whichever action results in the greatest net happiness, is the action that should be taken (Barnes, 1971). Samantha is the first stakeholder identified from the case. Samantha’s life and general well-being, along with her life-savings invested in the business are at stake, depending on Nathan’s decision. If Nathan is to tell Samantha of the unethical actions of Beth, Beth will be sacked and will face even greater financial hardship, thus Beth is also a key stakeholder. The customers are also stakeholders. If Nathan does not tell Samantha, prices will increase – negatively impacting customers. The final key stakeholder identified is Nathan. If Samantha finds that Beth has been stealing, and Nathan did not report this - Samantha will lose trust in Nathan and he will be considered a disloyal employee. The consequential analysis has been displayed in the table below, listing the stakeholders and their consequential payoffs if Nathan chooses to tell, or not tell Samantha of Beth’s wrong-doing. Each unit represents one utility point on a scale of -10 to 10 units of happiness. Through the consequential analysis of the stakeholders identified, and their......

It may hardly notice behind-the-scene of activities like management of personnel affairs, records-keeping, or the dissemination of official information, orders, instructions as these have been relegated to the background.

Is Business Strategy a Mixture of Luck and Judgement, Opportunities and Design, or More of an Art Than a Science?

...Abstract Firms or companies today face a broad array of risks, problems and issues internal to them and external factors relative to increased international competition due to globalisation. Thus, strategic management is an activity necessary to be undertaken by firms who want to sustain their existence in today’s highly competitive environment. Firms need to develop strategies as they are managements’ game plan for growing the business, staking out a market position, attracting and pleasing customers, competing successfully, conducting operations, and achieving targeted objectives. Strategic management is the set of managerial decisions and actions that determines the long-run performance of a firm.

An Exposition of Kant’s, Arendt’s, and Mill’s Moral Philosophy

...such as Hannah Arendt discuss Kant’s moral philosophy. In her case study: “The Accused and Duties of a Law-Abiding Citizen”, Arendt examines how Adolf Eichmann’s actions conformed to Kant’s moral precepts but also how they ran of afoul to his conception of duty. In contrast, John Stuart Mill adopts a teleological view of moral philosophy. He exposes his view of consequentialism and utilitarianism to argue that an action is morally right only to the extent that it maximizes the aggregate happiness of all parties involved regardless of the motive. In the present paper, I will expose Kant’s moral precepts and the importance of duty in his Deontological principles. Then, I will evaluate Arendt’s report on Adolf Eichmann to analyze the ways in which his actions were in accordance to or against Kant’s moral philosophy. I will conclude my discussion with an evaluation of Mill’s approach to morality in order to examine the differences between his teleological philosophy and Kant’s ethical principles. Kant’s moral philosophy is based on the categorical imperative (CI), good will, and duty. According to the CI, it is an absolute necessity, a command that humans should accord with universalizable maxims to treat people as ends in themselves and exercise their will without any concerns about the consequences or conditions of their actions. This concept can also be expressed in systematic terms by the two following formulations. The first form of the categorical imperative prescribes......

Seminar on Mathematics Technology

...Philosophy of Science (All Science, not just social science)   During the time of the ancient Greeks—that is, Socrates and Plato, but before them and after them as well, the study of “philosophy” (Greek for “love of wisdom”) began.  At that time, philosophy included both the natural and physical sciences as well what we know as philosophy today.  The development of philosophy created a tension between philosophy, science, and religion.  Remember that Socrates was put to death for allegedly questioning the existence of the official state-worshiped gods.   This tension between philosophy, science and religion continued through the 1400’s and 1500’s when the European “Enlightenment” emphasized the concept that both “rational thought” and “science” was separate from religion. Today, they are still generally in tension.  Whether these methods of gaining knowledge are consistent or not is constantly debated among scientists, theologians, and philosophers.  Science=observation of the physical universe which includes (beginning in the late 1800’s) the study of human behavior using our five senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell); Religion=the study of the “divine” (i.e., god, however a person conceives of that notion, and it’s implications) Philosophy=the study of questions unanswerable by science through the use of “reason” (rational thought) alone.   Thus, there are 4 different philosophical views on how humans can obtain knowledge:                 1. mysticism/divine......

Case: Deontologist, Utilitarian And Virtue Ethics

...Categorical imperative could be described in many different ways. Imperative is defined as a command and the command is categorical due to the fact that we can’t take it or leave it. There are three formulations of categorical imperative. The three formulations are the formula of universal law, the formula of the end itself and the formula of autonomy. The formula of universal law is that you should only act as a maxim and it should become a universal law at the same time. This means that every action that we do should be considered. It should be considered because the action could be acceptable or not. The formula of the end itself is that you should act in a way that you always treat humanity never as a merely mean but as an end itself. In other words, we should not use people for our own benefit. We should value people for who they are and not for what they could provide for us. You should treat people as an end and respect their rationality and autonomy. If you treat someone as a mere means, you’re disrespecting the person’s rationality and autonomy. The formula of autonomy is to act in a way that you could give a universal law through your...
