Immanuel Kant was born April 22, 1724 and died February 12, 1804. He lived throughout his life in what we know today as Kaliningrad, Russia. He is a well-known and studied philosophical researcher, lecturer, and writer whose main interests include epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and logic. After learning of David Hume, Kant began to develop his own ideas of morals and values. Although Kant has many writings one of his greatest pieces is his, “Critique of Pure Reason” (1781). He is also well known for his moral cade, ‘The Categorical imperative’ and ‘Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals, Grounding of the Metaphysics of Morals, and Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals.’

Immanuel Kant defines duty as the recognition of a moral obligation to do what is right, 100% of the time, regardless of what could come of it. Also, Kant states that in order for an act to be wholly moral, it must be carried out by a sense of duty. This type of obligation termed by Kant is called the “categorical imperative.” The categorical imperative, according to Kant, acts as a basis to which moral requirements stem from. The categorical imperative also equates to Catholicism’s’ “golden rule” in that they both call for treating human beings as ends, not as means.
Duty, according to Kant, has four motives, self-interest, self-preservation, sympathy, and happiness. Kant goes on to...

STYLISTIC ANALYSIS OF VARIOUS TYPES OF ESSAYS
In this chapter we describe different forms and styles of essay writing. These forms and styles are used by a range of authors, including university students and professional essayists.
To characterize the peculiar features of the admission essay we would like to make stylistic analyses of an article. App. 1]
The beginning of an essay, paragraph 1, is essential to making a good impression. We have elevated the level of diction here and improved the pacing to construct a more fluid beginning, including this sentence: "The injury itself was tendonitis, an elusive malady, not easy to pin down like a simple broken bone."...

When we analyze the movie, Blood Work, simultaneously while taking into regard both Deontological and Utilitarian points of view, we notice a complex behavior in all characters involved, especially Terry McCaleb. The main character, Terry McCaleb, has the most complex behavior of all as he has the tendency to jump the fine border between Deontology and Utilitarianism multiple times back and forth.
Throughout the entire movie, McCaleb faces multiple Deontological dilemmas but the biggest and most important of all of them is his decision to self-sacrifice for the good of others. He makes a selfless decision which could have very well cost him his life. We need to take under consideration...

Idealists believe that we know objects through the way we perceive them, that they are mind-dependent. However, realists, who believe objects are mind-independent, proposed the missing explanation argument in order to disprove idealism. This theory supposes that everything is dependent on the mind; if this is true, then nothing in idealism can explain the regularities in our experiences. Although idealists and realists both provide good reasoning, neither argument by itself completely explains the perception of objects. We need to apply both views.
Internalists have made many attempts to answer the consistencies of experiences. One of their answers is that in order to believe that...

Ethics is the science of right and wrong in human action.” (Boyle, 2009, Chapter 1, Living in a World of Values). The overall purpose of this paper is to compare the similarities and differences between the three major approaches in normative ethics; virtue theory, utilitarianism, and deontological ethics. I will do this by analyzing these ethical theories and by describing them along with presenting the facts on how each theory relates to ethics and morality. It will also include a personal experience to explain the relationship...

The Ford Pinto Case
From a Utilitarian perspective
In utilitarianism, the merit or demerit of an action is entirely determined by the effect it has on everyone affected by the action. An action is deemed morally right if it leads to the greatest possible happiness for the greatest number of people. The motivation behind a choice is never considered in utilitarian theory. For reasons of verifiability, it only ever looks at the consequences of what you’ve done.
For that reason, it is an ethical theory that greatly appeals to businesses. Trying to determine how much something is going to cost (the negative effects) versus the benefits (the positive...

Occupy Wall Street Movement
November 2nd 2012
Occupy Wall Street
In the fall of 2011, in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, hundreds of protestors were evicted because they were protesting main issues such as social and economic inequality, greed, and corruption. The Occupy Wall Street slogan, “We are the 99%”, addresses the inequality income and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. The protesters have put their faith in the last seemingly credible force in the world: each other. The movement is really about the balance of give and take of Wall Street, how there are people who make things to add to the distribution of goods in...

Ethics Essay - Rights to a child. 20th January
AO1: Explain how a follower of Kantian ethics might approach the issues surrounding the right to a child.
Immanuel Kant was a respected ethicist of the 18th Century. He is known mostly for his works on the ‘Groundwork of metaphysics of morals’ and it is within this work Kant proposes the Categorical Imperative, an absolute, deontological, objective and secular approach to making moral decisions. Kant’s theory is based on the principal that the only thing which is truly good is a good will or duty. He continues to say that we must endeavour to use our...

Assignment 1: Commercialization of Organ Transplants
Professor Kenneth Pino
I’ve recently done research regarding the commercialization of Organ Transplants. I’ve found many arguments for and against this subject. Some individuals find the act to be unethical, and other’s think it will save lives. The problem is that a new policy was proposed to allow sale of organs by consenting individuals to patients in need and to medical institutions. When it comes to the subject of human organs, there are a few ethical standards to consider. There are religious standards, social norms, ethical code, morals, and policies in which we should follow. Critics...

Case #1: Energy Cooperative Ethical Problems

THREE ETHICAL APPROACHES BASED ON VIRTUE, DUTY AND CONSEQUENCE
Three ethical approaches have evolved as the focus of those who study moral philosophy: virtue ethics, duty ethics and consequential ethics. Virtue ethics, associating ethics with personal habits, is associated with Aristotle. Duty ethics is associated with religious beliefs, although Kant tried to create a system of duties independent of belief in God. Consequential ethics is associated with the quest for rationalism during the Enlightenment, and especially with the Utilitarians.
Plato and especially later Aristotle described moral behavior as “what the moral or virtuous person does.” The virtuous person...

Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Socrates: Man of Virtue (470-399 B.C.E.) Socrates proposed the theory of value in which there are two sorts of good: virtue and happiness. Both are unconditional goods. But happiness is a "self-generated" good in that it "derives its value strictly from its inherent properties;" whereas virtue is an "other-generated" good in that it derives its value from happiness, precisely from its conduciveness to happiness.
Virtue is an instinct in all humanity which can be aroused through self-examination. This universal truth is accessible to everyone who thinks and question. Socrates assumes that any...

Utilitarianism and Kant’s Categorical Imperative
The issues of morality are most clearly expressed through examples of different methods of analyzing a situation. The case of Holmes, an officer in charge of a sinking ship, shows the striking differences between philosopher Immanuel Kant’s beliefs and those of the Utilitarians. After Holmes’ ship sinks, there are twenty passengers in a lifeboat that is only meant to hold fourteen people. There was no time to send out a signal for help before the ship sank, so no rescue is guaranteed and the nearest land is fifteen hundred miles away. Holmes decides to force the wounded passengers and those wearing life jackets off of the lifeboat and...

Business ethics has become a key component in our economic relations and trade industry internationally. Ethics are defined as “how human beings should properly live their lives” (Hartman, DesJardins, & MacDonald, 2014, p. 11).

The approach to business ethics is diverse and has many interpretations as you travel around the world, just as there are different theories to define these approaches.

Is it Ethically Right to use Bluffing in the Business World?
As businesses flourish from record sales of new products and, “upgrades,” the path to profit is becoming more and more questioned regarding their ethical standards. While some businesses look to make the most profit without a worry about deception and trickery, others tend to stick with honesty and sincerity. Every day people are centered on ethical practice involving resumes, job interviews, business deals, psychological tests, etc. One of the main issues that raise concerns is if bluffing in business to get ahead is ethically right or wrong.

I wanted to approach both Kantianism vs. Utilitarianism for those who are not students of ethics words like utilitarianism and Kantianism may sound little foreign but for those are trying to tackle the world of ethics then these two represent important viewpoints. There are many similarities between utilitarianism and Kantianism but some can confuse some people. However, there are important differences between the two philosophies that I will try to explain.
In Utilitarianism this philosophy believes that consequences of action are responsible for people judging that action as morally right or wrong. Thus, a believer of utilitarianism would say that the outcomes of the actions that is...

Theories of Ethics
Consequentialism sees the rightness or wrongness of an action in terms of the consequences brought about by that action.
The most common form of consequentialism is utilitarianism. Utilitarianism holds that one should act so as to do the greatest good for the greatest number. The good as defined by J.S. Mill would be the presence of pleasure and the absence of pain. Utilitarians are concerned with the aggregate happiness of all beings capable of experiencing pleasure or pain including nonhuman animals. They consider the principle of utility to be the act, which produces the greatest balance of good over evil. Utilitarians...

Price fixing, anti-competitive behavior, fraud, deceptive advertising, and insider trading are but a few of the many questionable tactics found in the quivers of corporate moguls and their charges. Corporations and their activities have been fair game for...

Artistic Themes from Ancient Cultures: Greece and Rome
In this paper Christian suffering through religious expression is discussed as it pertains to ancient cultures through early Greek and Roman times. Culture differences between Romans and Greeks are very different in many ways, but can be very similar as well. Romans held their practical and traditional morality in high esteem, and appeared over confident in their military, ability to organize.
Looking at “culture” Romans usually seem obsessed with humanities in the form of music, dance, theater, art, literature and philosophy. In...

G.I. Joe has been a brand in the market for toys since its launch in 1964 with $3 billion in sales over the last 20 years, with 16% of the market share. Despite the brands success the GI Joe is positioned as a physical product, as appose to an all-encompassing brand and the toy market has volatile sales depending upon trends created by consumer demand. Hasbro is now challenged to take the G.I. Joe brand to the next level and market it in such a way that will allow the brand continues to thrive while preserving the brands legacy.
One major issue facing G.I. Joe besides their competitor Barbie (Mattel) is that the industry has changed drastically in the last decade. The target customer for...

African American music changed drastically during the film Dreamgirls. The film portrayed how African American music was centered on the feelings and emotions of the artist, with references to religion as well. R&B star Jimmy "Thunder" Early mentions early in the film that if is a part of a song, then the song must have some “soul.” This was a belief of African American artists at the time, which is the reason why the artists were only deemed successful within the African American community. Also, sex appeal was not deemed as necessary for the success of music in the African American community because music was viewed as a form of expression, not just a product to make music.

So knowing how to clean up after an oil spill is important because if we didn’t then the animals in the sea would die, when they die there won’t be any sea food and the sea food that was there would be filled with oil, dirt, and slime. Who would want to eat food that has oil dirt and slime on it? In the past few centuries, there has been devastating oil spills, like...

Negotiation is a fact of everyday life and each day in one form or another we are negotiating something.
In both our personal and professional day-to-day life we are negotiating, and what is to be noted is that most of the times we are not even aware of it.
Every day we are negotiating at work, starting with the job offer details and later on for any development opportunities, salary increases, training support, taking ownership of new tasks or processes or simply by handling work- related conflicts.
In the same way, our personal life is a result of our constant negotiation skills and this translates into obtaining better loan rates, longer payment terms, reassigning household tasks,...

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise.

1) What could account for the reversal against expectation?
Answer: size of the mainland pool of species, lack of differences in dispersal ability among the mainland species, and competition between species.
2) Why aren’t all species equal in the larger context?
Answer: Some species live in much greater jeopardy of extinction than others. The rare species, the highly specialized species, the less competitive species, and the species having low aptitude for dispersal and colonization, all these species might be missing from a reserve system if the reserves were numerous but small.
3) Why should the number of extinctions be inversely related to reverse size?

Is asexuality a lack of sexual orientation and analogous to other sexual orientations and identities?
One of the most inescapable social assumptions is that all humans possess sexual desire (Cole, 1993; 192). A related assumption is that sexuality is not only something one does, but an identity or something one is (Weeks, 1986; Foucault, 1978, cited in Scherrer, 2008; 621).
Most inquiries into asexuality have approached it as either behaviour (lack of sexual acts) or a lack of desire for sexual acts. However, Scherrer argues that the complexity and variability of asexuality also encompasses those who are interested in romantic attachment but with limited or no physical contact,...

The view that working class children cultural deprivation is the reason of their underachievement can be very rightly true. Cultural deprivation is the lack of certain rules of behavior in social situations, values, belief that something is a worthwhile, attitude and skills these are all of what society calls “normal”. Working class children are less likely to succeed in life because they are less likely to be found in nursery schools, less likely to go to university and more likely to be poor readers when they start school, more likely to be in lower sets and streams in secondary school, more likely to leave school early, more likely to underachieve at GCSEs and a level, more likely to be...

No matter whether the discourse is of corporate social responsibility or of sustainability there exists a high degree of scepticism about the reality of corporate activity. Accusations of greenwashing – presenting a false picture – abound.
We argue that this is a legacy of past behaviour when such an accusation could reasonably be made about many organisations. Our argument is the CSR is a developmental process and changes as organisations mature in their behaviour and attitude towards both their stakeholders and their ideas concerning social responsibility. Of course we also acknowledge that there is a growing body of evidence to show that social responsibility behaviour becomes reflected...
