Ethics

| April 12, 2016

1-4. For #3, be sure to answer each part: a, b, and c
Read the following description of a moral theory and answer the questions that follow.
The Ethics of love Theory.
According to the ethics of love theory, what makes an action right is that it is based on love toward others. Love is the only universal moral good. In any situation where a moral choice must be made. This theory says that we must ask ourselves: “which action would demonstrate the greatest degree of love for others, everyone considered?” So in this theory, action that demonstrate love (such as respecting others, telling the truth, treating people equally, caring for them, protecting them from harm) would always be preferred over actions that do not demonstrate love (discriminating against persons, lying to them, harming them, stealing from them, ignoring them if they ask for help). Also. Actions that demonstrate great love (such as risking your life to save theirs) would be preferred over those that exhibit only small degrees of love (such as being courteous).
1. Is this theory consistent with our considered moral judgments? Is it consistent with our judgments regarding the punishment of criminals? Acts of war? Providing for one’s family as opposed to providing for all persons equally? If the theory conflicts with our considered moral judgments, provide an example demonstrating the conflict.

2. Is this theory consistent with our experience of the moral life? According to this theory, are moral judgments possible? Can we have moral disagreements? Can we ever act immorally?
3. Is this theory workable? Does it help you make moral decision in these situation?
A. Your beloved mother has a terminal illness which causes her unimaginable pain, and she begs you to kill her.
B. Your promise to buy your beloved spouse a car, but a half dozen homeless people beg you to give them the money that you had set aside for the car.
C. You are a doctor who must decide which of one hundred patients should receive a lifesaving organ transplant. You can choose only one, though you love all of them. Some are elderly: some, in great pain; some, very young; and some, Nobel laureates.

Economic Analysis & Terminology

Two partners own together a small landscaping business in North Carolina, called Summer Lawn Care. They have been specializing in summer grass seeding, installation, and maintenance. Recently, the partners acquired special technology and know-how for winter grass installations and maintenance. They also added a tree cutting service as recent storms in the area had caused demand for this service to soar. One of the partners insists that the name of the business should change to Lawn and Tree Care, so that it better reflects the range of services and, thus, generates more customer interest, and thus contracts. The second partner wants to keep the old name and argues, “We have already paid for business cards, vehicle paint, signage, and ads in Yellow Pages”. Evaluate the arguments of the two partners. Explain and illustrate their points by identifying the relevant and irrelevant costs for this decision.

In 300 words or more, please, provide your response to the above discussion question. Identify all the costs in the decision process, including explicit costs, implicit costs and sunk costs.

Holocaust

| April 12, 2016

Christopher Browning’s Ordinary Men, has been criticised for excusing the conduct of Germans who participated directly in killing of Jews during the Holocaust. Do you think that this criticism is justified? If he is not excusing the policemen’s conduct, what is he trying to do in his book? Does this criticism apply to the whole historical approach to the Holocaust and genocide? Explain your answer carefully. 4 full pages, no abstract. Based on the reading of Browning, paper is judged based on persuasiveness of argument and use of evidence from the READING to back up the argument.
You can cite sources from the readings in parentheses, like this: (Beller, 28).
These are our assigned readings, only use 3, and that is necessary. For my paper, Browning’s Ordinary Men is most applicable.
