7 Course questions requiring 1-2 paragraphs each. References provided, please note the reference with each answer.

  1. In Ethics: What is Right? It is mentioned that one “accusation often leveled against the field of philosophy in general is that the questions it addresses are esoteric and abstract, too focused on hypotheticals and not on the everyday lives of everyday people.” How would you answer this accusation using applied ethics?
  2. Define ethics, and describe how it applies to in daily living?
  3. Bertrand Russell writes “An ethical principle may be judged by the kind of emotion that causes it to be welcomed. By this test, it will be found that a great many generally recognized principles are not so respectable as they seem.” Explain in your own words what he means by this and provide an example of an ethical principle that passes this test, and one that fails. Explain why.
  4. Choose the better option for you between ethical pluralism and ethical monism. Explain at least one thing you gain by your choice. Explain one thing that makes you hesitant to adopt this choice.
  5. Analyze “The Killers” through the lens of a sociological theory from this lesson.
  6. Name a notable moral philosopher or sociologist whose writings you feel willnot lead you to be able to make any predictions about how some individual will act in particular situations. Provide an example of something done by an actual person or a character in a film that stands outside the range of what the theory predicts. Explain why you believe the actual act and the theory’s predictive ability are not compatible with each other.
  7. Philosopher, mathematician, and Nobel Laureate Bertrand Russell noted that traditional ethical judgments have included such rules as it is wicked to marry one’s deceased wife’s sister. He supposed that an individual’s kindness and generosity should hold greater moral weight than avoidance of wickedness by not marrying the sister. In your judgment, what has led people to create a value system that values obedience to such laws over the consistent engagement in kindness?
