There is not, indeed, any sublimity in him, so far as he is subject to the moral law; but inasmuch as in regard to that very law he is likewise a legislator, and on that account alone subject to it, he has sublimity , e.g. Life and Death Decisions: The read online read online.

The Nazis were not trying to teach moral lessons. They were simply trying to get people to cooperate (to do wrong for fear of bad consequences), to break down their sense of right and wrong ("You are so high and noble, what is the right answer to the dilemma?"), and to distract people from the malevolence of the Nazis themselves , cited: Debating Moral Education: read pdf read pdf.

It will not be surprising, however, to learn that the proper end of rational purpose will be the rational nature itself: "Rational nature is distinguished from other in that it proposes an end to itself. This end would be the material of every good will" [Beck, p.56]. Thus: In this way, a world of rational beings (mundus intelligibilis) is possible as a realm of ends, because of the legislation belonging to all persons as members [Beck, p.57] -- Nun ist auf solche Weise eine Welt vernünftiger Wesen (mundus intelligibilis) als ein Reich der Zwecke möglich und zwar durch die eigene Gesetzgebung aller Personen als Glieder.

Bertunie Berluce Professor Hofer ENC 1101 6 February 2010 Moral corruption results from mankind’s need to satisfy their selfish desires.... Ancient philosophers such as Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates sought out to explain why we do what we consciously know is not the moral ideal. Aristotle defined moral weakness as a person who, "knowing that what he does is bad, does it as a result of passion." It would undoubtedly be a world more primitive than our own, but pursuing such a policy is still conceivable in it ref.: Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude read for free These are to be found scattered throughout Five Types.

Since God is the Author of all things, He knows what is good and what is bad so all we need do is ask Him and we will then know exactly what we ought, or ought not, to do. Though straight-forward, this is not quite as simple as it sounds. Firstly, there are different varieties of God out there which seem to have different views on how things should be done (as small examples: one seems to demand that deference to Him should be shown by covering the head and exposing the feet whereas another requires exactly the opposite; one requires us to have just one wife at a time, another enjoins us to have several; one indicates we should stone adulterers, another says forgive them) , cited: The Discourses of Epictetus, download online download online.

Being altruistic to other members of the band strengthened the community, allowing its members to produce more successful offspring. The closeness of the community also put other members in a position to reciprocate, which directly aids and reinforces the moral codes. Colloquially, one might call this a win-win situation -- where helping others instead of competing with them allows everyone to be better off An Ethical Movement: A Volume read pdf Mill himself did not take this minimalist view of utilitarianism; he thought of it instead in more cosmic terms as including, directly, a theory about what is of ultimate or intrinsic value and, derivatively, accounts of justice, virtue, liberty, good character and the good life, among others ref.: Contemporary Philosophical Alternatives and the Crisis of Truth A Critical Study of Positivism, Existentialism Amd Marxism read for free.

If he is a Stoic, he is apt to have a decidedly strained notion of what "flourishing consists" in; if he is a Jew or Christian, he need not have any very distinct notion: the way it will profit him to abstain from injustice is something that he leaves it to God to determine, him self only saying "It can't do me any good to go against his law." (But he also hopes for a great reward in a new life later on, e.g. at the coming of Messiah; but in this he is relying on special promises.) It is left to modern moral philosophy‑the moral philosophy of all the well‑known English ethicists since Sidgwick‑-to construct systems according to which the man who says "We need such‑and‑such, and will only get it this way" may be a virtuous character: that is to say, it is left open to debate whether such a procedure as the judicial punishment of the innocent may not in some circumstances be the "right" one to adopt; and though the present Oxford moral philosophers would accord a man permission to "make it his principle" not to do such a thing, they teach a philosophy according to which the particular consequences of such an action could "morally" be taken into account by a man who was debating what to do; and if they were such as to conflict with his "ends," it might be a step in his moral education to frame a moral principle under which he "managed" (to use Mr International Public Health Policy and Ethics (International Library of Ethics, Law, and the New Medicine) And we are not equipped with the ethical insights and the moral restraints that are necessary to deal wisely and appropriately with these choices.
