Living The Impossible
Living The Impossible Dylan Holcomb Is it possible to be a moral individual in todays immoral society. In my opinion the answer is yes. Absolute morality is an obtainable goal. The real question is, why would it be done and are there any true moral people left today? The real problem to being a completely moral person is what has to be given up. To succeed in life today people must be stepped on. If money, a nice house, a nice car, and a family is what todays optimistic high school graduate is l
Euthanasia
Euthanasia
Euthanasia Since the evolution of man, infants have been born with severe illnesses. These infants may be able to survive due to advancing technologies, but are left with possible and probable defects. Many infants will die even though they are being treated because they are not equipped to sustain life. These circumstances have led to the debatable issue of infant euthanasia, or mercy killing, to allow these babies an end to their suffering, and die peacefully. While many people feel that eutha

Ethical Management of E-mail Privacy As I am sitting at my work station in a crowded office building, I hear the wonderful sound of You\'ve got mail. In turn I open my E-mail mailbox and find a letter from a nearby employee. This letter contains the usual funny joke of the day and a short joke ridiculing the boss, as usual. Who was to know that my supervisor would eventually find this letter, which would lead to both the termination of my job and my fellow employee? Does this sound common? It

Cloning Research in the field of embryology and genetics has exploded over the past decade. New advances about in vitro fertilization and genetic screening are leading to new procedures in which human embryo cloning will be possible in the near future. Human cloning, however, brings up many new ethical questions that will need to be addressed by the scientific community and the public before these advances can reach their full potential. Scientific advances bring social changes that many people

GENTIC ENGINEERING Abstract This paper sets out to defend human genetic engineering with a new bioethical approach, post-humanism, combined with a radical democratic political framework. Arguments for the restriction of human genetic engineering, and specifically germ-line enhancement, are reviewed. Arguments are divided into those which are fundamental matters of faith, or bio-Luddite arguments, and those which can be addressed through public policy, or gene-angst arguments. The four bio-Lu

The School Prayer Amendment Pundits and editorial writers pounced on Newt Gingrich when he suggested, soon after the election, that Republicans in the House would take up a school prayer amendment after acting on the agenda outlined in the Contract With America. Most insisted the proposal was a major political blunder. But then most of them had previously decried the contract itself as a major political blunder, sure to lose votes for Republican candidates.

Morality and Ethics and Computers There are many different sides to the discussion on moral and ethical uses of computers. In many situations, the morality of a particular use of a computer is up to the individual to decide. For this reason, absolute laws about ethical computer usage is almost, but not entirely, impossible to define. The introduction of computers into the workplace has introduced many questions as well: Should employers make sure the workplace is designed to minimize health risk

Euthanasia delves into moral, ethical, and personal issues, which is where most opposition comes into effect.

It is not the attempt of this paper to state the complete affect of Epicurus on society nor is it to be exhaustive on the work of the letter to menoeceus due to the limited magnitude of this paper. Early life and training Epicurus was born to Neocles (a schoolteacher) and chair Estrate of Samos. Epicurus began to study philosophy at the age of 14. His first mentor was Platonist Pamphilus of S
Abortion
Abortion
Abortion Since 1973, one of the most polarized issues in American Politics and around the world remains to be induced abortions. The concept of aborting a pregnancy is nothing new to Americans; some pregnancies are aborted naturally, but not since the landmark trial Roe v. Wade has the debate become so personal. This paper discusses the legal history of abortion in America, the medical procedures involved in an abortion, sociological ramifications of the trial Roe v. Wade, and my perspective on
Euthanasia
Euthanasia
Euthanasia Euthanasia, as defined by Webster, is a painless, easy death. The word actually comes from the Greek language: eu means good and thantos means death. The meaning of the word has evolved from good death. It now refers to the act of ending anthers life, in order to minimize suffering. There is an enormous distinction, that is crucial to undertand, between active and passive euthanasia. Active euthanasia is the intentional killing of another human being. Passive euthanasia is simpl

Hand Guns Analysis In the article in which Nelson T. Shield III argues that handguns should be banned in the U.S, he strongly victimizes guns as the direct cause and that they are responsible for the nation’s rising crime rate. He intentionally stereotypes high crime rate cities like Los Angeles and mislead the uses of handguns as the major tools for murders. I disagree with his views that handguns are responsible for promoting violence in societies, and so will every law-abiding citizens that h

Capital Punishment Thesis One: In principle a case can be made on moral grounds both supporting and opposing capital punishment. Thesis two: Concretely and in practice, compelling arguments against capital punishment can be made on the basis of its actual administration in our society. Two different cases can be made. One is based on justice and the nature of a moral community. This leads to a defense of capital punishment. The second is based on love and the nature of an ideal spiritual communi

Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great Alexander was born on or around July 20, 356 B.C. to Philip and Olympias. Like all Macedonians, Alexander liked his liquor. His fondness for wine also caused some of his outbursts of rage. Alexander liked drama, the flute and the lyre, poetry and hunting. What he truly wanted in his life was glory and valor, rather than easy living and riches. To say the least, Alexander matured early. A famous anecdote describes Alexander skillfully receiving Persian envoys in Philip\'s cour

Why Be Moral? The title question Why be moral? has been around a long time. Let us first inquire: what does it mean to be moral? There are several definitions that might be considered. For this paper I will use the definition that to be moral is to follow God’s moral rules. This is the one favored by many members of the religious right in our country. One such answer would be to say that people should follow God\'s moral rules because to do so would increase their likelihood of obtaining salva
