Morality : The subject of morality is addressed in this 6 page paper. Philosophers such as Kant and Epictetus are recognized as well as more contemporary views such as those of Carol Gilligan. The reason why man should behave morally is derived after looking at two basic divisions in thought. The concept of utilitarianism, and its applicability to the discussion, is included as well. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Morality.wps

Nietzsche and the Question of Morality : A 10 page examination of the question of the need for man’s morality as supported by Nietzsche, a German philosopher most often known for what is perceived as his opposition to morality. Concludes that Nietzsche’s work actually supports rather than denounces the need for morality. Bibliography lists seven sources. Moral.wps

Nietzsche’s "The Genealogy Of Morals" / Democratic Prejudice of the Modern Age : This 5 page research paper examines the term "democratic prejudice" which is used by Friedrich Nietzsche in his 1887 treatise, The Genealogy of Morals. Specifically discussed are the concepts of master and slave; good and evil; and how language has been used to perpetuate prejudice throughout history. Bibliography lists 1 source. Demmod.wps

The writer explains his views on emotivism, virtue, and the state of modern moral discourse. Bibliography lists one source. MacInty.wps

Personal Ethics and the Good Life : A 5 page paper that considers what elements are necessary for determining the "good life" and happiness. By providing numerous examples, the writer supports the belief that morality and personal ethics are necessary elements in achieving internal happiness. Bibliography lists 1 source. Goodlife.wps

Adultery / A Kantian Perspective : A 7 page paper positing that desire is a mental construct, that curtailing desire is natural to human nature and is formulated by reasoning, that reasoning leads to both individual and community ethics based on moral principles established for the good of the community, and that obligation and duty of individuals within the community establish an ethical foundation for living within the community, therefore we can assume that Kant would support the theory that adultery is disallowed, and therefore unethical. Bibliography lists 4 supporting sources. Kantadu.wps

Ethical Theory / Kantian Perspective -- Abortion Is Not Always Wrong : A 5 age paper arguing that abortion is not always wrong from the perspective of Immanuel Kant. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Aborkant.wps

Kant and The Ethics of Choice : A 5 page paper that investigate the significants of intention or consequences on the moral and ethical decisions of individuals. This paper supports Kant's theory that though man may incorporate personal and sometimes selfish considerations into the process of ethical determinations, this does not negate the moral applications of these choices. At the same time, Kant's theories call in to question whether the effects of moral choices, whether good or not, are considered good simply becasue of the intention of the individual making the determination. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Kanteth.wps

Immanuel Kant's 'Supreme Principle of Morality’ : This 6 page research paper examines the morality principle of German philosopher Immanuel Kant. Specifically discussed are the definition of this principle, its intention, and the necessary components to ensure this "supreme morality." Bibliography lists 4 sources. Kantim.wps

Air Traffic Controllers Dismissal And Its Relation The Works Of Kant : A 6 page paper discussing Kant's imperatives to government and the governed people as they relate to the firing of the Air Traffic Controllers by Ronald Reagan. The paper postulates that Reagan's decision was short-sighted, because his actions have potentially lead to that which he sought to prevent--a socialistic public labor pool. The paper discusses the affects of his decision in relationship to both the public and private sector, and how it may have resulted in the quiet revolution affecting the private sector. Although Kant specifies that altruistic citizens subject themselves to their sovereign, they must also police their sovereign, and therefore, the long-term results of Reagan's decision are in the hands of the people. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Controlr.wps

The Case of Stella Liebeck and Tort Reform as Supported by the Works of Kant : A 5 page paper that seeks to prove that Immanuel Kant would support both Stella Liebeck's case and Congress' subsequent tort reform laws, simply because they meet his altruism ideals for citizens and government under his laws of citizen duty to act under the laws and slow government reform. This paper claims that Kant would not support McDonald's egoism in retaining their hot coffee policy because of the number of complaints received prior to Liebeck's case--and also his "mine and thine" policy on dual responsibility. Kant was a supporter of free-will as long as the individual agreed to avoid chaos by lending itself to government's laws, and a supporter of government as long as it made slow reforms that did not incite revolutionaries. Bibliography includes 6 sources . Kantmc.wps

Social Welfare & Kant / A Philosophical Perspective : A 7 page paper that considers the philosophical question of societal and individual moral determinations of the welfare system. This paper demonstrates that the current welfare system is based on the moral and ethical choices of society and of the individual, and considers Kant's perspectives on moral obligations in its development. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Socialw.wps

Jack-in-the-Box / Who is Responsible for Consumer Protection ? : A 6 page paper positing that although Jack-in-the-Box seems to be altruistic in its considerations of the harm it caused its customers, the federal government has not been as conscientious--they have said that responsibility for consumer protection resides in at the state government level. According to Kant and consumer protection groups, there is an inherent danger in this, as despotism is alive at the state level, and that many states are governed arbitrarily by people with special interests. Given this situation, via Kant's advice, it behooves consumers to continue policing all levels of government in order to find the protection from harm to which they are entitled. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Jackbox.wps

Ethics / Virtue vs. Utilitarianism : A 6 page philosophy paper that argues in support of virtues over utilitarian treatment of relatives with a disabling disease such as Alzheimer’s. The paper posits the requirements for the younger generations today and in the future, discusses the utilitarian ideal, and then argues against the application of the ideal to the instant case. Bibliography lists 14 sources. Philalz.wps

Corporate Social Responsibility : 9 pages in length. Few could argue with Adam Smith’s statement that "It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest." Those businesses that refuse to look after their own self interests will not be businesses long enough to have any impact. At the same time, however, there can certainly be regard for a larger purpose. For some businesses, commitment to a larger purpose would be simply learning the difference between right and wrong, while others take a more responsible view of the role they play in the lives of their employees, their customers, and ultimately how they affect the world. Avis, Federal Express and Sam Walton’s philosophies are used as examples. Bibliography lists 5 sources. Corpresp.wps

A Look At Business Ethics : A 6 page research essay looking at three examples each of businesses with solid, high ethical standards and those with less-than-high such standards. "Scoundrels" listed are Starbucks Coffee (predatory practices), Hefty trash bags (deceptive environmental advertising at the litigation level) and Columbia/HCA Healthcare (rebates and financial incentives to physicians for using Columbia facilities). The good guys listed are Weyerhauser (solid environmental practices), Mary Kay Cosmetics and Southwest Airlines. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Ethi.wps

Business Ethics : 7 pages in lenght. The "scoundrels" of today’s business operate from the point that all is fair, depending on who thinks of it and acts on it first. Those with a high level of ethical standards have the added advantage of dedicated and loyal employees who do their best for their company and for its customers. Success can come by way of meanness and shortcut, but it means more when it is achieved through ethical behavior as exhibited by Weyerhauser, Mary Kay and Southwest Airlines. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Ethics.wps

Common Morality’s Applicability to Business : 6 pages in length. The concepts of right and wrong seem so simple on the surface. Webster’s defines morality as adherence to a standard of "right human conduct." Superficially, that definition would be easy for the "simple" to understand. When the focus is narrowed, however, it seems that the concept of morality grays in its boundaries. Morality is not only the black and white that the "simple" so seemingly effortlessly can see, with that clear line of demarcation between it and immorality. Focus is increasingly narrowed in our harried lives of today, but all of us are charged with keeping vigilance on the level of standard we will tolerate. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Morbusi.wps

Classical Virtue Theory & Contemporary Human Behavior : A 5 page paper that considers whether the ethics of classical virtue theory can be applied to contemporary human behaviors. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Virtue.wps

The Utilitarian Ideal Applied to Smoking : A 4 page piece on how the utilitarian ideal, which states that individual rights must be given up for the greater good of all, has been applied to the recent anti-smoking agenda in America. The utilitarian images applied include: policy not backed by research, but applied in the case of children and public smoking in the case of adults; state class action suits and the tobacco settlements; and how the government is trying to incorporate utilitarian and individual freedoms under one umbrella. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Utilsmok.wps

Abortion / A Moral Issue No Matter How One Looks At It : 10 pages in length. A realistic look at the pro-choice (abortion) argument and its implications.

Bibliography lists 16 sources. Prochoic.wps

Animal Rights # 3 : A variety of animal rights issues are addressed in this 5 page essay. Arguments on both sides of the fence are considered. Activists such as Peter Singer and Tom Regan are noted and their positions stated. Morality is considered as the basis for many of the arguments and the paper concludes that perhaps a compromise in treatment of animals in society can be reached. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Anhmn.wps

Animal Rights : 12 pages in length. Mankind's arrogance has created a world of pain and suffering for his animal counterparts. From research and testing to animals in entertainment to the seemingly innocent "sport" of recreational fishing, animals constantly forfeit their intrinsic rights to a life free of pain, suffering and exploitation.

Other points of discussion include technological advancements that preclude much of animal testing, and a discussion of how government regulation undermines this process. Bibliography lists 2 sources Eudaimsm.wps

Dolphins And Personhood : 6 pages in length. For many, the concept of personhood is reserved strictly for humanity. However, that is a self-centered, arrogant concept that has no basis of fact. Dolphins possess many -- if not all -- of the qualifications that represent personhood; in fact, they are one of many within the nonhuman world who can be considered persons by its very definition. The writer addresses the concept of dolphins as persons, as well as sites examples of such. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Prsnhood.wps

The writer addresses the concept of dolphins as persons, as well as sites examples of such. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Prsnhood.wps

Kickback Ethics : 5 pages in length. Sometimes, the boundaries between "ethical" and "legal" are totally clear. Other times, however, the distinction is not so easy to make.

Recent measures by French courts have basically removed all of the teeth from any regulatory prohibitions of kickbacks already in place, causing observers to conclude that "the courts have done the dirty work of the politicians."
