Analysis of Moral Luck Views of Aristotle and Epictetus - Analysis of Moral Luck Views of Aristotle and Epictetus Aristotle, the founder of western science, and Epictetus, one of the greatest stoicists, both has their theories for the issue of "Moral Luck".

Educational Literacy in the Context of Environmental Ethics - Educational Literacy in the Context of Environmental Ethics ABSTRACT: I explore the concept of literacy and the role it might play in environmental ethics.

The creation of such a culture requires the development of knowledge and abilities that will help sustain such a culture. Since education is one of the key institutions for instilling values and world views, it is important for environmental philosophers to think about the institutionalization of environmental theories in terms of their implications for the environmentally literate person....   [tags: Environment Literacy Education Essays]

The Philosophical Theories of Utilitarian and Kantian Ethics - ... Therefore Kantian ethics put a moral worth on the means to an end. I believe that Kantian ethics hold a greater moral worth to an action because this theory brings about honorable characteristics in a persons with a determination of a particular action. Unlike utilitarian theory it stresses the means of getting to an end, and promotes rationality about whether those means are justifiable. Utilitarian theory is not concerned with the means, as long as the ends are good, which will give a person a justified reason of acting immoral to gain beneficial consequences....   [tags: Philosophy] 1273 words

Realizing Whether or Not Behaviour is Ethical - Realizing Whether or Not Behaviour is Ethical In order to be able to answer this question we must first define what ethics is. Most of the dictionaries and philosophers define it as “a science of morality”; it’s the study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person. And therefore in order to answer how we can know whether our behaviour is ethical, we must find out whether our behaviour is moral.

The Morally Obvious - The Morally Obvious I. Obviousness. There is no way to contrive an ethical theory which does not rely in the end upon moral judgments that are subjectively "intuitive" or obvious or "just seen".

If one supposes that moral valuations are sui generis, irreducible, the deliverances of a moral sense or faculty, then manifestly what one "just feels" or "just sees" to be morally valuable will have to be the final court of appeal....   [tags: Ethics Philosophy Moral Papers]
