Ideally, this is correct, but there is more than that. Individuals impose ethics of one system of beliefs onto everyone and see themselves as the arbiter of moral ethics. According to Merriam-Webster, an arbiter means a person whose views or actions have the greatest influence over trends in social behavior. They seem to be the authority of what is “right, good, or proper”.
Ethics have been apart of life since we born. We are taught at a young age to not still, and that it is bad; to always hold that door open for older people, and to just be whole heartily kind. Also we have to think ethically every decision we have to make and to take everything in apart of what you decide, even keeping you in interest. It is important to consider a situation or contest in which moral problems occur. Also it is important to establish moral principles, rules and guidelines.
Ethical Egoism A rear assumption is that the needs and happiness of other people will always effects on our moral ethics. If we accept this assumption, we think that our moral ethics are balancing our self-interest against that of others. It is true, that “What is morally right or wrong depends not only on how it makes us feel, but also how it affects others”. The idea of each person ought to pursue his or her own self -interest exclusively to do in his life time for others is known as Ethical Egoism. In other words, ethical egoism states that • There are objective moral facts and • An action is morally good if and only if it promotes my personal happiness and it is morally wrong if and only if that action hinders my personal happiness.
Based on this analysis, young children would need Kant`s outlook on morality in order to be sufficient in society. In this paper, I will argue that we as moral agents have a sense of duty to educate young children on how they should act by allowing them to reason and make rational decisions in society. In order to do this, educators which includes parents and caregivers, must teach young children the true purpose of good will based on Kantian ethics. Secondly, educators must instruct young children on how to implement policies, which Kant refers to as maxims, which are universal (Kant, 287). This concept is based on Kant`s principle of universal law.
He is not so much focused on the right or wrong answer but in the reasoning behind the decision making. Stage one of preconventional morality focuses on obedience and punishment. This stage is most commonly seen in younger children. This is because children see rules as fixed and certain things. Following rules is important and must be done because it is how a child believes they will avoid punishment.
The only thing that they would have an issue with was if I brought home an “F.” I can’t say that was a bad way of parenting, but the fact that they didn’t push me hard enough to want to make an “A” wasn’t good either. I always wondered what life would be like if I had parents that constantly were on my back about grades, and just my school work in general. My parents methods for raising me helped me to find that inner motivation that always got me get through every obstacle I faced. I believe when you go as far as removing all barriers from your child’s path, it enables them to grow mentally and develo... ... middle of paper ... ...ous day. I was confused because I received the same grade, but unlike them I was excited about my “B.” I considered the fact that my parents only cared if I brought home a failing grade, which was probably why our reactions were totally different.
Just what do I mean by that well moral means that you are distressed with all fundamentals of both right and wrong actions and you can see decency and mercilessness of human integrity, right? What about awareness am I truly able to apprehend, feel, or be attentive of my beliefs and concerns? I myself cannot speak for anyone else but for myself, my answer is a definite yes. My morale awareness is with me, I for one just need to listen and acknowledge it. By paying close attention to my moral self it will always lead me to my best ethical behavior in
I believe that putting others before yourself is important, it is also essential to remember that you too are a person and you deserve happiness. The only issue I have with the Moral Point of View is the grey area over how to decide which actions should be for yourself and which should be for others. If there was a clearer outline of how to decide then this point of view would be more concrete. Besides the grey area, the Moral point of View takes into account everyone in every situation and examines the big picture which is why I support
Have our morals been taught to us from a young age? Do they truly exist are are they a norm imposed to people by society? Does morality really exist or is it just a creation of our imagination? The Oxford dictionary defines morality as the principles concerning a person being able to distinguish between right and wrong and good and bad behavior. Still, the meaning is not as clear as it seems.
“The rules we know, even the ones we intuitively feel, are by no means the rules we always follow.” This implies that a good judgment is pretty reliable starting with man on man. However, those standards we know, and the ones we understand, are in no way shape or form those standards we take after. I agree with Kluger, our parents could teach us morality, but doesn’t simply mean we going to follow what we have learned as soon as we walk out the house. We may know it’s bad or good but the environment or your mood will determine how that day will go. My mom has always taught my siblings and me to respect people doesn’t matter the age or gender, to treat people the way you want to be treated.
