Ethical life is a stage of self consciousness towards which the individual of Hegel’s time is seen by Hegel to be living within, and to be constructing throughout his life. Hegel would claim that the moral individual would not try to dissociate from this, for his own benefit. He argues that reason is manifested in the benefit of the individual rather than of the social. By this, he means that while earlier forms of government and other institutions were based on a sense of community, the modern government has dialectically adapted to the individualism of modern life. Some of the mentalities in modern life were considered to be dangerous to the welfare of society as a whole.
Often times a question of what is right or wrong can be answered if one considers the effect that it will have on another person. Society should strive to preserve humanity in seeking to think before acting and thinking about others. That point works hand in hand with respect. If we can respect one another, than it is possible to derive an ethical system where the needs of every individual comes first.
Another aspect the reader would miss out on are the chapters that diverge from the main plot line showing his logical way of thinking. The powerful meaning behind the novel all comes from the use of first person. First, letting the reader inside of Christopher's head lets us empathize with him because we know his situation. If the novel was written in third person the reader may not like Christopher because we would think of him as difficult, oblivious to the obvious, and possibly be the hated character. After reading chapter 29 we learn how he can’t interpret others facial or unders...
However, if one must delve beneath the surface of the controversial phrase, one will notice that leaders of this concept created this system so that persons dwelling in that society would view certain situations, and the system itself, as being equal, fair and just. Traditionally, in order to have a society in which the persons are engaged in some form of order, a number of restrictions were implemented on freedom of speech and also the sharing of ideas among peers. The concept of “social order” allows persons in a particular society to have one constant cultural (religious), and political belief. Based on Comte and Spencer’s argument, social order in modern society should not be as strict as that in traditional society because of our ability as individuals to think rationally. Traditional society was a society which was mainly ruled by religion an... ... middle of paper ... ...ithin the society.
Ethics in general are the ideas about how to behave yourself and do well. Therefore, social ethics is about the right behavior and giving a better life for people in the society.

Holden wants to keep his life simple with his own individuality by not conforming to what society considers normal. Even though society expects people to behave in a "correct way", personality and individuality play an important role in allowing oneself to learn from the decisions and actions one may make in life. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, conformity means the actions that replicate the acts of the majority of people in a society or group; the condition of obeying or agreeing with. Throughout The Catcher in the Rye, Holden faces situations that force him to make his own decisions. He often rejects making a decision based off what others believe is correct.

As the book progresses, Huckleberry gains a deeper understanding of how to take a step back and not think in terms of what society says is true, but what his heart tells him. Huckleberry’s distaste for society is what ultimately pushed him to look deeper into what he himself wanted with his life. He figures out that sometimes, society has it all wrong, and that at times you just have to follow your heart. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, we find that what is honorable is to follow your natural moral instincts, not what society and civilization say is moral.
The inadequate knowledge of dog psychology in owners not only unveils their neglect of responsibility, but models their poor assessment in dog behavior pertaining to the individual breed; in addition, it confirms their shortage of precautionary measures to suppress aggression within the dog. In Don Kapp’s “It’s More About Owner Than Dog,” owners overlook their incapacity to meet the desires of the certain breed. When a person acquires an animal, its essential to acknowledge all “responsibility.” And by this, owners must study about the precise breed, it’s personality type and be able train and “socialize” them. Some owners however, discount the need to adjust early signs of disobedient behavior during the peak “first five months,” where suitable behavior of a dog can be conditioned. Owners tend to treat all dogs alike, yet not all dogs are created equal.
However, we see that this is the nature of human society especially during times of “crisis”. During such times, society creates the binary notion of “us vs. them”; “us” are people who identify with the norm and are not seen as deviants, where “them” are people who are seen as “the others”, those who do not conform to our societal expectations. The others are seen as a national threat to the security of the nation state. To understand Shohat’s perspective as a victim of binarisms, analysis of the creation of “us vs. them” is critical in comprehending the oppressions that binaries create. Furthermore, we must explore what and who are threats to norms of society especially when the nation-state declares a “state of emergency”.
