Ethical Judgments and the Production of Knowledge

- Humans are rational and emotional creatures whose intellect allows for the evaluation of behaviors and actions. These evaluations help humans rule over actions and create ethical judgments. Ethical judgments dictate over what should be done and restrict the way of being of individuals. Ethical judgments have an impact in the methods available in the production of knowledge, but are not considered hindrances since they affirm the principles of human morality and are needed to judge knowledge claims....   [tags: The Stem Cell Debate]

The 's Argument That All Moral Judgments

- Moral Objectivism         The purpose of this essay is to elaborate on John Ludwig Mackie’s argument that all moral judgments are false considering they presuppose moral objectivity which is itself inaccurate. To do so, I shall explain Mackie’s reasoning as to why the belief that moral values are objective was founded, and clarify Mackie’s arguments for why such an idea is misleading. Furthermore, I shall demonstrate how John McDowell’s color analogy can successfully prove Mackie wrong. The argument of this essay will establish that Mackie is immune to the idea of moral objectivity for he finds it queer and unsupportive of the relativity shown throughout the world....   [tags: Morality, Ethics, J.

Aggregation of Individual Judgments and Priorities

- The decision makers have made their judgements from comparing criteria and alternatives. The next step is the aggregation of those judgements.

Aggregation of Individual Judgements Given a hierarchy, the decision makers input their judgements in each level. In this kind of aggregation, judgements are aggregated in each level of hierarchy. Forman and Peniwati (1998) state that “individual identities are lost with every stage of aggregation and a synthesis of the hierarchy produces the group’s priorities.” N decision makers will generate at least N judgement matric...   [tags: Information Technology ]

While moral judgments have long been a subject of interest in social psychology, only recently has the mechanism of such judgments been studied. Current research has shown that the specific context of a moral judgment has a substantial impact on the outcome of that judgment (Van Bavel, Packer, Johnsen Haas, & Cunningham, 2012). Further research on moral judgments suggests that attention may play a key role in the formation of these judgments (Kastner, 2010)....   [tags: social psychology]

In Revelation by Flannery O’Connor, Mrs. Turpin, a self righteous and frank character, suffers from those faults. It is a difficult task to think well of those who were given so much less than her, both mentally and in property.

I Am As A Person

- After taking this course, I have noticed that there have been changes within myself. None of these changes are huge but they are all little changes about things that make up who I am as a person. Prior to taking this course I would have labeled myself as a very open person. I thought that I was open to new ideas, new experiences, and new people. However the course made me realize that I wasn’t as open as I thought. Saying that you are open and actually being open is a totally different thing. I think part of the reason that I wasn’t as open and accepting as I thought I was is because I had never been forced to be open to new things in my life....   [tags: Culture, The Culture, Judgment, Thought]

Are Spinozistic Ideas Cartesian Judgements?

- Are Spinozistic Ideas Cartesian Judgements. Abstract Some commentators of Spinoza maintain that Spinozistic ideas are judgements. I shall call this view the common interpretation, since it is popular to interpret Spinoza as reacting against Descartes’s theory of ideas and accordingly consider Spinozistic ideas not as Cartesian ideas, but as Cartesian judgements. The clearest difference between Descartes and Spinoza here is that whereas Descartes thought that ideas are passive, Spinoza thought the opposite....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Essays]

Fairness : The Quality Of Being Free From Bias And Making Judgements

- Fairness to me is the quality of being free from bias and making judgements that are free from injustice and discrimination. I think fairness in a classroom is about treating every student fairly by not treating them in the same way.

But in reality, that doesn’t work at all because everyone is different in their own way....   [tags: Learning styles, Education]

The Geranium and Judgment Day

- Flannery O’Connor’s short-story work occurred during the 1950s and 1960s, a time in which race caused significant tensions among Americans. Raised in the south, Flannery grew up in an atmosphere of overt racism and Catholic fervor. Both of these influences affected the way she wrote. Flannery O'Connor conveyed both her moral and religious values in her writing, and she consistently wrote about religion and race within this narrow perspective. “Many of my ardent admirers would be roundly shocked and disturbed if they realized that everything I believe is thoroughly moral, thoroughly Catholic, and that it is these beliefs that give my work its chief characteristics” (O'Connor Habit 147–8).Sh...   [tags: Analysis, Flannery O’Connor]

Use of Proper Judgment in Othello

-         A central tenet of Othello is the concept of proper judgment, and to always use it when making decisions. The renaissance definition of proper judgment can be illustrated by the "hierarchy of proper judgment." Governing all is reason, which includes understanding and will. Below reason are common sense, memory, and imagination. Finally, at the bottom are the 5 senses, emotions, and passions. In order to judge properly, it was believed that reason had to govern all else. Proper judgment could never occur if only one item was relied upon to make the decision....   [tags: Othello essays]
