Day 18 4/6/2016: Ethics As Critical Process An Introduction To Ethical Reasoning: What Are Morals? ● Definition: the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are good or right and those that are bad or wrong. ● There is an either/or direction to move in: ○ ← Right Decision : Wrong Decision → What Are Ethics? ● Ethics refers moralphilosophy a branch of thought that address whaught o to do. ● There are many different directions to move in: ○ Values. Morals. ○ Dilemma. Wrong. ○ Right. Benefit. ○ Compliance. Choice. ● Applied Ethics: the rational articulation of choices, some of which are better than others. Morals Vs Ethics: ● Morals: ○ Believes in texactnessof right and wrong. ○ Believes that codes of right and wrong rfir in every situation. ○ Believes that codes of right and wrong peral individuals equally. ○ One acceptable course of action that can and should be chosen in every case, regardless of the situation’s specific details or the persons involved. ● Ethics: ○ Questions the exactness of right and wexceptionsto a rule). ○ Recognizes that codes of right and wshif in various situations. ○ Believes that codes of right and shif given the stakeholders. ○ Many acceptable courses of action that can be chosen, given, particularly when the situations’ specific detaxamined and the need or wellbeing of the persons involved are considered. ● Because ethics looks at the situational nature of a problem and recognizes multiple courses of action, the reasoning that we use to arrive at a set of solutions necessarily follows a critical process. One follows a series of steps to work through an ethical dilemma. Ethical Reasoning As Process: ● 1. Identify The Ethical Dilemma: ○ An ethical dilemma is a complex situation that often involves conflict between certain moral imperatives, in which to obey one would result in transgressing another. ○ Ultimat uestion “Which undesirable choice do I make?” ● 2. Devise Possible Courses Of Action: ○ DivergentThinking generating as many ideas as possible without prejudice and without applying a selection of criteria that would eliminate a choice. ● 3. Identify Possible Stakeholders: ○ Stakeholders represent any individuals who have a vested interest or concern in your ethical decision making. ○ Identifying the stakeholders also requires identifying the power dynamics in play and acknowledgingourpart in those dynamics. ● 4. Determine Possible Outcomes For The Stakeholders: ○ How might a given choice affect the stakeholders that you identified? ○ To whom are you the most obliged? ○ To whom will you show a duty? ○ Who will benefit most from a certain course of action? ○ Who will benefit least from a certain course of action? ○ Who will be harmed as a result of a certain course of action? ● 5. Apply An Ethical Principle: ○ Altruism ■ Auguste Comte: individuals have a moral obligation to help, serve or benefit others, if necessary at the sacrifice of selfinterest. An action is right if the consequences of that action are more favorable than unfavorable to everyone except the agent. ○ Asceticism ■ Characterized by voluntary abstinence from various sorts of worldly pleasures (especially sexual activity, the consumption of alcohol, and the accumulation of property and wealth), often with the aim of pursuing religious or spiritual goals. ○ Egoism: ■ Max Sterne: moral agents ought to do what is in their own selfinterest. ○ Epicureanism: ■ Epicurus: tranquility can be obtained through knowledge of the workings of the world and the limiting of desires. Thus, pleasure is obtained by knowledge, friendship, and living a virtuous and temperate life. ○ Utilitariani: ■ Jeremy Bentham + John Stuart Mi the moral worth of an action is solely determined by its contribution to overall utility in maximizing happiness or pleasure as summed among all people. ○ Categorical Imperative: ■ ImmanuelKant moral agents should act in a way that they would wish to be universal and also treat others as an end to themselves not a means to a personal end. ● 6. Narrow Possible Courses Of Action: ○ ConvergentThinking critically assessing the generated and eliminating ideas utilizing a given selection of criteria. ● 7. Make A Choice: Notes for this will continue on Week 10; Day 19 + 20.
