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 texactness​of 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 wexceptions​to 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 deta​xamined 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 acknowledging​ourpart 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:  ■ Immanuel​Kant​ 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:  ○ Convergent​Thinking​ 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.
