    Philosophy 2 Smart’s argument, “someone could be morally obligated to execute an innocent person to prevent something worse”, must be accepted by all utilitarians. Smart’s argument must be accepted by all ultilitarians based on certain principles of utilitarianism, which make it possible for us to make the assumption: all utilitarians believe in consequentialism. Consequentialism in turn is the basis behind Smart’s argument being true. The example Smart refers to is McCloskey’s situation of whether or not a sheriff should kill an innocent man to save hundreds of pe

    To Be Great Is To Be Misunderstood

    439 words, 2 pages

    In this world, there can be people who are courageous, strong, brave, heroic or just plain misunderstood. Just because someone is misunderstood doesn’t mean that he or she is weird or a nobody, it can be the start of something big or it can make a huge change in the world. One of the quotes that best describes this is, “To be great is to be misunderstood.” This quote can be found in the Self-Reliance story by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Although this quote may be true, it can also have an opposite effect. One of the ways that it is true is in the history of the world. There have been many men and

    Psychological Egoism

    Psychological egoism is the view that everyone always acts selfishly. It describes human nature as being wholly self-centered and self-motivated. Psychological egoism is different from ethical egoism in their “direction of fit” to the world. Psychological ego-ism is a factual theory. It aims to fit the world. In the world is not how psychological ego-ism says it is because someone acts unselfishly, then something is wrong with psycho-logical egoism. In my opinion this argument is completely wrong and unsound. According to James Rachel, an author of “Elements of Moral Philosophy,” there two

    In our last class we examined the argument of William Clifford, and William James. In this essay I will simply examine the two opposing sides. Clifford takes the side of Evidentialism. Evidentialism is the standing that for a belief to be knowledge, it must be supported by evidence. According to evidentialism, everyone has a rational and moral duty to believe only those claims that are supported by sufficient evidence. If a belief doesn't fit in with well established scientific beliefs or isn't discovered through normal scientific practices, then it isn't rational and doesn't count as genuine
