Proposed by the British philosopher Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), the principal of utility is based on happiness and was seen as being a scientific approach to morality. In a new book, First Things First, Covey (1994) says everyone and every family (and every organization, every nation, etc.) should have a well thought out "Mission Statement," a set of values, or a guiding philosophy of life. Knowing truth - The reality of the physical world, the validity of our sensory input, and the ability we have to correctly interpret the world is a given in the Bible.

As positive moral characteristics do not appear spontaneously (Berkowitch & Grych, 1998), addressing our cultural moral crisis will take the commitment and involvement of many elements of society, including early childhood education. Try to facilitate solutions rather than actually deciding and imposing decisions, unless all parties are happy for you to do so. In other words, the questions are What is the content of morality? Hypothetical: Applies only to some under certain circumstances. (�If X then do Y.�� or more usually, �If you want x then do y. ) Note: The imperative �Don�t smoke!� may look categorical.� But it is really an hypothetical imperative of the form, �If you want to avoid lung cancer, throat cancer, mouth cancer, emphysema, heart disease, and prematurely wrinkled skin, then don�t smoke.� But hypothetical imperatives are optional; they apply only to some people, some times under some circumstances (and not others).

There is a paucity of literature addressing this question. This was because it was really more problematic or complicated than I had realized. Also, see the defense of Kant in Stephen Darwall's Impartial Reason (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1983) and in his "Kantian Practical Reason Defended," Ethics, Vol. 96, No. 1 (October, 1985), pp. 89-99. Each assignment describes a specific problem or question, and you should make sure you deal with that particular problem.

Ancient Greek philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle, frequently used the term in reference to character on the battlefield. The reason I say "or likely to come into place" is that the person who puts the bucket of water above the door as a practical joke is the cause of the drenching of the person who goes through the door, rather than the fault of the person who unsuspectingly uses the door in the normal way, even though the bucket was there first.

Cavalier's Introduction to Ethics (80130). Tallying only those consequences reveals that assisting the victim would be the morally correct choice, irrespective of the negative consequences that result for her. Remember that earlier Nietzsche claimed that the rise of the belief that "everything has its price" is the true origin of justice, presumably because before that man did not compare other men's actions to a standard, a table of punishments. Rule-utilitarianism, then, offers a three-tiered method for judging conduct.

Shambhala, 1999, p. 122 I will not be gluttonous nor abuse intoxicants. But Poland, which refused swine flu vaccines altogether, had only one-tenth of its proportional share of international swine flu deaths.24 These data strongly suggest that the swine flu immunization campaigns may actually have been counterproductive.
