    Can we be good without God? At first the answer to this question may seem so obvious that even to pose it arouses indignation. For while those of us who are Christian theists undoubtedly find in God a source of moral strength and resolve which enables us to live lives that are better than those we should live without Him, nevertheless it would seem arrogant and ignorant to claim . 2. Right thinking is the preface and the key to every thing else in the higher life, and ignorance [sic]. 3. The lack of understanding is the root of all evil. 4. For developing right outlook, one must see all phenomena of life as a process of causal law. To have right outlook is to recognise the law of cause and effect. 5. The great majority of good actions are intended not for the benefit of the world, but for that of individuals, of which the good of the world is made up; and the thoughts of the most virtuous man need not on these occasions travel beyond the particular persons concerned, except so far as is necessary to assure himself that in benefiting them he. Jeremy Bentham, "Happiness Is the Greatest Good" Abstract: Bentham supports the principle of utility with the hedonistic or felicific calculus: a method or calculating the right thing to do by means of a quantitative scale. 1. According to Bentham, what are the causes of human action? What is the principle of utility? 2.

Right actions and good persons: controversies between eudaimonistic and deontic moral theories. [Marjaana Kopperi] -- First published inthis work tests the ancient against the modern in discussing whether modern approaches to ethics remain sufficiently able to provide a serious and justifiable account of.

A good government attempts to legislate such that it helps to habituate its citizens to act virtuously. Ethical virtue is concerned with feelings and actions. It is necessary to have the right feelings at the right times for the right things and for the right purposes.

Melissa. "Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics Book Two Summary and. Consists of our beliefs about right and wrong actions and good and bad persons or character. What is the difference between Ethics and Morality. Morality is a normative enterprise, which means that it provides us with norms, or standards for judging actions and persons.

'How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct' by Greg Gutfeld is a humorous and compelling attempt to quell the shouting matches between the political right and left, with the hope that the right will win in the end/5.

Reasons and Persons is unquestionably one of the most important philosophical works of the 20th century, although its conspicuous absence from bookstore shelves might suggest otherwise. But for those planning to read Parfit's masterwork of moral philosophy, I would like to offer two words of warning First, Parfit is a very, very rigorous thinker/5.

In Persons Unknown, she also writes about some touchy topics about class, race, guilt and love without coming across as being moralistic.

Persons Unknown is a steady paced, slow burner of a book with all the information and clues given on a need-to-know basis/5(). An explanation of what makes an action right or what makes a person or thing good. It is also defined as using moral data in a type of structure or the nature of rightness.

Ex: what it means for a human life to be going well. By contrast, the “right to have rights” insists that justice is at stake in the negotiation between the rights of members of a community and the rights of those who are not members of any community.

This is to say, politics is about negotiating the participatory boundaries of community. Confusion Between the Good and the Right.

All too often people confuse the notions of good and right. The confusion is understandable. Both concepts apply to what one should do, and often the debate is really about persuading someone to act in a certain way. Clarity of language and conceptual rigor seem to be less important than rhetoric.

Timeless Wisdom for the Modern Man In the years since its publication inAs a Man Thinketh has set thousands of men on the pathway to personal and financial growth.

Now, in this unique rendition of James Allen's masterwork, you, too, can manifest the traits and skills characteristic of those honorable, refined, and successful men/5(K).

Hume’s position in ethics, which is based on his empiricist theory of the mind, is best known for asserting four theses: (1) Reason alone cannot be a motive to the will, but rather is the “slave of the passions” (see Section 3) (2) Moral distinctions are not derived from reason (see Section 4).

(3) Moral distinctions are derived from the moral sentiments: feelings of approval (esteem. Good is the opposite of bad, and holy/sinless is the opposite of evil. Right and wrong are moral terms. Doing the "right thing" isn't always "good", and can often have negative consequences.
