order to save a friend from a murderer.
188.8.131.52.1 If we compare Deontologists with Consequentialists we can see
that Consequentialists begin by considering what things are good,
and identify 'right' actions as the ones that produce the maximum
of those good things.
184.108.40.206.1.1 Deontologists appear to do it the
other way around; they first
consider what actions are 'right'
and proceed from there.

2 Ways to be Ethical
2.1 The Scream
2.1.1 Experience of personal response
22.214.171.124 Example: You're stopped at a red light on a snowy day.
You see a car going full speed about to make a
right turn, as the car attempts to brake & turn he
slides & hits a light pole. Your adrenaline kicks in,
your heart starts pounding & before you know it
you're jumping out of your car running towards the
car to help the man.
126.96.36.199.1 The sound of the car
crashing caught your
attention, forcing you to
beware of your responsibility
to another person.
2.2 The Beggar
2.2.1 Experience of the other
188.8.131.52 Example: You're at a grocery store & you see a
woman at the cash not able to pay for her
groceries. She starts asking people around her
to spare some change. You see that people
around her are ignoring her, so you go up to
her give her some change.
184.108.40.206.1 A lot of things go through your mind when you first seeing
her ask for change. As you try to forget ignore her the
thought of her is stuck in your head. So you decide to do the
right thing & give her change.
2.3 "I have to..."
2.3.1 Experience of obligation
220.127.116.11 Example: Your friend lets you borrow some clothes &
tells you to bring them back before Friday. You find out
that there's a party on Saturday & want to wear one of
18.104.22.168.1 You have an obligation to bring back the
shirts at the right time because your friend
trusted you in the first place with them.
2.4 This is intolerable
2.4.1 Experience of contrast
22.214.171.124 Example: You see a mother at the
park with 3 children. The children
aren't listening very well so the
mother decides to hit them hard.
126.96.36.199.1 You are shocked because the terrible act
done by the mother contrasts strongly with
what expected from people in your
3.1 Deals with the nature of the good,
human person & criteria. We use
these for making the right choices &
3.1.1 An elderly couple owns a little corner store.
One day you go in for a juice box which only
comes out to 2$. You pay with a 5$ bill. You
should get back 3$ but instead the owner gives
you back almost double. What do you do?
188.8.131.52 You go through a critical thought process. You come to a
conclusion that the elderly couple probably rely on the
stores income to pay bills so you return the change!
4.1 Right conduct based on fundamental beliefs & obligation
4.1.1 To follow certain codes,norms,customs &
habits of behaviour
184.108.40.206 Religion shapes your morals. Is what your about to do
going against your religion?
220.127.116.11.1 For example abortion. You may think
you know what you're going to do but
it may be going against your religion
not to get one.
18.104.22.168.1.1 I wouldn't get one because it
would be going against my
religion & what i believe in.
