As time progresses and civilization gets more advanced humans continue to develop new ways to increase the quality of life.

Linnaeus The Binomaical Nomenclature And Ethical Issues - 462 words
In the early 18th century, bluebells were bluebells, it didn't matter where they came from, when they bloomed or what their leaves looked like -- if the flowers were blue, that was pretty much good enough. By the same token, mushrooms were mushrooms, some were palatable, some were offensive and some would induce death, but they were all mushrooms. Swedish botanist Carl von Linn, better known as Linnaeus, recognized how the casual terminology of his time couldn't accurately name the species of Europe, much less the discoveries in the New World. As a result of his sincere love for plants, he developed the system of classifying organisms by kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and speci ...

Ethical Egoism - 1,079 words
Ethical Egoism, like all other moral philosophical theories, tries to develop a comprehensive set of rules by which each person should govern their lives. Instead of approaching each daily decision separately and interpreting the correct response, philosophers try to find an overall nucleus of rules that will guide each person in their daily lives. This is obviously not an easy task. Ethical egoism tries to solve the problem in terms of maximizing ones individual good. Many people would say that being concerned with your own personal good is simply the definition of selfishness, but with an understanding of different types of egoism one can see that what might seem like selfishness is actual ...

The gray area is that it is in the self and best interest of B and K to liquidate each other in order to win the election. The black and white of the settle core ethics (it is wrong to kill) would judge of this gray area (self-interest); therefore one can assume that the gray area of liquidation is wrong.

Is Advertising Ethical - 1,153 words
Advertisers main purpose is to make consumers aware of new products and services and to persuade them to buy. Granted advertising does differ from the news and entertainment media, but that doesnt mean it should not have to follow similar ethical standards. Advertising, too, should be held to the truth, as many people take it at face value and gullibly believe all or most of what is said. Although it is true that we should learn how to interpret advertisings, it is not our responsibility to interpret an advertisements honesty and accuracy.

An Ethical Balance - 720 words
Holiness, sin, and life are repeatedly questioned throughout John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, particularly by the former preacher, Jim Casey. As a preacher, Casey only preaches what the bible states and he resigns from his occupation after he feels the urge to pursue life's true meaning and values of the individual - basically to make sense of the world he resides in. Casey closely resembles the character and motives of Jesus Christ, as he is enthused to uncover the answers to his wonders and doubts and begins to hold new beliefs of sacrificing the self to sustain the rights of society. All the while, questions concerning the ideas and beliefs of the world circulate through Jim Casey's ...

How Ethical Are The Gods In The Iliad? - 1,737 words
Ethics and morality are synonymous terms, both meaning customs in their original languages, Greek and Latin respectively. However, the Greek term ethics also implies character as opposed to its Latin counterpart referring to social customs. Ethike is descended from ethikos which, in turn from ethos which means character or nature. Ethos is the fundamental and distinctive characteristic of a group within its social context or period of time, typically expressed in its attitudes, habits or beliefs. Thus the ethical nature of the gods can be explored in two ways, from an Ancient Greek perspective, and from a modern perspective. However, this exploration from two perspectives violates the term e ...

Is Business Bluffing Ethical? - 1,600 words
Albert Carr stated that legality and profits are the only standard that people in business should follow.

For humans to consider the cloning of one another forces them all to question the very concepts of right and wrong.

Ethical Implications Of Human Cloning - 1,516 words
Cloning has been going on in the natural world for thousands of years. A clone is simply one living thing made from another, leading to two organisms with the same set of genes. In that sense, identical twins are clones, because they have identical DNA. Sometimes, plants are self-pollinated, producing seeds and eventually more plants with the same genetic code. When earthworms are cut in half, they regenerate the missing parts of their bodies, leading to two worms with the same set of genes. Any organism that reproduces asexually; produces a clone.

Relativism Versus Ethical Absolutism - 648 words
Relativism is the denial of any absolute or objective values (truth, moral goodness, beauty, etc.) and the affirmation of the individual, community or culture as the source of values.
