Underground Man Wasted Life Views
693 wordsFyodor Dostoevsky's novel, NOTES FROM THE UNDERGROUND, has held many labels, such as being a case history of necrosis or a specimen of modern tragedy. The most popular label it has obtained however, is being the author's defense of individualism. The novel is writen as a performance, part triad, part memoir, by a nameless personage who claims to be writing for himself but consistently manipulates the reader -- of whom he is morbidly aware -- to the point where there seems to be no judgement the ...

Respect For Persons Human Subjects
671 wordsThe success of this resolution of the ethical dilemma has been both criticized and defended by many. In particular, some argue that it is rarely the case that reasons to favor one therapy are in fact evenly balanced by reasons to favor an alternative. In fact, new studies are initiated precisely because a new therapy appears promising. So, while the concept of equipoise may work in theory, it is rarely satisfied in practice. Others augment this critique by pointing out that what matters ethicall...

Death Penalty Chicago Tribune
664 wordsIn the article from Chicago Tribune of February 14, 2002, the situation with the death penalty and juvenile crime is discussed.

Brave New World Designer Drugs
1,785 wordsBrave New World (1932) is one of the most insidious works of literature ever written. An exaggeration? Tragically, no. Brave New World has come to serve as the false symbol for any regime of universal happiness. For sure, Huxley was writing a satirical piece of fiction, not scientific prophecy. Hence to treat his writing as ill-conceived futurology rather than a work of great literature might seem to miss the point. Yet the knee-jerk response of Its Brave New World! to any blueprint for chemical...

Justify Giving Less Consideration Giving Less Consideration Moral
