Because epistemology requires a “something to be” and ontology provides the basis for that “something” a partnership between the two is formed (Vasilachis de Gialdino, 2009). All aspects of knowledge are in scope and focus for people studying epistemology. What is knowledge? How it is gained and used? Can it be known completely?
1. Does Jeff Ballinger have convincing argument about Nike? I think that Mr. Ballinger does have a convincing argument but I wonder is ethical approach to singling out Nike instead of focusing on foreign labor practices as a whole. Through his research and findings he compiles an interesting case about the abuse of foreign workers; however, he fails to mention that these practices are not limited to Nike alone. By not mentioning other companies that use the same tactics, he puts a negative image on Nike alone instead of all American companies who choose to outsource manufacturing to foreign countries.
Dropping a bomb is bad, but at the same time he was the president and he was going to do what he thought was right. The fact that he dropped a bomb on Nagasaki means that he is down to business and he means exactly what he says. After the President bombed Nagasaki, he says: [ii]“ Having found the bomb, we have used it . . .young Americans.” President Truman did these bombings because he was not thinking about himself, but he was thinking about others.
Ethical Lens Peter Urrutia Gen200 September 19, 2012 Timothy Harrington Ethical Lens This course has encouraged the use of an ethics game that determines what an individual’s particular ethical outlook is. The ethical lens looks at a couple of specific categories preferred lens, blind spots, strengths, weaknesses, values, and results of behavior.

The scientists are the ones that know best about the bomb, they were the ones that built and designed it. If even they are trying to stop the bomb from being dropped. They say it would be an “indiscriminate destruction upon mankind” and that it shouldn’t be dropped, then why did the U.S. drop it? It was a decision that was not well thought out, and it should not have been
It seems that either most Americans do not have the stomach for it or they seem to believe that sympathy for terrorists is somehow a moral virtue. Sometimes you have to do wrong thing for the right reason. Shooting someone with a gun, for example, is normally an ugly thing that is awful to think about. However, if a police officer shoots someone with a gun in order to protect an innocent person we not only justify it but thank god, that it was done. For instance if our government captures a terrorist that has planted a nuclear bomb in New York City.
It’s widely acknowledged that there are some values in adversity and calamity. However, some people may not essentially perceive the profound impacts from where they tumbled. Because of the disappointment from their struggles, they just choose to blindly accept their hardships instead of recognizing the benefits that can result from misfortune. **don’t support the other side** Ultimately, it’s manifest that the individuals who find value in adversity eventually achieve success. To begin, Thomas Edison, a famous American inventor, epitomizes the idea that people can truly benefit from hardship and misfortune.

I believe that if the creature were made today then Victor's creation would bring about a prestigious Nobel Prize because it is, without a doubt, very advanced science.

This brings to attention that we need to realize that all our actions have consequences whether they are good or
