I use my rationality to determine how I can ensure equality to all others. I learned that my blind spot is I trust too much in just outcomes for everything. I tend to forget that although every person should have equal access, not everyone does. Even though I want everything to be fair, I know it is not and I often rely on ethical decisions to come up with a fair system. We all have our strengths and weaknesses.
The not so great this about this is that even if your intentions are good you tend to forget that not everyone thinks like you and is clear on their own sense of values. Believing that you are doing the right thing justifies on what other people’s opinions are. My strengths and weaknesses are that I can not help but to feel damaged whenever I see something going on around me that I can not naturally fix myself. However, a strength is that I look at it as a challenge and make my best effort to over come that challenge and help others even if others do not agree with my process in doing
Simpler questions would be “Is Dr. Smith’s intentional practise of omitting important information relevant to his client’s treatment ethical?” or “Is Dr. Smith’s failure to report his client’s actions to the authorities morally justifiable?” Both would be good questions, but I believe the question the study guide asks us to consider embrace both of these questions. The possible answers to the question are “yes” or “no”. I will be using rule-based utilitarianism and Kantian deontology to analyse this case study. There is not enough information to consider act-based utilitarianism: Act-based utilitarianism essentially says that one should perform that act which will bring about the greatest amount of good (“happiness”) over bad for everyone affected by the act. Each situation and each person must be assessed on their own merits (Thiroux, 2004, p. 42).
Appiah also asserts that both positivism and relativism cannot support the idea of cosmopolitanism because the definition of cosmopolitanism is that every humanity should belongs in to one community, in this community, people respect and communicate with each other in moral way. Everybody shares their thoughts and form a group. Although positivism dose respect each other, their ethics are only judge by right or wrong. As Appiah mentioned that “if relativism about ethics and morality were true, then, at the end of many discussions, we would each have to end up saying, from where I stand, I am right. From where you stand, you are right.”(26) But everyone has different feelings, different perspectives to view different things.
Explanation why person - centred values are important and how they influence social care work. A care worker need to be able to understans the importance of promoting the following values at all times and these values underpin the whole of health adn social care. Individuality Everybody involved in the care of individuals need to get to know about the needs of people from different ethnic and religious groups and also about people's beliefs and preferences. This value is important because by paying attention to these things, we can show respect and preserve individuals dignity. It influences social care work, because when we are caring for someone we have to be able to recognise that everybody is different and we must not impose our preferences to them.
People also have the ability to think morally for themselves so morality is relative to someone’s point of view. The main point favoring the cultural relativism argument is that if there are no moral principles, then the principles can only be relative to culture. If someone were to express their opinion about the morals of a culture that they didn’t agree with, including what the culture already believed to be right, then that person would lose the argument without any question. This can be easily disproved because in one culture, not every person is going to have the same moral judgments about what is right or wrong and people can establish objective moral principles. A culture also can’t think of them as having the power to decide which is right and
Due to the many different types of cultures, each culture seems to judge other cultures. Therefore, most think their culture is the best and are not open minded to consider other cultures being acceptable. This leads to people becoming ethnocentric. It is important not to judge others without any prior knowledge of their history or heritage. If society would take the time to learn about the things that are unfamiliar, the understanding of others would be more prevalent.
The whole world population can be divided into two categories based on how people view the world as people with scarcity mindset and those who have abundance mindset. Scarcity mentality is the cause behind all fear based actions whereas abundance mentality is what gives rises to the actions that are based on love. Both type of thinking is actually two sides of the same coin, it is not necessary that you will fall into one category based on your thoughts about one particular area or phase of your life, we all accept one of these mindsets depending on our life situations, but by knowing it you can deliberately get to the right side by changing your attitude towards life. Feelings of lack of love, money, good health, etc. keeps on affecting our
If one person’s happiness comes from something that I don’t believe in, I don’t believe it is my right to tell him/her it’s wrong. I have basic opinions of what I believe in regard to specific groups, like in politics or in faith, but I can’t say that one set of beliefs is the right one. I am not quick to judge others’ worldviews. I know that others think and act differently than me and I am very accepting of that. The things that make us differ from each other are healthy for our society because society is based off of the fact that each person is unique and can attribute something different to make it better.
Covey makes it clear that one must make a "paradigm shift" which causes us to perceive things differently. Covey says that although most people want to be effective, they are unwilling to examine the way they view things. Our paradigms will affect the way we interact with others. A person’s character ethic is a primary traits and those of personality ethic are secondary. Our character is a compilation of all our habits.
