Paragraph 2 Based on your “preferred ethical lens” why this is important to you? Everyone should be treated with equality because no person is better than they other. Paragraph 3 What course of action would you take? How do your actions relate to your values? Relationship Lens: 1.
ETHICAL LENS INVENTORY Ethical lens Inventory is used as a way to identify what values are more important to us as an individual.The inventory allows us to see ethical issues clearly whenever we have ethical dilemma without clear option/choice and it also helps to learn how to resolve them better.People have different priorities and different values helps to respect each others point of views. There are four primary ethical perspectives. Two of them are to help us to determine using Rationality(critical thinking ) are: 1)Rights&Responsibility Lens:you use your rationality to how to live with universal rules. 2)Relationship Lens:Its about equality of community so that everybody gets treated fairly. The other two of the ethical lenses are using your Sensibility (Intuition) which means using your intuition and emotions for our behavior to be ethical are : 1)Results Lens:using your sensibility to decide your decisions which will make you happy and adds more happiness to your life.
I believe that ethics are very important in creating the moral fiber of each and every individual. When you are young you are taught the basics, such as stealing is bad, cheating is wrong, and you should always tell the truth and many of us try to live by this simple rules. We must also remember that not everyone believes that ethics is based on reasoning but on emotions and intuition. There are many different believes about ethical living I believe that to live ethically you just need to sit a standard for the way you want to live and the way you want to be treated. Allowing any one to belittle you or your beliefs is unethical.
The ways that the ethical lenses differ are: the Rights and Responsibilities Lens emphasizes autonomy and rationality; in other words using your head. The Results Lens emphasizes autonomy and sensibility; in other words using your heart and intuition. There is also the Reputation Lens and this emphasizes equality and sensibility. And lastly, there is the Relationship Lens which emphasizes equality and rationality. My Preferred Ethical Lens: My preferred ethical lens is the Relationship Lens because it highlights equality and rationality.
Ethics Awareness Inventory Analysis THE ACCEPTABLE PLATFORM OF ETHICAL ANALYSIS IS TO FOCUS ON IMPROVING THE WELL-BEING OF INDIVIDUALS. ESTABLISHING AN INDIVIDUAL’S MORAL THOUGHT PROCESS CAPABILITIES IS VITAL BECAUSE AS HUMAN BEINGS THERE IS A SOLID PROPENSITY REGARDING BIGOTRY, SELFISHNESS, AND SELF-ABSORPTION. IN MANY INSTANCES, PROFESSIONAL ETHICS IN ORGANIZATIONS CONFLICTS WITH HIS OR HER PERSONAL ETHICS. PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL VIEWS FROM MY PERSONAL ETHICAL PERSPECTIVE, IT IS A DUTY OR AN OBLIGATION TO DO EVERYTHING WITHIN HIS OR HER POWER TO STRIVE TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT. PERSONAL ETHICS STRUCTURE PERSONAL DECISIONS AND BEHAVIORS, AND PROVIDE A GUIDE POST FOR MORAL ACTIONS (RUGGIERO, 2008).
It says that my gift is compassion and that is true because I am compassionate about the things I want and am trying to accomplish in life and I show compassion towards others and their problems. The Ethical Lens said that I define an ethical person as one with sound character traits and habits of thoughtful reflection. It also said that I believe that those who demonstrate strong leadership in their roles and who encourage others to do the same exemplify ethical behavior. I would have to agree with this assessment because I definitely expect others to display this type of ethical behavior. Though I know this is expected of people, I am however, not nieve to how people can really be.
Next on the basis of James Rachel’s argument against ethical egoism will try to answer the question posed. This essay will also discuss the common sense view is the most appropriate way to act in most of the cases. Ethical Egoism is a normative theory, a theory which states how one should behave. It states that promotion of one’s own good is in accordance with morality. In other way we can state that it is always moral to promote self-interest and it is not moral not to promote it.
The Similarities and Differences of Ethical Theories Mike Dyer ETH/316 November 18, 2013 Michelle Clark-Washington The Similarities and Differences of Ethical Theories There are many types of theories that coincide with virtues, values, and moral concepts to help one decide on what is right and wrong. I will be discussing the similarities and differences between three types of theories and how each theory addresses ethics and morality. These theories are virtue theory, utilitarianism, and deontological ethics. Similarities Society, and we as individuals, want to achieve a common goal with ethics and morality. That goal is to do what is morally right, if it be through pleasure to avoid pain.
In Stephen Hicks’s ‘Rand’s Ethical Theory: Reason and Ethics’, Rand focuses on several human virtues or values as the basis for her theory of ethical egoism. Furthermore, he states that in Rand’s view, the following virtues are central to the life of an ethical human being: rationality, productiveness, honesty, independence, integrity, justice, selfishness and pride. I find that the more I read about and from Rand, the more I tend to agree with her opinions and understand her. At first glance, her views might seem too extreme or too critical- or at least, that is how I conceived them. However, I am starting to comprehend her point of view and see things through her perspective more clearly (especially after watching her interview with Mike Wallace).
Ethics can be influenced by one’s culture, background, and environment. Ethical behavior can be taught but that does not mean one is ethical. I believe how an individual conducts himself when faced with an ethical dilemma is what makes him who he is. An ethical dilemma is defined as “Situations concerning right and wrong where values are in conflict” either for the individual or for the organization (Trevino & Nelson, 2007, p. 3). Through these interactions people can learn and continue to grow in respect to their ethical beliefs.
