Module 7 Opening Discussion

22 unread replies.22 replies.

Purpose

The purpose of the Opening Discussion is to allow us to directly think about a philosophical question or problem without the bias that might result from prior knowledge of the ideas and arguments of important philosophers.

This direct approach to a philosophical question or problem sets the stage for our inquiry into the philosophical theories and arguments covered in the module. It furthermore is the first step toward a greater self-awareness of our own individual intellectual biases and assumptions.

The Opening Discussion MUST be completed at the beginning of the module during the timeframe specified in the course calendar. Please make sure to carefully follow the directions provided and adhere to the deadlines specified in the course calendar.

Directions

Click on ‘Reply’ to create your Opening Discussion POST in response to the prompts below. In your post, please address the following:

  1. Do you think there are certain actions that are always morally wrong, regardless of culture, context, consequences, etc.? If so, please explain what you think makes these actions morally wrong (for everyone, under any and all circumstances). If not, how can we make moral decisions, then? Please make sure to provide concrete examples and carefully explain your reasoning.
  2. Do you think that the ‘end justifies the means’? That the outcome (result, consequences) of a moral decision justifies or outweighs the possibly problematic *action* necessary to obtain this outcome? In a trivial example, you might (or not) condone lying in order not to hurt someone’s feelings: ‘No, honey, you don’t look fat in these jeans.’ Please make sure to provide concrete examples and carefully explain your reasoning.

Respond to at least two of your classmates. In order to respond to a classmate, open the classmate’s post and click ‘Reply’. Carefully explain why you agree or disagree with their examples of inherently wrong actions or how the end justifies the means. Make sure to be specific and carefully explain your reasoning.

You must create your POST before you can reply to your classmates. Therefore, you should create your POST a day or two before the discussion deadline.

Your initial post should be about 200-300 words in length, and your responses to classmates should each be about 100-200 words in length, but feel free to be as detailed as you wish.

Your post and your responses must be written in proper English (correct spelling and grammar, and appropriate style). It is recommended to write your post and responses using a word processing program and copy and paste the completed post and responses. This will avoid losing work in case of internet outage, etc. You are encouraged to comment on your classmate’s feedback to your initial post and keep the (civilized!) discussion going.

*After writing the initial post , I will provide you with two of my classmates posts , as it part of the assignment
