1. 1541 The Moral Stance on Ethical Vitalism.

The moral stance on ethical vitalism affirms that living organisms deserve respect for their intrinsic self-worth. Humans, therefore, must simply have a certain ethical code of behaviour toward nature. There approach to the living world must be life-centred, not human centred. This is the belief of Paul Taylor, who argues that the belief that human life is superior to any other living organism is flawed. While some of Taylor's assumptions have their own weakness, this essay will contend that his overall view is legitimate. There does need to be a moral stance on ethical vitalism. If there is not, then humans must concede their subjectivity in defining the worth of human and non-human life. 8.5 pgs. 13 f/c. 5b.

3. 1652 Cultural Relativism: Where Reason Fails Our Hearts.

Relativism, when considered from a theoretical perspective, may seem to be valid, we can at least say that in practice the common man almost always assumes that it is invalid, acting on the premise that there are, indeed, universal standards that must be upheld. We always seem to believe in our hearts that there are things that are simply 'right', that there are standards written in some kind of ontological stone beyond human creation. This paper identifies that for this reason, relativism faces a serious practical challenge whenever someone attempts to apply it in the world. Simply put, the practice may hold up theoretically, but it radically fails to meet the standards in our hearts, our instinctual awareness of the 'right' path, which insists that a strict relativism cannot possible be true. 3 pgs. 0 f/c. 0b.

5. 2800 On Pluralism and Justice: A Defense of Post-Modernism.

This paper is an analysis on the topic of justice. In this analysis, a number of figures will be examined including Charles Taylor and William Connolly. Using some of the arguments and concerns presented by Jacques Derrida, it will be argued that 'deconstruction' rather than construction (Taylor and Connolly) can be understood as a form of justice, and further, it reflects the general tenets or principles of 'pluralism' and 'difference'. The focus of the analysis in this sense, will be directed toward understanding how Taylor and Connolly's respective frameworks represent some of the traditional 'metaphysical' bias' which have informed a number of political theories in the Western tradition. 12 pgs. 15 f/c. 3b.

  • Bibliography: 3 source(s) listed

7. 3875 An Analysis and Application of Virtue Ethics to the Treatment of Animals.

While today we talk of acts being good or bad often in reference to some ethical code or rule, if one were to read Plato or Aristotle one would find them assessing acts on the basis of their promotion of the good in individuals. The ethical theory under which the ancient Greek philosophers operated is now termed "virtue ethics". In order to better understand this complex mode of ethical judgement, this essay will describe in detail what it entails. Then, in order to better appreciate its significance, it will be applied to the question of the ethical treatment of animals in the modern world. Finally, on the basis of the description and application, an evaluation will be made of its value as an ethical theory. 5 pgs. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
