He is well known for his best selling books The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason and its follow-up Letter to a Christian Nation.

He is the co-founder and CEO of Project Reason, a nonprofit devoted to spreading scientific knowledge and secular values in society. Harris has a new book coming out in November – The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values. A fact-based morality. This conflicts with ideas of moral relativism and god-given morality, or “objective morality.”. I think his arguments are important.

By Ian Mutibwa Posted Wednesday, May 21 2014 at 01:00 In Summary The rush for laws on morality drives the fundamental questions that I believe trouble many minds: Are laws and morality one and the same. The Ninth Parliament of Uganda has churned out all possible laws to curb “moral decadence” in Uganda. The rush for laws on morality drives the fundamental questions that I believe trouble many minds: Are laws and morality one and the same. Can we separate laws from morals. Is a law on morals necessary. The issue of bundling laws with morality has been debated for centuries but it is mainly proposed by natural law scholars. This school thus propones that laws and morals go hand in hand and the law should be used to shape morals as the morals guide the laws enacted. However, some critics of this approach on law and morality suggest that “we cannot legislate morality.” They argue that no nation in th...

A moral dilemma can be described as a situation in which a choice has to be made, but the choices require an action that goes again the principles with which we have been raised. Therefore, one is placed in a position where a decision has to be made on whether making the choice, or leaving it altogether. However, the question arises from the premise that morality is not palpable, yet, holds strongly to our entire thought processes and choice-making. Hence, the dilemma is create...

Characteristic #18: Moral Courage. By. Douglas Satterfield. October 5, 2013. 19 Comments.  The photograph accompanying this article is famous in many respects. It is a photo taken June 6, 1944 of the Omaha Beach landing during World War II. It is used to symbolically represent courage. More accurately it is symbolic of physical courage. Â. Moral courage, on the other hand, is more difficult to show symbolically and is why I used this photograph. Â. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.Â.            – Edmund Burk, Irish orator, philosopher, and politician Â. In this famous quote, Edmund Burk goes directly to the heart of the concept of a failure in moral courage. Â. He is saying that evil in the world comes from ignorance or acts of omission, the failure to take action, the failure to observe, and perhaps even of good intentions – as much as it may come from willful evil. Â. Moral Courage itself is the courage to take action for moral reasons despite the...

Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Tax Reform by Leslie Carbone Posted on December 3, 2009. by Bob Livingston. Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Tax Reform by Leslie Carbone. America’s income tax system is a visionless policy that has reduced a free people to moral slaves, squabbling over goodies. This is Leslie Carbone’s view as posited in her book, Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Tax Reform. The book is a history lesson of American tax policy. “Progressive taxation and redistributed spending policies encourage laziness among both those who are taxed and those who are given,” Carbone writes. Beyond the daily laziness of simply not working, or working less, there is the more dangerous moral laziness of not taking responsibility for one’s own life. Finally, Carbone presses her case that the tax system cannot be reformed, but must be torn down and rebuilt. Bob Livingston ...

*  Gratuitous Evil and Moral Discernment | Reasonable Faith
Gratuitous Evil and Moral Discernment. Reasonable Faith. Home. Q A. Gratuitous Evil and Moral Discernment. #324 July 01, 2013. Gratuitous Evil and Moral Discernment. Dear Dr. Craig, I should admit upfront that I am an atheist, as well as a Nietzschean and a deep moral sceptic. I find Hume's Is-Ought Gap convincing and, while I do not deny that I have moral feelings, I think it is more sensible to explain them as human psychological experience, not as "perceptions" of objective moral norms. My question is about your response to the problem of gratuitous natural evil. In your debate with Walter Sinnott-Armstrong you responded to his hypotheticals about babies dying of painful diseases by saying that we lack the full scope of understanding to evaluate the moral rightness of God's non-intervention. Your argument makes perfect sense. We lack God's omniscience so we cannot judge whether allowing a baby to die of a horrible disease will somehow prevent a terrible evil or enable a great good. In fact, there are proba...

*  Morality and religion
... 'Morality and religion' is the relationship between religious views and morals. Other observers assert that moral behavior does not rely on religious tenets, and secular commentators point to ethical challenges within various religions that conflict with contemporary social norms. Relationship between religion and morality Religious frameworks Religion and social dimensions Criticism of religious values Secular morality See also Notes References. Relationship between religion and morality. For example, 'The Westminster Dictionary of Christian Ethics' says that, For many religious people, morality and religion are the same or inseparable; for them either morality is part of religion or their religion is their morality. Thomas Dixon states, "Religions certainly do provide a framework within which people can learn the difference between right and wrong.". Phil Zuckerman's 2008 book, 'Society without God', notes that Denmark and Sweden, "which are probably the least religious countries in the world, and poss...

What are the do's and dont's of the Church in relation to contraception in the age of AIDS and other social and moral issues. In an exclusive interview with 'Neos Kosmos', the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia, His Eminence Arch bishop Stylianos explains the Church's public silence on these and other issues as well as how the Church, which claims to be the original successor to Christ's Apostolic church, deals with modem realities.

... Atheist Ethicist. A view of right and wrong, good and evil, in a universe without gods. Saturday, October 31, 2009. Evolution's Morality. Yesterday, I discussed some issues that I had with the concept of "God's Morality," Today, I want to talk about some of the same types of problems that exist in a different set of moral theories - those theories that, instead of speaking about God's Morality, speak instead about Evolution's Morality. Both theories have pretty much the same problems. A member of the studio audience pointed me to a posting in Pharyngula on this topic. See: Pharyngula: Marc hauser - Where Do Morals Come From. One of the themes was how people resolve moral dilemmas. He began with a real world example, the story of an overweight woman in South Africa who insisted on joining a tour exploring a cave, and got stuck in the exit tunnel, trapping 22 people behind her.

From the nonsense that regularly spews from the mouth of rappers like Lil Wayne to the black-on-black violence that continues to plague many black urban and rural neighborhoods, we are moving further away from King’s dream. Did MLK die so that young black males could sabotage their lives and the lives of others in their neighborhoods. Moreover, what continues to baffle many of us is the curious absence of a discussion about the promotion of moral values in low-income communities as a way to undermine the mass incarceration epidemic in the black community because of the government’s failed drug policies. Maria Lloyd, Business Manager for Your Black World Network, recently wrote a column outlining a few of the social consequences of the mass incarceration of African American men resulting from failed federal drug pol...

Mortality of Morality. Divya Manian. Divya Manian. twitter RSS Feed Youtube Channel Github. Feb 12 2010. Mortality of Morality. There is a perception among many people that moral codes are permanent, that, what now is morally right will remain so eternally. My assertion which Wikipedia calls Moral Skepticism is that morality meanders with time. You only need to read the religious texts of several religions to see how common the moral codes are. 100 years ago, almost every state or region had a different moral code, but thanks to colonial globanization, most countries now share the what-was-then-Christian view of equality and human rights. Some European countries have become more liberal legal drug use, gay rights, etc, and the world seems to be moving towards a uniform liberal moral code. Thanks to the internet, these liberal moral codes have spread a lot faster than before. Iran s protests are an example of how moral codes are getting impacted with technology. If anything, technology has made us complacent a...

Once we have deliberated and formed judgments about what is right or wrong, good or bad, these judgments tend to have a marked hold on us. Although in the end, we do not always behave as we think we ought, our moral judgments typically motivate us, at least to some degree, to act in accordance with them.

Abstract This paper examines accounts of the moral wrongness of killing persons in addition to determining what conclusions, if any, can be drawn from the morality of killing persons about the in equality of persons, and vice versa.

He also explores situations when moral choices may not be so straightforward. Questions include:. Throughout the 20h century, truth was considered to be relative. My truth is different from your truth. Does that approach make sense. If we were to devise a moral code, what would be a good starting place: the yamas and niyamas of the yogic teachings, the 10 Commandments.

*  There has to be an absolute morality - Think Atheist
... Get Started Now. Sign In. If values aren't really arbitrary, then there is an absolute morality. Order is very rigid, so when you build a concept like a moral system on it, like all concepts should be built, it is going to lead to absolute results. My argument is that values aren't arbitrary, thus there is an absolute morality. Absolute morality has to exist because the base foundation for morality is order, which enables it to have structure as a social concept. This means that even as a concept, it has to have an absolute and most perfect form as a social concept. It is conceptual. Tags: Morality Like 1 member likes this. Reply to This.

*  Moral Equivalent of War speech (Carter)
Moral Equivalent of War speech Carter. Moral Equivalent of War speech Carter. 'President Jimmy Carter's Moral Equivalent of War Speech' was a speech in which United States President Jimmy Carter addressed the United States on April 18, 1977. It is remembered as the speech where he compared the energy crisis with the "moral equivalent of war". He said the goal was to reduce dependence on oil imports and "Cut in half the portion of United States oil which is imported, from a potential level of 16 million barrels to six million barrels a day.". Carter may have used the phrase "moral equivalent of war" from the classic essay "The Moral Equivalent of War" derived from the speech given by American psychologist and philosopher William James, delivered at Stanford University in 1906, in which "James considered one of the classic problems of politics: how to sustain political unity and civic virtue in the absence of war or a credible threat..." and "...sounds a rallying cry for service in the interests of the indivi...

Ethics. Ethics. ETHICS. It has been stated that the term “moral turpitude” is so clear that there is no duty on the trial judge to define it in the absence of a request. The term has been defined in Georgia as follows: “Turpitude in its ordinary sense involves the idea of inherent baseness or vileness, shameful wickedness, depravity with respect to a person’s duty to another or to society in general. In its legal sense it includes everything contrary to justice, honesty, modesty or good morals.” “All crimes of falsehood or crimes of deceit involve turpitude; but it is not safe to declare that such crimes are the only ones involving turpitude. State, the court said that a crime involving moral turpitude is one that is wrong in itself rather than wrong because it is prohibited by law. In Georgia, the test for whether a felony is one involving moral turpitude is “does the, disregarding its felony punishment, meet the test as being contrary to justice, honesty, modesty, good morals or man’s duty to man?”.

*  Invertebrate minds
So perhaps it is the capacity to feel rather than the capacity to think that makes a creature worthy of our concern. In which case only a creature that is capable of desire, and of having its desires frustrated, is an appropriate object of sympathy. In which case the fact that someone undergoes states of suffering of the sort that makes him an appropriate object of sympathy isn’t sufficient, by itself, to show that sympathy and moral concern are required of us. The main claim of this section is surely established: the fact that a creature is subject to states of frustrated desire that make it an appropriate in the sense of ‘possible’ object of sympathy and moral concern doesn’t, by itself, entail that sympathy is required of us, or that the suffering of the creature makes any sort of moral claim on us. Do most people then think that insects and spiders make no moral claims on us because and only because they believe that invertebrates don’t have minds. Once such people come to believe that some invertebrates,...

*  CHRISTIAN MORAL PRINCIPLES : Chapter 12: Moral Judgment in Problematic Situations
For instance, a pregnant woman is diagnosed as having cancer of the uterus. Treatment of the disease is likely to result in the death of her child; nontreatment, in the spread of the disease and the woman s death after the delivery of the child. At first glance, both treatment and nontreatment seem justifiable in view of the goods sought and unjustifiable in view of the harms expected. The clarification of the moral act began by noticing that in cases of this sort, the same act has two effects, one good and the other bad. Thus if one s precise purpose is to destroy, damage, or impede some basic human good, the deed carrying out this purpose could not be justified by the principle. The treatment of the cancer itself is not a bad act. Moreover, whatever harm comes to the child is not a means to the good sought by the treatment. Thus the case is unlike one in which a pregnant woman has a medically indicated but not urgently necessary hysterectomy removal of uterus despite her pregnant condition, thus bringing ab...

Ancient Greek ethics. Socrates, as portrayed in Plato 's 'Republic', articulates the greatest good as the transcendent "form of good itself". Republic, Book VI The good, Socrates says, is like the sun. The pursuit of and love of the good itself rather than any particular good thing Socrates thought was the chief aim of education and especially of philosophy. The Greeks found this paradoxical, but Socrates both argued and lived this philosophy consistently. Aristotle's highest good was not the good itself but goodness embodied in a flourishing human life. His ethics are based on 'eudaimonia', variously translated as "happiness," "prosperity," "flourishing," or "success." A "great-souled"...

*  Moral hazard
... occurs under a type of information asymmetry where the risk-taking party to a transaction knows more about its intentions than the party paying the consequences of the risk. Moral hazard also arises in a principal–agent problem, where one party, called an agent, acts on behalf of another party, called the principal. The agent usually has more information about his or her actions or intentions than the principal does, because the principal usually cannot completely monitor the agent. Still, because there were many buyers of these loans or of pools of these loans willing to take on that risk, the originators did not concern themselves with the potential long-term consequences of making these loans. After selling the loans, the originators bore none of the risk so there was little to no incentive for the originators to investigate the long-term value of the loans. Lending institutions need to take risks by making loans, and usually the most risky loans have the potential for making the highest return. In on...

The Future We Get Is Up To Us. These right-wingers will not stop at banning abortion the end of Roe v. In fact, anyone who debates on the topic of abortion will inevitably be drawn to the topic of artificial contraception over and over again, especially in the post-Roe era of pro-life activism....How does contraception lead to abortion. It means going back to a morality that cuts women off from acting in the larger society, contributing all they can to that, and living full lives as productive human beings in every sphere and independent from men. The mass access to birth control and abortion has undermined religious doctrine and traditional morality that subordinated women for centuries. The morality that should be supported and fought for is one that values the rights of women to lead full social lives. This morality sees children as a joy to society, and as ultimately the responsibility of all society, while not compelling anyone in any way to have children against their will. in Iraq, and self-righteously...

*  .. Of Jesus, The Woman Caught In Adultery, Public Morality, The Law – And The Consequences Of Ign
It is simply a fact that every single law presupposes somebody’s view of morality. Any law that says “X is wrong and the consequences are therefore Y” or “You must do X and the penalty for not doing X is Y” are invariably based on somebody’s view as to what is right and what is wrong. You simply cannot avoid “legislating morality”; it is only a question as to whose morality ought to be legislated. On issues such as abortion, or prostitution, or homosexual marriage, or narcotics crimes, I do not accept the argument that would be legislating my moral view and that doing so is somehow wrong for me to do. That is because 1 the other side is equally legislating ITS  moral view, and if the other side has a right to legislate its morality than I certainly have just as much right to legislate mine.

*  Questions and Answers on Catholic Marital Sexual Ethics
If an act is immoral due to a bad intention, the same type of act may be moral with a good intention. Intrinsically evil acts are always immoral, and are never justified by intention, or by circumstances, or by other knowingly chosen acts. To be moral, each and every knowingly chosen sexual act must have three good fonts of morality. All non-marital sexual acts are intrinsically evil and always gravely immoral because these acts lack the marital meaning, which is required by God for sexual acts to be moral. All non-marital sexual acts, all non-unitive sexual acts, and all non-procreative sexual acts are intrinsically evil and always gravely immoral. A knowingly chosen act is moral if it has three good fonts of morality intention, moral object, circumstances. In order to be moral, each and every knowingly chosen act must have a good intention, and a good moral object, and the good consequences must outweigh any bad consequences in the circumstances.

*  .. I Don’t Care if God Exists
I Don’t Care if God Exists. Religious believers like to think that I don’t accept the arguments for the existence of God because I don’t want to – because then I’d have to give up orgies and heroin and all the things that make an atheist’s life fun. 1 In fact, I’ve wondered roughly the same thing about certain atheist philosophers. But here’s the problem with that line of thinking. None of the usual arguments for the existence of God even try to prove the existence of a God whose existence would matter to me. The design argument. It aims to prove the existence of an intelligent, powerful, supernatural Creator. The design argument doesn’t say anything about whether this God cares about morality or humanity or which scriptures you prefer. Do I care if such a God exists. It makes not a bit of difference to my life or yours. The cosmological argument. In its most robust form, it aims to prove the existence of a supernatural, personal Creator. Again, the argument doesn’t say anything about whether this God knows ...

*  .. Meth and Moral Panics, Part Three .. Post navigation .. Points on Twitter .. Tags .. Archives .
Joe Spillane. Meth and Moral Panics, Part Three. May 27, 2011 May 27, 2011. jspillane. 1 Comment. Meth and Moral Panics, Part One and Part Two led us to the question of whether and how we ought to arbitrate the real in assessing the ‘disproportionate response’ that moral panics require. In this post, we’ll look at efforts to do just this with respect to methamphetamine in the contemporary United States, and conclude with three suggestions for refashioning the relationship of moral panic studies to actual behavior. An abundance of published works tie the methamphetamine response to the moral panic concept, most often in studies that don’t really fit the framework see my earlier post for more on this. Travis Linnemann’s fascinating examination of the gendered reporting of methamphetamine in the Midwest is a good example; in the end, he’s not really all that interested in arbitrating the real.

*  Famine, Affluence, and Morality
... '"Famine, Affluence, and Morality"' is an essay written by Peter Singer in 1971 and published in ' Philosophy and Public Affairs ' in 1972. It argues that affluent persons are morally obligated to donate far more resources to humanitarian causes than is considered normal in Western culture s. The essay was inspired by the starvation of Bangladesh Liberation War refugee s, and uses their situation as an example, although Singer's argument is general in scope. Précis Reception and criticism Quotations See also References Notes External links. Previously, this may hardly have been feasible, but it is quite feasible now. From the moral point of view, the prevention of the starvation of millions of people outside our society must be considered at least as pressing as the upholding of property norms within our society. "If it is in our power to prevent something bad from happening, without thereby sacrificing anything of comparable moral importance, then we ought, morally, to do it". Reception and criticism. S...

*  Alexander Pruss's Blog: Epistemic and moral reasons
Epistemic and moral reasons. Not epistemic for epistemic rationality is blind to non-epistemic bads, and hence either will automatically tell me to go with the epistemic good, which is not the right answer since epistemic goods do not outweigh all others, or will be unable to weigh the epistemic and non-epistemic goods and bads. Morality, thus, is able to weigh both the epistemic and the non-epistemic goods and bads. It seems, thus, that the question of what should I do simpliciter in a case like this is a question of moral normativity. And there are reasons relating to epistemic goods. March 25, 2010 at 8:48 AM. March 25, 2010 at 9:02 AM. If, on the other hand, epistemic rationality is objective and it is reasonable for people of the community to believe, even if such knowledge is not luminous, that Ann is dead or dying based on the physical facts of the impact of arsenic on the human body, then such epistemic rationality endorses a non-epistemic good, namely, attempting to save Ann s life.

*  Print Article for the National Catholic Register
As the Clinton presidency reached a crisis point in 1998, the President relied on religious language — and high-profile events with religious leaders — to explain his conduct to the American people. As scholars interested in religion and public life, we protest the manipulation of religion and the debasing of moral language in the discussion about presidential responsibility. We believe that serious misunderstandings of repentance and forgiveness are being exploited for political advantage. The resulting moral confusion is a threat to the integrity of American religion and to the foundations of a civil society. In particular, we are concerned about the distortion that can come by association with presidential power in events such as the Presidential Prayer Breakfast of September 11, 1998. 3 We are aware that certain moral qualities are central to the survival of our political system, among which are truthfulness, integrity, respect for the law, respect for the dignity of others, adherence to the...

*  History of Philosophy 58
Anthony Ashley Cooper Shaftesbury, the grandson of Locke's patron, and the author of Characteristicks of Men, Manners, Opinions, and Times, points out the consequences that follow from Locke's rejection of innate principles of morality, but instead of basing the morality of actions on innate principles he bases it on innate sentiment. Applying these principles to man, Shaftesbury defines the essence of morality as consisting in the proper balancing of the social and selfish impulses. There is no morality in "sensible creatures," because, although they may balance the impulse for the preservation of self with the interests of the species, they are incapable of reflecting on the nature of their impulses, or of perceiving the harmony which results when the social and the selfish impulses are properly balanced. The faculty of moral distinction is not, therefore, a rational faculty but an aesthetic sense, -- the power of perceiving harmony and beauty. By endeavoring to found a system of ethics on the observation o...

*  The Revolution in Manners and Morals
... A FIRST-CLASS REVOLT AGAINST THE accepted American order was certainly taking place during those early years of the Post-war Decade, but it was one with which Nikolai Lenin had nothing whatever to do. For the revolt of the younger generation was only the beginning of a revolution in manners and morals that was already beginning to affect men and women of every age in every part of the country. The principal remaining forces which accelerated the revolution in manners and morals were all 100 per cent American. Paris dressmakers predicted the return of longer skirts, the American stylists and manufacturers followed their lead, the stores bought the longer skirts and tried to sell them, but women kept on buying the shortest skirts they could find. At the beginning of the decade advertisers realized that it would have been suicidal to portray a woman smoking; within a few years, however, they ventured pictures of pretty girls imploring men to blow some of the smoke their way; and by the end of the decade bil...

*  These New Boots: In the debate on the ills and goods of aid...
... In the debate on the ills and goods of aid... The international aid community has a tendency to colonize, and this tendency is no less apparent in its moral debates where all too often it has shown signs of making all the moral problems of the world its own. In debates about humanitarian ethics, this has sometimes meant that relief agencies and their critics have tended to overstate the moral burden on humanitarianism perhaps because it is easier to accuse a relief agency than a warlord these days. But it should never be forgotten that relief agencies are always responding to the violence of others. The difficult moral choices faced by relief agencies usually come about as a result of the immoral choices already made by political leaders and other individuals and groups. In most situations, relief agencies inherit an already uneven moral playing-field. It would therefore be morally negligent if excessive agonizing by or about relief agencies the groaning of the white man and his burden shouted out the ac...

*  Freedom and Individual Rights in Medicine
... Health Care is Not a Right. by Leonard Peikoff 1993, updated with permission by Lin Zinser 2007. Most people who oppose socialized medicine do so on the grounds that it is moral and well-intentioned, but impractical; i.e., it is a noble idea--which just somehow does not work. I do not agree that socialized medicine is moral and well-intentioned, but impractical. Of course, it is impractical--it does not work--but I hold that it is impractical because it is immoral. This is not a case of noble in theory but a failure in practice; it is a case of vicious in theory and therefore a disaster in practice. I want to focus on the moral issue at stake. So long as people believe that socialized medicine is a noble plan, there is no way to fight it. You cannot stop a noble plan--not if it really is noble. The only way you can defeat it is to unmask it--to show that it is the very opposite of noble. Then at least you have a fighting chance. What is morality in this context. The American concept of it is officially s...

A slight majority of Canadians believe doctors should have the right to deny a patient a medical treatment based on moral or religious beliefs, the nation’s biggest medical licensing authority is discovering. More than 14,000 individuals have responded so far to an online poll conducted by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario as part of a review of its policy on doctors and Ontario’s human rights code. The unscientific “quick poll,” open to the public and members of the profession, asks whether physicians “should be allowed to refuse to provide a patient with a treatment or procedure because it conflicts with the physician’s religious or moral beliefs.”. Of those, 56 per cent support allowing doctors to restrict medical care based on their per...

With every episode, more and more layers have been peeled back from the dynamic between Orel and his father. S02E16 This was probably the most sitcomesque episode of Moral Orel so far; I think it could have played on network television without any issues, which is saying something for a series that has been challenged by the censors on more than one occasion. S02E13 Clay: Orel, you know you shouldn't upset your mother by coming home with dirty clothes, because then your mother talks to your father, and no one wants that. Perhaps nothing needed to be cut, but this was certainly one of the more sexually graphic episodes. First, the animation and effects keep improving with every subsequent episode, and this one had several moments where I was really impressed with what they were able to accomplish, especially with the dream-like meditation scenes: Orel's room disassembling and reassembling as he slips out of, and back into, reality was unlike anything the show has done before, and his encounter with a Buddha wh...

Is cloning human beings morally wrong? The basis for the one serious objection to cloning is that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. I sketch a fragment of moral theory to make sense of the objection. I then outline several ways in which it might be claimed that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. In particular, I look at various ideas connected with autonomy. I conclude that there is no basis to the claim that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. I therefore reject the claim that cloning human beings is morally wrong.  (+info)

(2/615) Genetics and the British insurance industry.

Genetics and genetic testing raise key issues for insurance and employment. Governmental and public concern galvanised the British insurance industry into developing a code of practice. The history of the development of the code, issues of genetic discrimination, access to medical information, consent and the dangers of withholding information and the impact on the equity of pooled risk are explored. Proactive steps by the Association of British Insurers suggest that moral reflection not legislation is the way forward.  (+info)

(3/615) Indigenous peoples and the morality of the Human Genome Diversity Project.

In addition to the aim of mapping and sequencing one human's genome, the Human Genome Project also intends to characterise the genetic diversity of the world's peoples. The Human Genome Diversity Project raises political, economic and ethical issues. These intersect clearly when the genomes under study are those of indigenous peoples who are already subject to serious economic, legal and/or social disadvantage and discrimination. The fact that some individuals associated with the project have made dismissive comments about indigenous peoples has confused rather than illuminated the deeper issues involved, as well as causing much antagonism among indigenous peoples. There are more serious ethical issues raised by the project for all geneticists, including those who are sympathetic to the problems of indigenous peoples. With particular attention to the history and attitudes of Australian indigenous peoples, we argue that the Human Genome Diversity Project can only proceed if those who further its objectives simultaneously: respect the cultural beliefs of indigenous peoples; publicly support the efforts of indigenous peoples to achieve respect and equality; express respect by a rigorous understanding of the meaning of equitable negotiation of consent, and ensure that both immediate and long term economic benefits from the research flow back to the groups taking part.  (+info)

(4/615) Moral concerns of different types of patients in clinical BRCA1/2 gene mutation testing.

PURPOSE: Implementing predictive genetic testing for a severe and common chronic disease such as breast cancer may raise unique ethical problems. Here we report on moral concerns experienced by patients in the setting of genetic counseling based on BRCA1/2 gene testing. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients were members of breast or breast/ovarian cancer families in a consecutive series of 100 families who received counseling at a familial cancer clinic. The patients' moral concerns were identified using the grounded theory approach in the qualitative analysis of verbal transcripts of 45 counseling sessions. Included were sessions with patients who had breast and ovarian cancer, as well as their male and female relatives, before and after the specific BRCA1/2 gene mutation was identified in the family, and before and after those who opted for mutation analysis were informed of their carrier status. RESULTS: There is an association of BRCA1/2 gene mutation carrier status and specific topics of moral concern. The moral preoccupations of patients with breast and ovarian cancer (probable carriers) related to their being instrumental in the detection of the specific mutation segregating in the family. The preoccupations of possible carriers concerned their own offspring. Individuals who tested positive (proven carriers) were concerned with issues of confidentiality. Patients who tested negative (proven noncarriers) were concerned with helping siblings and other relatives. CONCLUSION: Knowledge of the moral concerns of subjects in the study sample may help health care providers be aware of the moral concerns of their own patients. This report may also contribute to the debate on predictive testing for familial adult-onset diseases from the patient's perspective.  (+info)

(5/615) Equitable rationing of highly specialised health care services for children: a perspective from South Africa.

The principles of equality and equity, respectively in the Bill of Rights and the white paper on health, provide the moral and legal foundations for future health care for children in South Africa. However, given extreme health care need and scarce resources, the government faces formidable obstacles if it hopes to achieve a just allocation of public health care resources, especially among children in need of highly specialised health care. In this regard, there is a dearth of moral analysis which is practically useful in the South African situation. We offer a set of moral considerations to guide the macro-allocation of highly specialised public health care services among South Africa's children. We also mention moral considerations which should inform micro-allocation.  (+info)

(6/615) Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions.

The first part of this paper examines the practice of informed treatment decisions in the protective medical system in China today. The second part examines how health care professionals in China perceive and carry out their responsibilities when relaying information to vulnerable patients, based on the findings of an empirical study that I had undertaken to examine the moral experience of nurses in practice situations. In the Chinese medical ethics tradition, refinement [jing] in skills and sincerity [cheng] in relating to patients are two cardinal virtues that health care professionals are required to possess. This notion of absolute sincerity carries a strong sense of parental protectiveness. The empirical findings reveal that most nurses are ambivalent about telling the truth to patients. Truth-telling would become an insincere act if a patient were to lose hope and confidence in life after learning of his or her disease. In this system of protective medical care, it is arguable as to whose interests are being protected: the patient, the family or the hospital. I would suggest that the interests of the hospital and the family members who legitimately represent the patient's interests are being honoured, but at the expense of the patient's right to know.  (+info)

(7/615) In defence of medical ethics.

A number of recent publications by the philosopher David Seedhouse are discussed. Although medicine is an eminently ethical enterprise, the technical and ethical aspects of health care practices can be distinguished, therefore justifying the existence of medical ethics and its teaching as a specific part of every medical curriculum. The goal of teaching medical ethics is to make health care practitioners aware of the essential ethical aspects of their work. Furthermore, the contention that rational bioethics is a fruitless enterprise because it analyses non-rational social events seems neither theoretically tenable nor to be borne out by actual practice. Medical ethics in particular and bioethics in general, constitute a field of expertise that must make itself understandable and convincing to relevant audiences in health care.  (+info)

(8/615) The virtue of nursing: the covenant of care.

It is argued that the current confusion about the role and purpose of the British nurse is a consequence of the modern rejection and consequent fragmentation of the inherited nursing tradition. The nature of this tradition, in which nurses were inducted into the moral virtues of care, is examined and its relevance to patient welfare is demonstrated. Practical suggestions are made as to how this moral tradition might be reappropriated and reinvigorated for modern nursing.  (+info)


How can you ensure good morals in a child whose parents werent together from infancy?


Not only morals.. good social skills.. etc. How do you make sure your little baby doesn't go the wrong "path" in a single parent household?
not to say that something will be emotionally wrong, but when a child doesnt have the farther in the picture all the time for instance..
----------

You CANNOT ensure good morals in a child if he or she doesn't have BOTH a strong female and male influence and role model while developing. That said, it doesn't necessarily have to be the mother and father, obviously, that's ideal but not always possible. As long as there is someone there to give them guidance and perspectives from both sides. That is imperative to healthy and normal development.


What is the best method to teach my son good morals?


Some people say children should be allowed to develop their own morals, others say morals should be taught by their parents. Which way is correct?
----------

By example.

No matter what you teach your child about morals, he/she will emmulate what you do.


Do you think that values and morals need to play a bigger component of education in the public sector?


Do you believe that morals such as helping thy neighbour, being a good citizen, and helping those less fortunate than ourselves should be actively taught in schools?
I do believe that todays morals are on a downwards fall, and would like to see our future generation learn values somewhere, if not at home.
What do you think about this?
----------

Well, the schools I know DO actively teach this! It's not something that can be simply 'taught' but lived, and children learn by example. Society accepts so much in the fear of alienating any one sector and being accused of discrimination when perhaps we need to state that yes-some things are socially unacceptable. Take the soaps for example-fantastic drama that is (sometimes) well acted, but if this is what people see, day in, day out, that is taken to be the norm. People cheat & generally behave pretty nastily in the storylines so society gradually becomes de-sensitised to the  shock value of it all, partuclarly as it is shown before the watershed.   The same can be said for video games-it de-sensitises the gamer from the violence of the situation. 

You can teach morals at school but unless we all accept a collective responsibility to try & change our society  then this ideal will not be achieved.

Of course it WOULD be fantastic if this ideal came from the home-would make  teaching much simpler, particularly if people accept responsibility for their own actions instead of always looking for someone else to blame.


In the big cities, how can you raise your children to have good morals and values?


It's impossible to lock them indoor  all the time. Parents cannot watch them 24 hours a day.
With almost everything  they see and hear everywhere is against good morals and good values.
----------

it dose not matter where you live they need to be constantly reminded . but in a kind and reasonable manner. and a good example is the best teacher. one thing that is a good idea is to cull friends (yours) and acquaintances who contradict your virtues and values. they will learn to do the same and stay away from others who are a bad example. your actions speak louder than words.

how much good does it do to tell your children that violence is wrong , then watch it on tv for entertainment or buy them violent bloody video games. 
communicate with your children and get to know them and their opinions / learn what they are being taught in school. One of my grand children had a teacher who told her class it was alright to have sex , as long as it was safe sex.  excuse me!  i questioned the school about this , i did not like the attitude i got .( this was =they are going to have sex no matter what you teach them , we know your child better than you do.)

and i told them and you are going to make sure they do by teaching them it is okay and i am teaching them stupid outdated morals that have no place in modern society, right? She just shrugged.  i had repeated some of the sme things she had said to her class, so i did a little research on other schools and their policies and attitudes and changed schools.

you are your child's only REAL advocate. it is up to you to give them the foundation to stand on and a code to live by. it takes constant positive reinforcement.   and good example from you and those who you associate with and what you expose them to and what you allow others to expose them to when they are at a vulnerable age


What ethical and moral premises would you use to convince your 16 year old friend to not have an abortion?


If your 16 year old friend was intimate with her 18 year old boyfriend and she becomes pregnant what would you tell her to do based on morals and ethics. Her family is strongly against abortion. She feels she cannot tell them. What would you say to her to not get the abortion if she asks you to help her get one.
----------

It's her body therefore her choice be a good friend and support her.


What is the difference between a moral vegan and an immoral vegan?


I am a moral vegan and live by the code.
----------

The only difference is the observer's mindset.

So, Mr. Moral Vegan, will the Pats cover the spread?


sex is against my morals, how can I become pregnant without sex with my husband?


I want a baby and I have thought about adoption but the process is so long. I would also want a biological child but sex is wrong and it's against my morals not to my husband but to me. I had sex with once and it was the biggest regret of my life. How can I get pregnant without doing it with him and nothing too expensive?
----------

Is this a trick question? Where are these "morals" coming from? I don't know of *any* religion or religious belief that would support this. Even the strictest religion says it's ok to have sex with your spouse for the purpose of procreation. I would suggest psychological counseling. Also, how does your husband feel about this? Virtually every man on the planet expects sex with his wife to be part of marriage. If your husband is typical in this respect, I suggest you not try to have kids, because sooner or later he'll want a divorce, and that's a sucky way to raise kids. 

If you're absolutely dead-set on having kids, I suppose you could do in-vitro-fertilization, but I hear it's really expensive.  Any option to have kids without sex is going to be expensive. Just suck it up and do the normal thing, or go get that psychological counseling.. clearly you have major issues.


What Traits/Qualities/Morals Do You Think Are Important to Teach Boys?


What do you believe you need to teach your son to be successful in life?   Do you think society has changed it's expectations/morals for boys in the past few decades?  If so, how?
----------

1. Don't be dishonest. A person's integrity is one of the most important qualities one can possess.

2. Work hard and be thorough. One should "carry his/her own weight" and a job that is not complete is almost as bad as not doing the job at all.

3. Women should be revered and respected. They are not "sex objects", but the equal partners of men. Your spouse will become your best friend. 

4. The welfare of your family - spouse and children - should always be the driving force behind your decision. Cherish the time you have together.

5. Be willing to compromise to create a "happy middle ground", but do not disregard your principles.

6. Help those who are not as fortunate as you. This could mean financially or in health. Help your fellow human beings.
