- Eating meat is ethical
To Eat Meat or Not to Eat Meat, That is the Question
"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise."
In the grasslands of Africa a lion topples a giraffe, in the cold Arctic Circle a polar bear captures a seal, a newborn fawn falls prey to a hungry wolf, and nobody objects. Yet the act of eating meat is still a major topic of ethical reasoning today. Ethical eaters argu...
The idea of employee rights involves many complex issues. Employees expect many things in their jobs. Some of these include: better working conditions, better wages, safety, privacy, job security and the possibility of promotion, etc. But do employees actually have rights at the workplace and if so, what kind of rights do they have and this is of course different for public and private institutions. Well, first of all before a person is even an employee, he or she has rights and these are called...
- A Man for All Seasons-- Reflection
If I was given to rise in rank and earn more money even if it meant going to jail I wouldn’t do it. I would just stay or be the man in the first place. I wouldn’t want any high rank or more money if it meant going to jail. But sure I would want something grateful and not ending up in jail. I would rather choose my freedom over it. In jail I’m sure that you can’t find a way out instead of buying it. I wouldn’t want to risk my chance of getting popular or being wealthier. It is a risk I wouldn’t w...

—BBC news programme opening during the 1920s

- Plato\'s Republic
Plato’s Republic is a profound philosophical treatment of the meaning, nature, and application of justice by way of describing the perfect city-state and the use of comprehensive allegory. As Ancient Athens was the prototype for the modern ideas of Democracy, Republic is still incredibly relevant. The discussion of justice is not only explored from a political standpoint, but it also informs Epistemological views on nature, beauty, and truth, adding even more weight and importance to the ...
Gene serves as both the narrator and protagonist in the novel. Telling the story from his perspective, he recounts his own growth into adulthood — a struggle to face and acknowledge his fundamental nature and to learn from a single impulsive act that irrevocably shapes his life.
Gene\'s name suggests what he might be — but is not. In an ideal matching of gentility with hardiness, "Eugene" means "well born," while "Forrester" suggests natural independence and outdoor resourcefulness. Yet Gen...
The notion that ‘workers were men’ has dominated sociological research. It has been thought that men dominated the public sphere of paid work outside the home. While women participate in private unpaid work, such as child nurturing and reproduction. (3) However, it is important to consider what constitutes a ‘work environment’. For example, the 1991 census found 1.2 million people conduct paid work ‘mainly at home’. (4) It was further found that ‘two-thirds of all Call Centre workers are women’,...
- Cockayne Syndrome
One of the most joyous occasions in a person’s life is the news that they are expecting a baby. The news for most parents to be is a happy one. Both parents dream big of what their unborn child will be like. Will he play sports or run for office? Will she do ballet or become a doctor? For most, all they want is to have a healthy, happy baby. But for some parents, they face a di...
- Kinship Orginations
The social kinship structure of the Australian Aborigines impacts their behavior in the following ways: whom they could marry, who looks after the children if a parent dies, and who is responsible for another person’s debts or misdeeds. In looking into their cultural lifestyle, understanding how they differ from present day life will govern how we take on our everyday roles and responsibilities.
The Australian Aborigines migrated back from when the Ice Age was around, which was probably more ...

Moral Criticisms of the Market
Upon reading the article regarding moral criticisms of the market I came to the conclusion that it is indeed hard to deny some moral value to the market. After all, we do attach moral value to processes as well as to outcomes, as in the phase “the end does not justify the means. “ It is morally better to have our goods supplied by free labor, and to choose our goods rather than have them chosen for us by the state.
Moral criticism of the market tends to bl...

Many of these babies have much higher risks of cerebral palsy and malformations then babies that are conceived through natural conception. Other conditons also include lower than normal birth weight that can lead to early death in which the infant would not make it to adulthood. Since the FDA doesn't regulate fertility...

- Socrates Critical Thinker
Socrates laid the foundations for western philosophical thought. Many today follow the “Socratic method”, which involves asking probing questions in a give-and-take that will eventually lead to the truth.
Socrates was able to lead people to an awareness of their own ignorance’s to a point that they could begin to discover the truth. “As it is, the lover of inquiry must follow his beloved wherever it may lead him.” Socrates wasn’t afraid to inquire about any, and everything. He wasn’t wil...

The Philosophy of René Descartes
At the end of the sixteenth century, philosophy was losing credence within the world. Philosophy was not, however, forgotten. René Descartes (1596-1650) is the man who is said to have revived philosophy and who became renowned within the philosophy circle as the father of what is known as modern philosophy. His most famous work is Meditations on First Philosophy. Within Meditations, he switches between epistemology and metaphysics, as he becomes familiar with h...
