  • John Mill On Happiness Analysis

    What is the great happiness? According to John Mills, the greatest happiness is when “actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness; wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness.” The greatest happiness principle is the most fundamental claim that he discusses.

  • Utilitarian And Kantian Ethical Theories

    In the essay I am writing today I will be comparing utilitarianism; also called consequentialism, and Kantian ethical theories. The attitude towards what is right or wrong is what constitutes the basic difference between the two theories. Utilitarianism says an act is justified if the end result is happiness for all. The Kantian theory states that end does not justify means, and whatever we do inside our obligations is morally good. The dilemma I used for this essay was under the Paradigm #4…

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Gene Editing

    Utilitarianism, on the other hand, states that actions are morally right or wrong depending on their consequences (Matti, 1994).

  • M By Fritz Lang Analysis

    Not often does a decision made by a director due to lack of funds create an end result that critics will continue discussing for nearly a century. However German director Fritz Lang, made such a decision for his 1931 film, M.

No film, as of yet, quite encapsulates the deafening power of…

  • The Jazz Singer Analysis

    Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer opened in 1927 to critical acclaim and widespread popular acclamation. The film is focused on young, Jewish Jakie Rabinowitz, who defies his devoutly religious family in order to pursue a career on stage as a jazz singer. Significantly, this film features copious uses of blackface, which is not only narratively but thematically central to the message of the film—the necessary rebellion of modernity against tradition, of New World dynamism against Old World stagnation.…

  • Similarities Between John Stuart Mill And Aristotle Happiness

    When asking if the happiness of an individual should rate higher than the welfare of the general state of society, I strongly disagree. Many people make the most of their lives by having the knowledge to understand what matters in life. On the other hand there are also an abundance of people who do not have the knowledge to know what matters in life. The definition of happiness is, “Happiness is thought of as the good life, freedom from suffering, flourishing, well-being, joy, prosperity, and…

  • Utilitarianism Argument Analysis

    “The creed which accepts as the foundations of morals, Utility, or the Greatest-Happiness Principle, holds that actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness, wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness. By happiness is intended pleasure, and the absence of pain; by unhappiness, pain, and the privation of pleasure.” This quote, by John Stuart Mill, about Utilitarianism embodies my ethical decision making process in a way that Relativism, Deontology or any other…
