case. PEP 570 02/22/20 What is a teleological case? PEP 570 teleological theory says that the basic or ultimate criterion or standard of what is morally right, wrong, obligatory is the

non moral value that is brought into being? What does this mean? 02/22/20 What are nonmoral values? PEP 570 experiences, paintings, forms of government, things, and what not.

02/22/20 We do not make moral decisions upon moral values why? PEP 570 circular arguments....what are they? 02/22/20

What is a deontological argument? according to Frankena? PEP 570 02/22/20 Contend that it is possible for an action or rule of action to be the morally right or obligatory one even if it does not promote the greatest

possible balance of good over evil for self, society, or universe. PEP 570 02/22/20 1 What is an act deontological theory? Different classes of deontic and teleological theories...

PEP 570 02/22/20 1 Extreme act deontic - the golden mean is the decision rests with the perception. No criterion or guiding light. Frankena: P. 16...situational ethics.

PEP 570 02/22/20 1 What is rule deontological theory? p. 17 PEP 570

Ethical Egoist... PEP 570 one and only basic obligation is to promote the greatest possible balance of good over evil for self. He/she alone is the moral spectator, advisor and judge.

in making second/third person judgments, go by what is to ones own advantage. 02/22/20 1 Ethical egoists..hedonist Epicurean way of life...good or welfare = happiness and happiness with pleasure. Pleasure may also be knowledge,

PEP 570 02/22/20 2 Errors....

PEP 570 It is practically impossible to do in any consistent or reliable fashion. How often do we have time to think through the problem? We need rules to live by. 02/22/20 2

Rule Deontology PEP 570 An exception to a rule is no more than giving way to another rule, the only problem is rank ordering according to importance. 02/22/20 2

Explain W. D. Ross prima facie and actual duty obligations. PEP 570 02/22/20 2 Prima Facie/Actual Duty

PEP 570 Prima Facie Duty - a set of rules that have no exceptions, by conceiving of them as rules of prima facie. Actual Duty: rules that occur in actual situations. Problem: Can we set down all the

rules. 02/22/20 2 What is Divine Command? How is it a rule deontological theory? How is it an ethical egoist theory? PEP 570 02/22/20

2 Divine Command PEP 570 The rules are made by the divine will of God. It is a rule deontological theory because the rules are set by God and

man is not to undo the rules. It can be an ethical egoist rule because man does so as God wills or man will suffer the consequences. 02/22/20 2 What is Kants Categorical Imperative? PEP 570
