Simone de Beauvoir warns against “ethical recipes,” suggesting instead that life and ethics are both inherently ambiguous. Choose one of the ethical “recipes” or “methods” offered by Manning, Kant, Mill.

What ambiguities remain even after the proper application of the ethical standard in question? (Be sure you are using “ambiguous” in the manner that Simone de Beauvoir uses the term.)

In your opinion, is any non-ambiguous ethical standard possible? Why or why not?

    So if I choose Mill, he believes that we should weigh all the consequences and that the good of the many outweighs the good of the few. Would that be considered as his "recipe" or "methods"??
    For the second part, is the teacher talking about the ambiguity of the terms good and bad or am i just confusing that with nietzsche and wittgenstein?
    I also don't understand what the ethical standard is!
    Can someone please clarify?!

    Again, I haven't studied these men and their philosophies, but I'd say that what you wrote about Mill sounds more like a "recipe" than "methods." The recipe should be broader in meaning; the methods should be very specific, providing the HOW-TO in order to follow the recipe.

    Work on your other question first ... and apply the same process with Mill and his ideas ... list them, in detail. Then you'll be able to deal with them less generally. Also, by comparing him with others, you should be able to clarify what you think about Mill.

    I don't understand, what other question? the second one? But for that one I don't quite understand what it's asking! Again, what is the ethical standard?

  • ethics -

    Principles that when followed, promote values such as trust, good behavior, fairness, and/or kindness.

    found this for ethical standards, is that it?

    Mary/David ~ It's crystal clear you are posting from the same computer. Whenever this happens (switching names, but VERY similar questions), it's clear it's the same student posting, but trying to seem as if he/she isn't.

    Read "David's" post and my reply above. Follow directions.

    I agree with your definition of ethical standards. Nice.
