Name Institution Course DatePhilosophy and Literature Part One: The Aspects of Embeddedness The challenges with any view of the individual rights are the simple question concerning the rights involved. The other question that people often ask themselves is how to tackle such controversies between human rights. Boylan decided to answer some of these questions by formulating a table of Embeddedness that shows hierarchical ordering of basic goods referred as a goods of urgency to goods that have less urgency. The justification of goods incorporated in that table is appropriate. According to him “Everything on my table is driven by what it means to be able to execute the voluntary action.” The more embedded goods are core to the urgent needs than the ones that are less embedded (Boylan 184). Most of the goods that are more central to the human consumption are given priority over the less valuable goods it weak than he argues. Boylan’s argument is subject to libertarian knowledge. If this is the case then his objective of grounding particular human rights especially the ones that lead to positive responsibilities is ignored. Such ignorance extends further to any liability to participate in the running of a community or help in formulating social groups. Further potentially stark variations in views of ethics interfere with a conversation that helps in initiating progress of rights and other significant issues pertaining human beings.

1. The paper will be 5 pages double-spaced. 2. The paper will have two parts: (a) The Table of Embeddedness; and (b) Discussion of a formal principle. 3. The Table of Embeddedness—find two aspects of the table you consider to be controversial and then compare this controversy to a contemporary problem in the world today. 4. Discussion of a formal principle means that you choose one formal distinction that grabbed you and which you feel has several dimensions to it. Describe why those dimensions might be controversial and give an example from either literature, movies, or a television show. 5. Conclude by describing whether your formal principle can accommodate the ethical distinctions you set out in #3.
