The Lifeboat Dilemma

Overview Four men have been stranded for days on a lifeboat on the ocean without food or water. In order to survive, three of the men decide to kill the fourth man and eat him. It sounds like something from a movie, but this really happened. For this Project, you will use this famous real-life British court case (“The Queen versus Dudley and Stephens”) as the foundation for exploring right and wrong from the perspectives of two prominent ethical philosophers: John Stuart Mill and Immanuel Kant. Directions The question for you to address is whether or not what the men did was morally justified. To help you explore the ethical issues, you will learn about the perspectives of two famous philosophers: John Stuart Mill and Immanuel Kant. Then, you will write a brief either defending Dudley and Stephens or arguing in favor of the prosecution (“the Queen”). The Organizer in Project Resources will help you prepare your brief. 1)https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/561/2/ 2)http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/proofreading/ 3)http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/revising-drafts/ 4)http://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/introduction/duty_1.shtml#h 5)http://www.iep.utm.edu/kantmeta/ 6)http://philosophybites.com/2007/07/roger-crisp-on-.html 7)http://cfaresources.s3.amazonaws.com/Converted_PDF/RES-0008255 John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism on Victorian Web.pdf 8)http://www.ted.com/talks/michael_sandel_what_s_the_right_thing_to_do

Good writer. I use the writer multiple times prior and he provided quality work. The writer had a family issue in which he couldn't fulfilled the assignment but he made me aware immediately.
