In this report, I will be using the sited case - The Queen v. Dudley and Stephens (1884) with reference to the relevant moral philosophies to anlayse what exactly are the possible options that individuals would decide when they are in the same situation as Dudley. Four English sailors were caught at sea in a tiny lifeboat in the South Atlantic, over a thousand miles from land. They had only two cans of preserved turnips no fresh water. That they had been without food and water for several times. And lastly, Captain Thomas Dudley advised getting rid of Richard Parker so that they could prey on him. Dudley and Stephens ended up killing Parker, and ate him to endure. These were rescued four days later and visited trial. These were sentenced to death charges; however, their word was reduced to half a year imprisonment later.
