How would you solve the moral dilemma of Janet Moore? Try to put yourself in her place. What would you decide and why? Explain the reasons for your decision carefully. In your explanation you should address the following three points: 1) Is you reasoning consistent or inconsistent with the Kantian idea that people should be treated as ends and never as mere means to an end? Explain why or why not. In your explanation address the issues of rights and duties vis-a-vis Kantian moral theory and the categorical imperatives. 2) Is your reasoning and decision consistent or inconsistent with a utilitarian calculation that applies the principle of utility? Explain why or why not. In your explanation be sensitive to various interpretations of how to apply the principle of utility as well as the distinction between rule utilitarianism and act utilitarianism. 3) Explain your decision from a virtue perspective. What virtues, if any, are expressed in your decision? How does this decision relate to your way of life? Explain. This is a difficult case study. The case study seems to present plausible reasons for compromising ‘principles’ or the ‘right thing to do’ from what we might consider a ‘strict moral point of view’. Since we are detached from these cases that we study rather than live, it is easier to defend and rationalize the higher moral ground. Try to be sensitive to the context of these decisions. And be honest. The response will be evaluated according to the quality of explanation of the case, your reasoning, and your understanding of the moral theories and ideas discussed in the book. Your personal opinions are not relevant to evaluation of the discussion. The discussion is evaluated according to the quality of 1) reasoning 2) explanation of factual issues, concepts and principles relevant to the topics 3) interpretation of the significance of case to concepts, principles and theories discussed in the course.
This is a case study discussion about conducting research in different culture In terms of : What is primary ethical challenges in this case study? You need to answer and discuss the following 7 points: Wearing a white coat symbolizes being a doctor and many people in the rural population do not distinguish between different types of health personnel. Respondents may have seen an opportunity to be attended to by a doctor, hence the quick granting of consent. Although research assistants explained that this was a study, the drugs provided for the clinical trial may have been viewed as treatment. Since the respondents generally had problems obtaining drugs, they may have thought this would be an opportunity to get free drugs. A doctor is a highly respected person in society and therefore, whatever the doctor is doing must be right. This belief makes it difficult for them to decline what the doctor is requesting. The doctor is often perceived as a powerful person capable of performing miracles. An important social value in this community is treating visitors in a friendly manner. Declining a request made by a visitor is viewed as being disrespectful and not conforming to traditional values. The notion of individual consent is in conflict with traditional values about who is able to make decisions in the family. In this community, the male household-head normally gives permission to his wife for her to consent to take part in the study. If he declines, although she may be willing to participate, she cannot because that could create family problems. The wife might be viewed as defiant if she participates when her husband had refused. Although the rights of every individual are important and need to be respected, it is also necessary to respect the cultural traditions of others because these traditions govern their everyday lives. Pursuing an ethics of individual rights from a non-cultural point of view may lead to other ethical challenges, such as causing conflicts among family members. In this case, a mans refusal to allow his wife to participate, combined with the cultural requirement that one should not decline a visitors requests, places a woman in a difficult dilemma: a woman cannot say no to participating in the study because this might be construed as disrespectful to a visitor, and yet she cannot say yes because her husband has refused to let her participate. While some respondents had absolutely no problem with consenting to participate in the study, they did have a problem with signing the consent form. They could not see the point of signing the form after they had agreed to participate. This may have been viewed as insincerity on the part of the researchers and possibly evidence of a hidden agenda which was not being revealed. Past experiences have made some people become suspicious of signing documents. Individuals have, for example, lost their land by signing papers, hence their hesitation about signing consent forms.
