Avilla 1 Ross Avilla Dr. Chris Nagel Philosophy 4401 January 22, 2005 Response to Bayles “Problem of Clean Hands” I decided to write my response to Bayles’ essay before I read Oberdick’s essay so that I could sort of do what you wanted us to do: try to find things wrong with the Bayles’ paper before reading Oberdick’s retort. I got what Bayles was saying that if a person deems something to be truly immoral then that person’s aim, regardless of what their client wants, is to do their best to make sure that it does not come about at all, whether it be by the hands of that individual or by someone else. Surely if someone feels something asked of them by a client is downright immoral that person will not just flippantly refuse and then pass them off to another professional that will do it. What I do not get, however, is Bayles notion that if someone else will do it then it doesn’t make any since for the person who knows it’s immoral not to do it. From a purely utilitarian point of view I guess it makes sense
