My Projects and My Integrity When we consider the importance of moral responsibility, we wonder how to determine our share of responsibility for outcomes produced by a collective of which we are only one part, how to come to terms with the undeniable fact of moral luck, and why should it matter what I do if my actions make no difference for the outcome? In this short assignment, I will examine Williams’s views on integrity. First, I will articulate an argument based off of Williams’s article. Second, I will offer the premises of this argument. Finally, I will agree with the premise, however, criticize the argument made because it is not sound. Williams’s argues that utilitarianism cannot respect the difference between what is done and what is done by me. Consequentialism is indifferent to whether a state of affairs consists in what I do, or is produced by what I do, where that notion is itself wide enough to include, for instance, situations in which other people do things which I have made, allowed or encouraged them do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
