Phil 230 February 28, 2016 The case I chose to evaluate is the Amazon case because I feel like that case is easier for me to relate to. My reasoning for saying that is due to the reason how well known Amazon is in the United States especially when you compare it to the knowledge of Bangladesh upon your typical average American. In addition, I learned about the situation regarding the living standards in Bangladesh last semester in my philosophy class which also was the first time I even heard of a place called Bangladesh. Never once in my life I heard about what goes down in the business of Amazon, I just assumed that it was a nicely run business with nothing too shady and boy I was wrong in every way possible. I am was surprised and shocked with the things that went with Amazon and how I never once heard about this type of activity done by Amazon on the news. That was also part of my reasoning for wanting to evaluate the Amazon case since it was such a shock to me personally. The two moral approaches I choose to use to analyze the Amazon case are the Kantian and the Libertarianism approaches. I believe those two would be the best pair of moral approaches to be used for study the Amazon because reviewing both the moral approaches I figured that it would be quite difficult to determine which one is the better moral approach when it comes to analyzing the Amazon at least for me it would a challenging thing to choosing which moral approach did the better job. Plus, I thought it would be more fun to have two moral approaches that have no clear advantage over the other, than having one moral approach that is obliviously better than the other one. I will first start off by looking at the Amazon case though the Kantian approach, but before I go on explaining the Amazon case though the Kantian approach I will explain what the Kantian is and what it stands for. Kant, the man who started the whole Kantian approach and its values, believe that the only thing that is absolutely and unqualifiedly good is a good will. Kant believes that having a good will involves attempting to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. Kant also has two propositions of moralities with the first one being “for an action to have genuine moral worth it must done from duty” (Kant9) and the second one being “an action that is done from duty does not get its

    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.
