Ethical Formalism is classified by deontological system which means that say you see a little old lady getting ready to try to cross the street, so what would be moral would be to help the lady cross the street why because it’s the right thing to do. But if you do things with an alterior motive or have a secret agenda then you aren’t behaving according to this system. In the deontological view you must be doing something right, and moral and basically obey the laws in doing so you are also behaving by ethical formalism. My definition of ethical formalism is if you are doing something good, or moral that is based upon what we were taught is right and wrong. Utilitarianism is classified by the teleological system which means that the consequences are judged not the act itself. Example if we were to actually go out and find Bin Laden and kill him, we would be saving millions but we would be killing one man. Utilitarianism says the basically to sacrifice one to save many, is acceptable regardless of the consequences. Now society and some groups will disagree and say that it is never ok to take another human life regardless if it is getting rid of someone who has done great injustices.

What students are saying

    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.
