Coggin 1 Chris Coggin February 19, 2008 Philosophy-105 Paper #1 Dishonorable Behavior With life comes moments where a person’s morals are tried and tested. These personal morals are based off what society thinks, a set of basic rules, or ‘social codes’ as Socrates would put it. Even with this code in place some are over come by wants of personal gain. Cheating is a common immoral act in which a person consciously uses someone else’s knowledge in attempting to gain an unfair advantage. It shows the intellectual knowledge of someone else’s work and not of your own, and that the cheater didn’t put effort to absorb the information. It is an act that only hurts one self later in life. Socrates was an individual who believed morals were something that you had a set of your own and believed in yourself. Which is saying one person’s morals can’t vary much from another individuals, but if you believe differently from a mass majority then you would be fighting an up hill battle against everyone else you reside in society with.

    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.
