Becoming an Ethical Adult Discussion Answer the question posed in the discussion description related to Chapter 11 Becoming an Ethical Adult 1. The textbook states that the best determiner of personal moral development "is the recognition that motive , not consequence , is a critical factor in deciding if an act is ethical". Discuss something specific that you have learned in this class that supports or challenges this assumption. I agree with the textbook’s assertion that the best determinant of personal moral development is the recognition that motive, not consequence, is critical in determining the ethics of an act. Over time, I have realized that many at times we do things, premeditated or not without harboring any malicious thoughts. Be that as it may, I learnt that there is no telling whether or not the consequences to these acts might be negative or positive. It is also true that sometimes we plan to do things that don’t pass the moral compass. Either way, whether an outcome of an action is favorable in our eyes or those of people around us, what matters is the motive behind the actions.

    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.

    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.
