Philosophy 342 March 24, 2009 Chapter 3 Questions and Answers 1. What is the principle difference between rights and duties and utilitarian norms? Rights- are a moral of an important, normative, justifiable claim or entitlement to something. Duties-Individuals freedom is not to be violated Utilitarian-The greatest good for the greatest number A person’s rights is free will and speech, duties are an individuals responsibilities in their life, and Utilitarian is the greatest good that an individual can do for their community and country. (Such as the soldiers that are fighting to protect our Country). 2. Upon what is the norm of caring built? Caring is the responsibility for caring for another human being, (such as a child, husband, wife or parent or even an animal). Rights, Duties, Justice and Utilitarianism have a common interest. All four are about our country and caring and the freedom of speech for each individual. I would say that rights and caring would be very important to many individuals in this country. Everyone should have their own free will to speak and care for whom ever they choose to. 3. Indicate the strengths and weaknesses of using the norm of a-utility b-justice c- rights d-caring.

    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.
