1. Naive moral realism: action based on rules; motivation is the avoidance of punishment. PRO: If you let your wife die, you will get in trouble. CON: You shouldn't steal the drug because you'll get caught and sent to jail. 2. Pragmatic morality: action based on desire to maximize reward or benefit/minimize negative consequences to oneself. PRO: If you get caught, you could give the drug back and you might get a reduced sentence or probation. It wouldn't be so bad to do a little time or be a little inconvenienced if it meant that your wife would be alive and waiting for you when you get out. CON: If you steal the drug, your wife will probably still die before you get out, so it won't really benefit you in the long run. 3. Socially shared perspectives: action is based on anticipated approval ordisapproval of others and actual or imagined guilt feelings. PRO: No one will think you're bad if you steal the drug, but if you let your wife die, you'll never be able to look anybody in the face again.

    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.
