Name:____________________ PHIL002: Introduction to Philosophy—Morals and Politics Film Journal: A Clockwork Orange As we watch the film this week, I’d like you to consider some philosophical questions and problems that it raises. I’ve offered a few questions to complement each day’s viewing. Please write down your comments and thoughts on these questions on the evening corresponding to the appropriate viewing day. This will serve as a journal to collect thoughts and ideas as we prepare for a thorough discussion of the film next week. The idea here is not to create rigorous essays, but rather to collect your thoughts. Spend time thinking the questions over, but don’t worry about stylistic considerations (grammar, etc.) here. Section 1: Choose one of Alex’s acts of “ultra-violence” and evaluate it from a utilitarian perspective. Then evaluate it from a Nietzschean perspective.

    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.
