Example text

Further, it is not always clear where one’s duty lies. At times one might face a dilemma where two duties conflict with each other. 3. The priority of motive and intent over result is problematic in some instances. It may be seriously questioned whether the intention to do good, regardless of result or perhaps with negative result, is always moral. Many would argue that the consequences of an action and the actual result must be evaluated to determine morality. (Maestri, 1982: 910) How would ethical formalism help resolve the dilemma faced by Sergeant Poole when he was asked to sign the “doctored” report for the district attorney’s office?

Before you knew what happened, the car was hit head on, and all of you were seriously injured—especially you. In fact, you are now paralyzed and facing the rest of your life in a wheelchair. The car that hit you was driven by a drunken student who, ironically, was in several of your classes. Several days after you return home from the hospital, he wants to see you. Despite your anger, you do see him, and he begs for your forgiveness. In fact, he totally breaks down and cries and tells you that he had never done anything like that before and wishes he were dead.

The clearest examples of these two approaches are ethical formalism (a deontological or “nonconsequentialist” system) and utilitarianism (a teleological or “consequentialist” system). Ethical Formalism Ethical formalism is a deontological system because the important determinant for judging whether an act is moral is not its consequence, but only the motive or intent of the actor. According to Kant, the only thing that is intrinsically good is a good will. If someone does an action from a good will, then even if it results in bad consequences, it can be considered a moral action.
