There needs to be answered following questions as journals. They can be either small written paragraphs or longer.
1. O’Brien, The Things They Carried: Chapter 1, “The
Things They Carried”
What are the types of things the soldiers carry? The
narrator says that what they carry is determined by necessity. How are M&Ms
or photographs necessities in war? Do they also carry intangible things? Which
item did you find most evocative of the war?
2. O’Brien, The Things They Carried: “On the Rainy
At the beginning of this chapter, O’Brien lists a number
of problems with the war, but draws no conclusions about them. What is it about
these issues that make him oppose the war?
Also, there needs to be written as a discussion form for the following one:
that we can test the moral status of our acts by asking whether we would want
that maxim (principle) to be a universal law of nature.
If our answer
is YES, then it is MORAL.
If our answer
is NO, then it is IMMORAL.
This is Kant's non-conditional Categorical
Imperative. Kant believed that these moral principles are absolute
with no exceptions.
Kant also says that we should never treat another
rational being as merely a "means to an end." Do you agree with
him on this point? For example, is it OK to make friends with someone
just because you want to meet her brother? Or to pretend to like someone
just so you would be invited to their birthday party?
It has to contain at least 125 words.
Can someone help me, please?
