Critical Thinking Questions

Question description

  1. Concentrate on identifying the rights that are at stake. Are they liberty rights? Claim rights? If claim rights, against whom are the claims addressed? Try also, to see if there are any duties of natural law that you think are relevant.

On a Saturday morning in the spring of 2010 in New York City, a homeless man attempted to save a woman from an attacker and was stabbed in process. For over an hour he lay bleeding on the sidewalk in plain view of passersby. Several people stopped to look at him. One man shook him. Another took a photo of him with a cell phone. But no one helped him or called 911. The man died there.

 

  2.  In this week's module we saw that the notion of liberty rights evolved out of medieval scholars' reinterpretation of Roman law on the various forms of relation one can bear to property. The notion of a right that was developed was one that asserted an area of control over one’s life and was likened to the strongest form of property ownership recognized in Roman law. Do you believe you are related to yourself as to property? What are the implications of this view?

In this week's AVP, you were asked the question 'Do you think that you can use natural law to argue against the legitimacy of slavery? Why or why not?' Provide your answer to that question here.

Must be in your own words and will be ran through TURNITIN and several other plagiarism checkers.
