Philosophy 4

Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling (1843), “Ethics and Faith”

 Answer one of the following questions in 100 words based on the reading giving to you.

1.  What is “Faith” for Kierkegaard? And how does he see faith in relation to Ethics?

(Try to find examples from the text. And also, tell me in your own words).

2. What does he mean by his question: “Is there a Teleological Suspension of the Ethical?”

(In your own words, what does the question mean?)

3. Can you think of any examples of where it would be justified to “suspend the ethical,”

(to suspend a common or universal idea of ethics), for the rights or faith of an individual?

(You can mention either hypothetical, or actual examples. Really think about what this

questions asks).

4. What is the “Knight of Faith” for Kierkegaard? And how does he compare this figure

to the tragic hero, to prove his point about faith?

(Again, find examples from the text).

5. Is there a problem with Kierkegaard’s philosophy of Faith?   What does it actually mean for ethics?

(Also, think about our contemporary society today. How might Kierkegaard’s ideas fit

into today’s world?)

6. And finally, I would like you to think about your own life. How does faith play a role in

informing your ethics? Also, how does your idea of faith relate to Kierkegaard’s, if at all?

(Think broadly about the different ways that you can interpret the question.)

Philosophy homework help

This assignment addresses that part of social work practice that you believe to be the most difficult for you to perform. A central part of the paper should be a candid, open examination of how your own perceptions, attitudes, values, experiences, emotions and stereotypes may influence your ability to perform this particular aspect of social work practice. Choose one of the following examples of topics to cover:
·         Resistance to engagement: open/subtle hostility from clients.
·         Cultural variance of clients and workers: race, status, political, gender identity, etc.
·         Clients who evoke images from your past: parents, siblings, peers, childhood, adolescence, etc.
·         Diverse populations: the differently-abled, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, older adults, mandated clients, women, men, children, ethnic minorities, etc.
·         Others topics you may desire to select (please discuss these with the instructor prior to doing this assignment).
 
After thoroughly defining and describing the practice aspect you select, examine the roots of your perceived difficulty. Theories and required readings discussed in the current or previous classes should be applied to the assessment.
Next, incorporate discussion on the NASW Code of Ethics, specifically the core values of social work. Which values apply to your discussion? Be specific in your application.
The final section should be a thoughtful description of the personal plan you have devised to address this perceived deficit for future practice. Please note: stating that you will simply refer a client for services elsewhere is not sufficient.
Note: You may write in the first person. It is helpful to include a personal dimension of how this problem/situation may have somehow touched your life.
Limit the body of your paper to 3-4 typewritten, double-spaced pages, using a 12-point font. You must make use of at least 2 different professional reference sources (general web pages/sites are not considered professional literature) to support your discussion, in addition to the NASW Code of Ethics. Be sure that the sources you cite are used to explore your own thoughts, ideas, and behaviors and that you are not providing information on how to treat specific individuals. Your references should be used to support your discussion about why working with this population presents an ethical dilemma for you, not to describe the population.
For example, if you anticipate that working with clients with substance use issues is an issue, cite resources that discuss topics such countertransference and boundaries. Do not include articles about the numbers of adults with substance use issues, factors that lead to substance use issues, etc.
Be sure to utilize correct APA format and proofread your writing thoroughly.

For this assignment propose a scenario where you or someone you know are confronted with a moral dilemma relating to cultural diversity and multiculturalism. It cannot be the same as what was covered in the week one discussion.
Cultural diversity refers to religious, sexual, racial, and other forms of social difference. A moral dilemma is a situation in which one must make a decision between two or more options such that the options involve seemingly ethical and/or unethical conduct. Address the following questions:

  • What was the situation? What did the dilemma involve?
  • What would a subjective moral relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would that kind of relativist say that?
  • What would a cultural relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would that kind of relativist say that? Is that approach correct?
  • What did you the person confronting the dilemma decide to do? What moral justification did they give? Is that approach morally correct?
  • Was there an objective moral truth (the objectively right thing to do) in this situation? Why or why not?

Remember, the dilemma should be detailed with description and dialogue. Regard the questions as requirements. This is an essay, so rather than simply providing a list of brief answers to questions, provide an in-depth reflection regarding a difficult ethical situation..
Cite the textbook and incorporate outside sources, including citations.
