The traditional normative theories

Compose 2-3 pages in which you respond to a medical ethics dilemma.
Ethics is about doing what is right. Traditional normative theories express this goal in one of three ways:

Virtue Ethics

Seek personal excellence by cultivating virtuous habits.
Aristotle: Achieve self-sufficiency through moderation.

Deontological Ethics

Do your duty by following the rules.
Kant: Act as any rational agent is bound by universal law.

Consequentialist Ethics

Try to make the world a better place by producing good outcomes.
Mill: Generate more pleasure and less pain for everyone.

Applying ethical theories to everyday life is not easy, as we consider virtues, duties, and results:

Virtue Ethics

Strengths: Respect for people, moral education, continuing progress.
Problems: No direct advice for specific situations, excuse for self-serving.

Deontological Ethics

Strengths: Simple application of rules, avoid personal responsibility.
Problems: Rigidly strict, conflicting rules, sometimes bad consequences.

Consequentialist Ethics

Strengths: Flexibility in circumstances, outcomes publicly discernible.
Problems: Hard to predict results accurately, especially over the long run.

Using all three is fine, but we need to think through how they cohere or diverge.
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.

You are called to consult in the critical care unit of your local hospital. The hospital admits JoEllen, 53, after she takes an overdose of prescription medications with alcohol. On admission, she says, “Not supposed to be here . . . ” and soon becomes uncommunicative. As her condition deteriorates rapidly, her son arrives with a notarized advance directive in which JoEllen specifically asks not to be placed on life support. What should you recommend to the attending health professionals?
