Philosophy

Please select one of the questions from the list below. And make sure to clearly state the question you are answering at the START of your essay.
(1) What is the ‘perspective of eternity’, and what relevance, if any, does it have for the problem of the meaning of life?
(2) Are human beings intrinsically valuable? If so, why? If not, then what moral consequences does this have (e.g., does this mean that, say, cannibalism is morally permissible)?
(3) Is my moral obligation to help someone in need on the other side of the world exactly the same as my moral obligation to help someone in need right in front of me? If not, why not? If so, then what moral consequences does this have?
(4) What is the difference between act and rule utilitarianism? Is either preferable to the other?
(5) Why does Kantian ethics hold that there is something inherently wrong about lying? Is this a problem for the view, do you think?
(6) What do virtue ethicists mean when they say that morality is a matter of virtuous character? Are they right to emphasize the importance of character in this way?
