Types of ethical dilemmas

Now it’s already 7 week I study in ethic class and this week we will have the lecture with Mr.Jamie. That day, I went to class exactly at 2 O’clock and I went to the class and sat, suddenly one of my classmates gave me a piece of paper and he said today Mr. Jamie will start the class with quiz. I think the main purpose that he did that quiz is just to test students understanding about ethic in the past 6 weeks and one of the quiz is a bit related to with the topic that we will learn in that class.

After finished 10 minutes the time that he gave us to answer that quiz we all submit it and start to learn the new topic that is about ethical dilemmas and types of decision. Mr. Jamie stated our class with explanation about this dilemma he said that there are seven types of ethical dilemma which consists of beneficence, autonomy, justice, fidelity, non-maleficence, confidentiality, and veracity. Then, after finished explaining about all the dilemmas he continue the class with explaining about all the types of decision. He said that there are 4 types of decision such as active, passive, programmed, and non-programmed however, most of the time we use them in a combination as active-programmed (AP), passive-programmed (PP), active-non programmed (AN), and passive-nonprogrammed (PN). He teach us about four types of decision such as active, passive, programmed, and non-programmed however, most of the time we use them in a combination as active-programmed (AP), passive-programmed (PP), active-non programmed (AN), and passive-nonprogrammed (PN).

Then, he continued our class with showing a video. I think the way that Mr. Jamie taught us was also brilliant he is trying to get student s attention with showing one video. The video was showing there are children playing near the railway and the train was coming towards them there is 8 children 7 of them is playing nearby to each other while the other one is playing a bit farther from that 7 children. Then he asked if we are in that condition and we only can save either those 7 children or that one child which one we will choose. For me I think it is ethical to save the 7 children because it’s clearly that if we only have that choice it’s better to save 7 lives rather than 1.

Finally, Mr. Jamie ended our class with his real story about his grandmother. I understand that Mr. Jamie is trying to give advice to all of us to study hard and not wasting our time by doing nothing that can give us nothing. It is also a good way to make student realize the important of appreciating time. After listening to Mr. Jamie story I also realize that I always wasting my time with doing nothing I think this is this time that I should start my effort to study hard and became a success person in the future.
