Philosophy in the Streets Reflections Have several friends read the following two situations and discuss their answers to the questions: Suppose someone whom you have known for years and who has done many things for you asks a favor of you that will take considerable time and trouble when you had planned on doing something else. You have no doubt that helping out the person is what you ought to do but you ask yourself why you ought to do it. Or suppose you tell a blind news vendor that it’s a five dollar bill you are handing him, and he gives you four dollars and some coins in change, whereas actually you handed him only a one-dollar bill. Almost everyone would agree that such an act is wrong. But some people who agree may still ask, “Tell me why I should do it just the same.” Which of your friends’ answers do you think was best? Why? How do your friends’ answers compare to the answers given in the text? Assignment Scoring Rubric The student clearly expresses his/her personal views and perspectives, while demonstrating that they completed every aspect of the assignment and then some.
