Discussion Module #3: An ethical dilemna
No unread replies.No replies.
In the late 1950s, psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg developed a model that attempted to explain how children develop a sense of right or wrong. To do this he posed several dilemmas to children of various ages and studied their responses. It should be noted that during the 1950s – 1960s, all of Kohlberg’s subjects were male.
First, review this document that explains those stages: Kohlberg stages (Links to an external site.)
Now read this case, which is very similar to those provided to the children:
In Europe, a woman was near death from cancer. One drug might save her, a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. The druggist was charging $2,000, ten times what the drug cost him to make. The sick woman’s husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money, but he could only get together about half of what it cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said, “No.” So Heinz, feeling desperate, broke into the man’s store to steal the drug for his wife.
On the discussion board, please choose one of the following questions to respond to. These questions represent an abbreviated list from those Kohlberg’s subjects responded to. Please respond in paragraph form, using complete sentences.
Should Heinz have stolen the drug? Why or why not?
Suppose Heinz didn’t doesn’t love his wife, should he still steal the drug for her? Why or why not?
Suppose the person dying is not his wife but a stranger. Should Heinz steal the drug for a stranger? Why or why not?
Suppose it is a pet animal he loves. Should Heinz steal to save the pet animal? Why or why not?
