Transcript of Aladdin
We will be taking a deeper
look into the ethical issues of one of
the most poplar movies
for children. Aladdin!
Lets take a look at the trailer Occurs when we find ourselves in situations in which our personal needs and desires are at odds with our obligations as professinals or employees Example: Just because it is legal does not make it right. Example Identification, Analysis Decision Making Recognize you have a problem. Know you are faced with an ethical issue - a question. Example: Consider all reasonable OPTIONS and STAKEHOLDERS. How will each options effect each stakeholder? Who is the most vulnerable stakeholder? Example: Find the most ethical option or options. Is your decision justified? Final Decision: Main ethical issue: SHOULD JASMINE MARRY A PRINCE? Options:
Jasmine should marry a prince.
Jasmine should not marry a prince.
Jasmine should marry Aladdin.
Aladdin could become a prince. Stakeholder: Jasmine, the kingdom, her father Aladdin and Jafar Jasmine married Aladdin. It is justified because ethics is larger than law and Aladdin became a prince at the end of the story. Aladdin promised his third final wish to the genie that he would release him but when the time came Aladdin hesitated to follow through with his promise because the kingdom and Jasmine were in danger. Example 2: Jasmine is going against her father and kingdom to marry her true love Aladdin even though he is not in the same social class and is a street rat. The law was that Jasmine, being a princess, was to marry a prince and only a prince. However her true love was not a prince but she chose to marry him anyways. Ethics is larger than law Genie obligation/ law was to grant the three wishes of his masters regardless of the morality behind these wishes. However genie was not allowed to grant wishes that required to raise the dead, have more wishes, or make someone fall in love with another person. Ethics is larger than law. Throughout the movie, Jafar was at a stage 2, because his evil actions were selfish and only to benefit himself. Aladdin was a stage 3, interpersonal coordinate, because his motivation to become a prince was so that he could be accepted by Jasmine. 3 steps of caring
Care for self
Care for others
Balance, caring for self and others Examples: Jasmine was a step one because she was more focused on her personal interest. She chose to follow her own path and marry her true love instead of making her kingdom and father happy One whose aim to always act to perceive
self interest in the long run even
at the expense of others. Jafar was the only character in the movie whom cared about himself at the expense of others. He tried to kill the king, he tried to kill Aladdin, he tried to entrap genie forever, tried to take over the whole kingdom A system of evaluating statements or arguments. Deductive Jasmine must marry a prince.
Aladdin is not a prince.
Therefore Jasmine cannot marry Aladdin Inductive Aladdin has a carpet.
Aladdin's Carpet is magic.
Therefore all carpets are magic. An attempt to persuade emotionally or psychologically, not logically (based on emotion or opinion not facts). Stereotypes Aladdin is a "street rat" therefore everyone thinks he is a bad person Either/Or Jasmine either marries a prince or doesn't marry at all Is/Ought It has always been that a princesses marries a prince. Jasmine ought to marry a prince Slippery Slope If Aladdin was unable to retrieve genie from Jafar then Jafar would rise in power, marry Jasmine, dethrone the king and then take over the land. Genetic Fallacy Jasmine's father would tell her that she's too young to understand love and that she must marry a prince Meeting the cast Aladdin played by Scott Weinger Genie played by Robin Williams Jasmine played by Linda Larkin Jafar played by Jonathan Freeman Example: Categorical Imperative Genie; he cared about other people. Genie began to care more about Aladdin throughout the movie also Genie never used anyone as a means to an end. Divine Command There was no real evidence of Divine Command. Most likely because of the time period and/or because of Disney. They did not want to get involved with religion Example: Aladdin made a contract with the genie about what kind of wishes you can have, from the beginning Aladdin said he would free the Genie.. The agreement Rule number one: can not wish for someone to be killed. Rule number two: Cannot make anyone fall in love with you Rule number three: can not bring someone back to life. Rule number four: can not wish for more wishes. Stages of moral development. Stage 2- Instrument and Relativity
Obey, follow laws/authority -- if it will benefit "me" Stage 3- Interpersonal Concordance
Obey, follow laws/ authority-- to please others, to be accepted. The theory is founded on individual moral autonomy and the categorical imperative, which included the ethical principles of universality and respect for person.
Caring for others, and treating them as you would like to be treats. Example: Aladdin would be the best fit, because he grew as a person throughout the movie. This is shown by the wishes that he made, his first wish was to impress Jasmine, in becoming a prince. His second wish was to save his own life. And his third wish was to free Genie. Example: The king was trying to make the most people happy of the land to follow the rules, for peace of the land with other people in the world. Trying to make peace for all when marrying off Jasmine to Prince. Identify a person/group in a category. There are only two sides to the issue -- either this or that -- you have only two choices. Something is done this way and ought to stay this way. Example: Example: You believe an event sets off a chain reaction normally ending in an undesirable event. Example: Ad hominem circumstantial- (to the person) using a person's circumstances against them Example: God's will is ethics. Without God there are no ethics or morals.
