The “Real” Human
The are three major parts of this essay:
1) We exist as two selves – the inner and the outer selves;
2) The actions of the outer self “justify” the inner self;
3) As we age, we surrender the inner self to the outer self.
Now, in the common MLA format, a page or two.. or more, please consider the question: “WHAT JUSTIFIES MY EXISTENCE?” I find it rather tiresome that most people feel no need to justify their own existence – they take it as a “given.” And religion does not work: to say “God wants me here, and so I have reason to be,” begs the question of the existence and nature of God — do not use this approach. And people even feel entitled. But, such is not the case.
Ethics is the study of how we should behave — the good and bad/right and wrong. This assignments is an effort to tie up all the elements we have looked at over the past few weeks… kind of an effort in purity.
