Oryx and Crake Essay

On page 206 of Margaret Atwood’s novel Oryx and Crake, protagonist Jimmy wonders, “Why is it he feels some line has been crossed, some boundary transgressed? How much is too much, how far is too far?” Atwood asks this question not only about the happenings in her fictional world but also about our society in the 21st century.
Your job will be to answer this question, using evidence from the story as well as making connections to science and technology in the world today.
Your essay should be 6-8 pages in length and should have at least 4 outside resources (evidence from the real world, literary criticism on Atwood’s novel, interviews with Atwood herself, etc).
You may choose to approach this essay from any angle you would like: maybe you will argue that no line has been crossed, that society is moving in the right direction and that on fatal decision changed everything in Oryx and Crake rather than a string of scientific developments. Perhaps you’ll argue instead that a line HAS been crossed, that in both the novel and in society, we are playing God and that only pain and suffering can result from destroying nature. You might choose a third option and argue that a line MAY have been crossed in the novel but that no such line has been crossed in the real world.
Again, the choice is yours to make, but you do need to address the question both in terms of the text and in terms of real life.

Philosophy

Paper instructions:
This paper assignment (worth 150 points) deals exclusively with moral philosophy or ethics. At the beginning of the course we encountered Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, where Aristotle undertook an empirical project of seeking what kind of life one should live. In doing so he focused on the kind of person one should become, rather than on what kinds of actions one should perform. As we encounter Kant and Mill, however, over two millennia later, we see just the opposite: a focus on what makes an action the right action, rather than what makes a person a good person.
In this paper you will present both Kant’s and Mill’s respective moral positions and evaluate one of them. In evaluating the position you should adopt the same strategy as in the third paper—by choosing either to raise your own objection to the original position or defending the position against an anticipated objection. At the end of the paper you will also attempt to articulate your own moral position to the best of your ability. First, decide whether you will be evaluating Kant’s or Mill’s view. Second, decide whether you will be attacking or defending the view. After you have made these decisions, choose the appropriate option below.
Attacking Kant’s or Mill’s View There are five parts to this assignment:
1. An introductory paragraph, providing some context for the discussion (what the main issue is in Kant’s and Mill’s works), and including an appropriate underlined thesis statement.
2. A section presenting Kant’s and Mill’s respective views on morality. You might, although aren’t required to, choose to contrast the two views in order to make it as clear as possible what moral position each view is committed to.
3. A section in which you raise an objection to one of the views AND you give an idea of how someone defending the philosopher might respond. When giving an idea of how the defender would respond, you don’t have to conclude that the response refutes your objection. For example, you might object to Kant’s view that it doesn’t allow lying in any circumstance and this runs counter to our intuitions that in some circumstances lying is permissible. You might then anticipate that a defender of Kant would respond by saying that intuitions can be wrong. The defender would owe us an argument for why this intuition might be wrong, but you don’t have to go beyond merely mentioning how a defender might respond.
4. A section in which you present your own moral view. In doing so you may draw from or present any of the views we have encountered, so long as you say why you are attracted to that view. Don’t just say that you are a utilitarian, for example, without giving reasons for why you are. You can also provide your own original moral view, though you should try to avoid getting into unnecessary complexity. If your moral view depends in some way on a metaphysical, political, or epistemological view, you should not try to present fully the view in such a short paper. One possibility for beginning to think about this task is to ask yourself whether you think the person-oriented approach of Aristotle is better suited to determining how we conduct ourselves in the world or the action-oriented approach of Kant or Mill is better. Try to limit this section to a page double-spaced.
5. A concluding paragraph, summing up what you argued in the paper.

Oral History Interviews
Oral history is an interview that records a person’s recollection of experiences,
thoughts, and feelings about a specific event or a period of time. By showing
us how national or international events affected the lives of individuals, oral
history adds a personal dimension to our study of the past.
Collecting oral history interviews is a way to discover your own primary
sources. Members of your family and community can surprise you with a
wealth of information and insights into major events of our times. These
guidelines will help you organize an oral history interview.
Preparation
First choose your subject. Whom would you like to interview? Consider the
following points:
• What historical information could be obtained from this person?
• Would this person be willing to participate?
• How much time will you need to complete your project?
Think about how you will record your subject’s words. If possible, obtain a
tape recorder and get your subject’s permission to record your interviews.
Planning the Interview
• Write an introduction to your interview. Introduce yourself if necessary,
and include an explanation of this project and its purpose.
Literature review of your topic
(your library research results using APA citation style= about 3-5 pages)
Introduction of your interviewee= Name, age, where he/she grew up; where he she lived when the event occurred or he/she first experienced your topic; where interview took place; when interviewed and how long the interview took; who was present?
Examples of questions you asked interviewee about the topic
what you learned about your topic from your interviewee (Summary of what you were told and how it fit with what you had learned from your library research; use quotes from the interview to help make your point= 3-4 pages)
Summary and conclusion (of your topic based on library research and interviewee’s experience of the event or topic) = 1-2 pages

law enforcement

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
1. What are your thoughts on the use of discretion by the police? Is this a necessary element of the job or do you think it should be limited? Be specific and explain your answer.
2. Traffic stops are usually considered a “routine” activity of the police. Did the videos change the way you think about traffic stops? or about the job of law enforcement in general? Explain your answer.
The traffic stop in video 1 seems pretty non-threatening to the officers. During the video, did you see anything that made you think there was a possibility that something dangerous could happen? What did you think of the officer’s demeanor and general handling of the stop? Be specific.
Police discretion causes much confusion. It allows police officers to interpret the law and enforce the law according to their will. This allows people to be treated unfairly versus everyone who breaks the law being punished the same way. The police having the right amount of discretion is based upon the officer. This is because an officer’s judgment is essentially what could cause a person to be charged with a crime or not. Sometimes officers take advantage of police discretion and in turn causes more issues such as racial profiling.
