Description Question 1: Using Dr. Gentle’s lecture summary, our assigned reading from chapter 10 in Living the Good Life and the pdf handout in assignment #3 on Intrinsic evils, please answer the following questions: a) What is meant by the term “intrinsic evil”? — be specific in citing material from both Living the Good Life & the handout to help you come up with an in-depth definition. b) What bearing, if any, do circumstance, motive, and/or outcome have on determining which actions are deemed to be “intrinsic evils” ? c) What is the determining factor in whether a particular moral action falls under the category of “intrinsic evil?” Question 2: Using the material in the YouTube Portlet #1, Video #1, what additional insights did you gain about the nature of and existence of intrinsic evils? Why, as healthcare workers, must we be especially aware of the reality of intrinsic evils? Question 3:. Using the material in YouTube Portlet #1, Video #2, how do we define Euthanasia? Also, from this video, identify, name and discuss the teaching of the Catholic Faith, which is the same as the biblical view, on permitting or being involved, in any way, in the deliberate killing of human life. Question 4: Using the material in YouTube Portlet #1, Video #3, from the biblical point of view regarding the dignity of the human person, what are the basic principles involved in making an ethically good decision regarding the forgoing or stopping of a particular medical treatment for a particular patient in a particular circumstance? Notice that the word particular is used here — as this will vary from patient to patient. Please discuss in your answer the difference between ordinary care vs. extraordinary care, morally speaking -for particular patients. Sometimes this is termed as proportionate vs. disproportionate means. Can you offer an example from real life or your work with patients? Question 5: Based on what we have learned about the worldview of secular humanism, moral relativism and materialism – and their approach to the meaning of human life, how would you suppose that persons holding these viewpoints might try to ignore the reality of intrinsic evils? How would you suppose that persons holding these philosophies would approach the moral issues regarding end-of-life decisions? Question 6: Identify and discuss 3 key points from our assigned reading in chapters 4 & 5 of Back to Virtue that were helpful to you — as you think about how to live your own life in a way that is ever-more directed toward choosing the true Good and rejecting the real Evil, as defined by the Moral Law, given to all people by God. Be sure and offer page numbers and quotes from the assigned reading and do not speak in mere generalities. Question 7: From your reading of chapter 7 of Back to Virtue, name and discuss 3 insights you gained about the deadly sin of Pride — and how to combat it with the virtue of humility. Please number each insight in your answer to help distinguish them. Question 8: From your reading of chapter 11 of Back to Virtue, name and discuss 3 insights you gained about the deadly sin of Sloth/aka spiritual laziness or refusing to work on our task of reaching heaven — and how to combat it with the virtue of hungering for God and God’s Truth. Please number each insight in your answer to help distinguish them. Question 9: From your reading of chapter 12 of Back to Virtue, name and discuss 3 insights you gained about the deadly sin of Lust — and how to combat it with the virtue of purity of heart. Please number each insight in your answer to help distinguish them. Question 10: What did Peter Kreeft help you understand in chapters 11 & 12 of Back to Virtue regarding the relationship between the deadly sin of Sloth, which is so prevalent in our times, and our culture’s current fixation on the deception that sexual pleasures can satisfy the restless human heart? Really put on your thinking cap on this one!! Question 11: Name and discuss at least one key learning about the end of life and/or the end of this world that our assigned reading in Theology for Beginners helped you to understand. What further questions did this reading raise for you, if any. Question 12: What insights from the video on the Christian meaning of human suffering were especially helpful to you — especially as you think about your work with patients who are suffering? Why is good palliative care important, especially for the spiritual welfare of our patients?
