Charities in Determining the Moral

Words: 1595 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 54801230

Of these, proponents like Bruce W. Fraser (2005) quote studies and statistics that support the financial viability of corporate responsibility. One study is for example the one by Oekom Research, which indicates that of the 602 companies examined, the 186 companies with the highest sustainability rating also performed better financially than the 416 remaining companies, outperforming them by 23.4%.

Critics like Vogel are however not impressed by such numbers (tavins, 2006). The much wider studies cited and compared in his book appear to indicate that results like those mentioned by Fraser are both biased and too narrow to provide a true indication of the performance/responsibility ratio.

This is a debate that will probably last for a very long time. Nevertheless, other factors should also be taken into account, especially in terms of shareholders. hareholders as entities are changing together with the environment in which they function. An increasing number of…… [Read More]

Donations to Charities Clothes Donation

Words: 2434 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 33046328

They point out a practical instance of India when it was struck by disaster and there was overwhelming donation of clothes that Indian towns ended up chocking on these clothes. It forced the authorities to divert from the recovery process to helping in disposal of the piles of clothes that were spewed along the highways and streets.

There is yet another angle to the whole charity giving of clothes in particular. There are some areas or countries whose local textile industry has suffered immensely due to the emergence of the cheaper clothing whose origin is the charity donated clothes from USA. The fact that they are donated means they get into the overseas markets at a cheaper price hence attracting more demand over the locally manufactured clothes. The pressures of demand and supply hence makes it impossible for the local industry to cope, hence he well intended donations of clothes…… [Read More]

Donors want to be sure there is a purpose for their gift; they want to know their money will be used wisely and will make a difference in the lives of others.

It seems counterintuitive that long letters would make effective appeals, but Clark (as cited in Kluth) recommends long letters as the best means to evoke a response from potential donors. Clark cites research that has demonstrated time and again that long letters are effective. By "long," she means two-sided copy on standard business letterhead paper and up to three or four pages. Such letters provide donors with information on which to make their funding decisions. It is part of ensuring donors that their "hard-earned dollars" will be well spent on a mission that has a clear purpose and is well thought out in terms of implentation.

"Famine, affluence, and morality" by Peter Singer

In his essay "Famine, affluence, and morality," Peter Singer asks why the major industrial nations of the world fail to act in assisting poorer and destitute nations, despite the fact they have enough resources to do so. Singer argues that it is just as immoral for a First World nation to refuse to offer aid to a nation in the developing world as it is to refuse to save a child from drowning in a shallow pond if the personal risks and costs to the individual are nil other than getting one's clothes dirty. The reasons we do not aid these countries is because they subjectively seem very far away, even though real children are dying…… [Read More]

Singer's Goal Is a Very Noble One

Words: 1389 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 3556410

Singer's goal is a very noble one. Through his article, Singer is attempting to dispel many of the more common notions of moral obligation and charity. His article attempts to provide the reader with concrete notions of moral obligation as they relate to overall human behavior. He presents various notions such as the need to help others irrespective of proximity or geographic preference. Singer, through his article also provides evidence as to the absurd thinking prevailing in the developed nations regarding charity. I particularly applaud how Singer contrast's man's desire for clothes with the need to preventing starvation. In the article Singer shows how many unnecessarily spend money on items that provide no moral benefit to society, while others in neighboring countries are starving. The goal of this article is for those in the developed nations to rethink how they regard moral obligation and charity. The article's goal is also…… [Read More]

Famine Affluence and Morality 1972 by Peter

Words: 1487 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 25682272

Famine, Affluence, and Morality" (1972) by Peter Singer introduces its readers to numerous social issues that Singer states have been vastly ignored. The issues deal with the lack of progress in the betterment of society and although the article was originally written more than four decades ago, the situation around the globe remains unchanged. Singer's goal in this article is to present a side not widely taken. To him, the social problems infesting the lives of individuals seem to be quite obvious, yet his discontent with people's attitudes is quite apparent in this article. His primary argument in the article however, is that in order to solve the issues that he sees as being obviously manageable is to give to those who need it most. Throughout the article he points out to these exact societal problems and the financial turmoil that various communities around the world were facing at the…… [Read More]

Addams included a large amount of environmental reforms in her program for Hull House. One of the most prominent incorporated her labors to address the unhealthful heaps of garbage in immigrant areas because of a lack of public interest. The mayor of Chicago ultimately appointed Addams garbage inspector for her region a job that she took very seriously. Addams managed garbage collectors and took violators of garbage policies to court. Even though Addams and her associates frequently started reforms, the immigrants had a dynamic role as well, helping in knowledge gathering and its communication to their neighbors (Settlement House Movement, 2011).

ichmond's devotion and professionalism, along with her scientific charity has been documented and developed over the years.

Carla Boyne's Catering Company

Contributions to Profit

The high-low method throws away most of the data and bases the estimates of variable and fixed costs on data for only two months. For that reason, it is a decidedly inferior method in this situation (Craig, 1998). Nevertheless, if the high-low method were used, the estimates would be computed as follows:

Labor Hours Overhead Expenses ($)

Highest level of activity 7500 77000

Lowest level of activity 2500 55000

Change 5000 22000

Variable Cost = $4.40 per labor-hour

Fixed Cost Element = Total cost -- Variable cost element

= $77,000 -- ($4.40 per labor-hour x 7,500 labor-hours)

= $44,000

The total variable cost per guest is computed as follows:

Food and Beverages

$15.00

Labor (0.5-hour x $10.00 per hour)

$5.00

Overhead (0.5-hour x $3.95 per hour)

$1.98

Total Variable Cost per Guest

Famine Affluence Morality Peter Singer's Principle Goal

Words: 1017 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 34854222

Famine, Affluence, Morality

Peter Singer's principle goal of "Famine, Affluence and Morality" is to get members of society to alter their contemporary conceptions of morality. His primary means of achieving this goal is to get people to rethink the notion of giving charity to those in need. He utilizes the 1971 destitution of people in Bengal as a case study in which he urges the affluent to change their view of morality so that they donate money and time to help the indigent. The author's assumption is that by getting people to understand the moral obligation in helping those in need, such as those in Bengali who have been ravaged by "Constant poverty, a cyclone, and civil war" (Singer, 1971, p.229), he will effectively change the way people consider moral situations. This change in their thinking will then influence their propensity for aiding other people in other situations outside of…… [Read More]

Famine, Affluence, And Morality by Peter Singer

Peter Singer's 1972 article is intended to provoke thought on the issue of the more fortunate's moral obligation toward the less fortunate. Singer uses the famine in East Bengal to claim that affluent countries and individuals have a moral obligation to give far more than they do to help relieve the suffering and death from lack of food, shelter and medical care experienced in the region at the time. Singer argues that people who live in affluent countries must radically change their way of life and their conception of morality so that they will become committed to helping those in need. He asserts that "…the way people in relatively affluent countries react to a situation like that in Bengal cannot be justified; indeed the whole way we look at moral issues -- our moral conceptual scheme -- needs to be altered, and with…… [Read More]

Build -- History and Mission

Words: 1645 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 15461704

ReBuild has little free cash at this point in its life and relies heavily on volunteers to sustain itself. As such, it must pay close attention to finding ways to raise more funds and improve communications without increasing the charity's cost structure. Social networking meets all of these needs.

It is recommended that ReBuild sign up for Facebook, at least in part because of that sites ability to allow ReBuild to accept donations. The charity should sign up for Twitter, to help promote events and announce newly arriving items. LinkedIn will allow ReBuild to become better connected with contractors and renovators in the area, bringing in more donations and more customers. As such, all three are recommended as methods for ReBuild arehouse to build a social networking presence.

Their activities and support of the foundation; enable the league to demonstrate a higher purpose which is of greater social value. (Ferriter)

In the majority of cases, the NFL is using the various high profile marketing events to illustrate the importance of sports in promoting various charity related events. The Super Bowl is the biggest event with it using the game as an avenue to help the community which is hosting it. At the same time, it is an avenue for helping to promote social responsibility. Evidence of this can be seen with Babiak & olfe (2006) saying, "The NFL is becoming progressively more invested in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives in an effort to establish itself as a socially conscious organization, one based on the twin pillars of football and the community. As the proverbial jewel in the NFL's crown, the Super Bowl is an institution composed of many…… [Read More]

Currently, the charity sector is facing various difficulties including a reduction in the funding amount and the need to adopt the use of the ever-changing technology. esides, the communication means is dynamic hence creating emptiness in service provision. However, it embraces new ideas and innovation that prepare the corporate field for the future. Risk management is the process of ensuring that the occurrence of various risks or activities does not cause any financial loss to the entity (Merna, and Al-Thani, 2011). This differs to corporate governance, which refers to the identification and clarification of activities and responsibilities undertaken by various individuals in an organization (rikend, 2014).

Public Motives for Participation in

Words: 555 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 73204902

Among those which emerge as the most important and most commonly overlapping causes for participation, the article cites " (i) personal involvement with the good cause(s) supported by an occasion, (ii) opportunities to lead a healthy lifestyle provided by the event, (iii) an individual's involvement with the sport in question, and (iv) the desire to mix socially with other attendees." (Bennett et al., 155)

The article also makes a point of distinguishing a 'serious-minded' demographic for consideration, within which motives for participation take on slightly different proportions. That is to say that the article differentiates between general participants and those with a more active orientation toward both exercise and charity engagement. In this case, motives which emerged as most important were health and fitness; a previous involvement with the activity in question; and a more general social tendency toward high profile charity activities.

Non-Profit Corporations and For-Profit Business: Comparison of the Ethical and Liability Issues that are Faced by Both There have been a lot of scandals lately regarding large for-profit businesses. These scandals stem from both ethical and legal issues. Many of these scandals have resulted in lawsuits and even criminal proceedings against those who have been involved with them. The true extent of corporate liability is just beginning to be seen in our society. We are watching the large corporations of this country ever more closely now, in order to make sure that they are acting in an ethical manner.

Communicative Approach to Acts 25 30

Words: 3276 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 15176785

With St. Paul, Luke traveled to several different destinations including Samothrace and Philippi -- where he appears to have lingered to guide the Church. The duo then reunite in Troas and Luke is with St. Paul during the latter's stay in a oman jail. As Paul says: "Only Luke is with me" (2 Timothy 4:11).

Exactly what Luke did with Paul during this time is debated: "St. Jerome thinks it is most likely that St. Luke is 'the brother, whose praise is in the gospel through all the churches' (2 Corinthians 8:18), and that he was one of the bearers of the letter to Corinth" (Knight, 2011).

Luke also brings special awareness to the importance of mercy and forgiveness, with the parable of the Prodigal Son and the tale of the woman whose sins were forgiven because she bathed Christ's feet in her tears.

But this special awareness is also…… [Read More]

Social Policies in the Workplace

Words: 1644 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 32828938

Social work history displays that the desire of social justice is both a task and a myth for employees and their immediate predecessors in organizations. This study provides a critical analysis of Janet Finn's and Maxine Jacobson's work titled "Just Practice." The great focus is on the first and the third chapter where their contributions and critical omissions are identified. Finn and Jacobson have worked hard to illustrate the historical development of social work, which was largely premised on charity for the poor (Finn, & Jacobson, 2003). In both chapters, they have elaborated in length on how social work came into being. Ideally, social work history revolves around the industrial revolution and the way the rise of capitalism created a gap between the rich and the poor. In the first chapter, the role of Charity Organization Societies and Settlement House Movement as the pioneers of social work has been elucidated…… [Read More]

Naturewise Apparel -- Media Policy

Words: 1021 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75888184

Additionally, the 3rd party relationship that Naturewise has ostensibly agreed to is also critical. Naturewise is not directly affiliated with any organization to which CHICAE has maintained alliances to.

The decentralization of the departmental activity essentially means that the organization has decided to fund non-profits like CHICAE rather than to directly deal with the communities-based charities directly. Therefore, the lack of control Naturewise Apparel has over the oversight of the activities of any organization that will receive funding from their philanthropy is subject to the ability the outsourced solution, in this case, CHICAE.

The resolution to this issue is best resolved by not hesitating with the press and to tackle the issue head on.

History Of Human Services

When the Kalamazoo Foundation began in 1925, the welfare state in the U.S. was minimal, and on the federal level almost nonexistent. Problems of poverty, hunger, racism, unemployment, and inadequate education were largely left to the start and local levels to be dealt with by private charities and religious organizations. This only changed with the expansion of the federal safety net during the New Deal of the 1930s and the Great Society of the 1960s, although it has been contracting again over the last thirty years. During the Progressive Era of 1900-20 and into the next decade, civic-minded philanthropists and capitalists often took the lead in dealing with the social and economic problems of urban, industrial America, among them Dr. W.E. Upjohn, founder of Upjohn Pharmaceuticals. In addition to donating the first $1,000 in stock to establish the Kalamazoo Foundation, Upjohn also founded Bronson Methodist Hospital,…… [Read More]

Frost Hughes Alexie the Meaning of Home

Words: 1380 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83366662

Frost, Hughes, Alexie

The Meaning of "Home" in Frost's "Hired Hand," Hughes' "Landlord" and Alexie's "I ill Redeem"

Robert Frost writes in "The Death of the Hired Hand," "Home is the place where, when you have to go there, / They have to take you in" (122-3). Implicit in these lines is the notion that "home" carries certain rules. "Home" is not just a place devoid of higher meaning, but an abstract idea -- a concept bound by a principle of belonging, of submitting, of caring. Just as Langston Hughes shows in "Ballad of the Landlord" (with the tension between negligent landlord and suffering tenant) or as Sherman Alexie shows in "hat You Pawn I ill Redeem" (Jackson sharing a portion of his winnings with Mary, whom he considers family -- "It's an Indian thing"), the principles of "home" are understood and upheld by those who realize its deeper meaning.…… [Read More]

This suggests that the company uses exoticism and a romanticism of Africa as a marketing strategy, even while not fully recompensing the tribe for their inspiration for the product. The name of the shoe implies a connection, even though none exists. This seems blatantly unfair to the Masai as creators.

Dwumfour says that the Swiss company does support charities that contribute to the tribe's well-being, but giving charity to an impoverished tribe is not the same thing as treating the tribe members like full business partners, with a continuing relationship with the company. Charity can always be withdrawn, versus having a direct interest in the business, with mandatory royalties. The Masai cannot bring suit against the company for copyright infringement, thus they are fair game to be exploited by marketers from Europe.

However, interviews with Masai tribesmen suggest that tribe members are not particularly upset by this relationship. Some said…… [Read More]

Peter Singer Explication of Peter Singer's Famine

Peter Singer

Explication of Peter Singer's "Famine, Affluence, and Morality"

Peter Singer's objective in "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" is to raise activism in the general public with regard to ending famine and conditions of abject poverty. The focus of the article concerns the public's need to take greater action. His argument stems from his view that "At the individual level, people have, with very few exceptions, not responded to the situation in any significant way" (1). Thus, people have a moral obligation to assist those who are impoverished, and even those in remote locations should not be excluded from aid.

A main focus of Singer's article concerns moral utility, and exactly how much people are morally obligated to provide to those who are impoverished. Singer argues that there has traditionally been an overly severe distinction between duty and charity; people are quick to fulfill their duties, while charity is viewed…… [Read More]

Famine, Affluence, Morality by Peter Singer

Peter Singer's article has been reviewed with the intention of understanding his basic ideas about poverty and hunger alleviation. Simultaneously the many criticisms associated with his arguments have also been highlighted with a view to rebutting them and proving the feasibility of Singer's noble ideas.

"Famine, Affluence, Morality" is a famous dissertation scripted by Peter Singer in 1971. It aims to modify the standard estern culture by urging people to perform acts of charity. It articulates that more affluent individuals are morally and ethically obligated to donate as much as they can to the people who need resources the most. It is as such, an essay that is considered a humanitarian doctrine of sorts which authentically argues over the reasons as to why one ought to give more. It is based on the less than favorable conditions of Bangladesh's ar…… [Read More]

The situation in this case study revolves around Sally, a member of the Board of Sally Susie's Donut Shop, Inc. (SSDS). SSDS uses an accrual method of accounting and over the past three years has seen volatile sales. Sally is unhappy with her previous tax advisor and wants new advice.

For tax purposes, it is important to forecast cash flow and income. Sally, in Y1 you posted taxable income of $250k, in Y2 $10k, and in Y3 $150K. Were these numbers based on actual gross sales, or did your deductions and depreciation change drastically between Y1 and Y2?

Eras in Human Services

The Industrial evolution created tremendous wealth for certain segments of the population -- but also tremendous poverty. The expansion of the nation's urban population, particularly its urban poor, created the need for more effective social services. These needs were first fulfilled by private organizations like the American Charity Organization Society (COS). City slums were growing fast in all areas affected by industrialization -- during the late 19th century approximately 30% of all London residents lived below the poverty line (The Settlement Movement, 2013, Columbia Federation of Settlements). The Settlement Movement, a community-based approach to social welfare which set up neighborhood welfare centers began in London but soon spread to America. It came to embody one approach to social work, one which stressed the need for "a holistic approach to neighborhood improvement and a belief that social change comes through indigenous leaders and organizations" (The Settlement Movement,…… [Read More]

However, one must consider the context of the petition. Given today's knowledge of Native American-colonial relations, I question whether or not the issues in the petition are hyperbolized. Were the colonists similarly torturing the Native Americans? Did they want to create a militia just to rid the area of people they saw as pests? or, were these people really harming and murdering the colonial population in this area?

Week 4: Nathaniel Bacon on Bacon's Rebellion

In today's culture, we often wonder how such blatant racism could have existed in history that Native Americans were removed and killed with such impunity during the revolutionary years. Bacon, on Bacon's Rebellion, does an excellent job of explaining how these attitudes could have existed. Bacon begins by tying his rebellion to God and what is just, although today we may call him the unjust. Toward the end of his essay, he argues that the…… [Read More]

Whilst I talk, some poor farmer drudges & slaves for me" (Journals 9: 126). He feels that a real reformer is the one who would refuse to purchase or use slave-produced goods and in this regard he noted: "Alas! alas! my brothers, there is never an abolitionist in New England" (Journals 9:128).

Thus reform though it has been an important subject has often elicited different responses from thinkers and writers. While some connected it with religion, others completely kept religion away from it. Winthrop's brand of reform is not only different from Emerson's but the former will never find any endorsement of his views in the writings of Emerson's. The latter was more involved and interested in individualistic reform that focused on change within one's self instead of institutionalized change. The different in thinking can be attributed to the different time periods in which they composed their thoughts.

Cognitive bias and Social Desirability Bias in esearch Study

Cognitive Bias

Exercise 1: Impact of cognitive biases on the research process.

Cognitive bias is an individual's tendency to base an opinion or decision on inconsistent perception or knowledge of research data. Cognitive bias may cause either a success or failure of a project. The nature of decisions by the researcher may contribute to the success or failure of the research project. A direct effect or impact is that, cognitive bias can cause significant negative impacts on the perception of projects risks. Cognitive bias has direct impacts on the research process, and it is easy to identify the impacts of cognitive bias based on the previous or past information applied in carrying out research. According to Haselton, Nettle and Andrews (2005:724-746), cognitive bias is an error in judgment caused by memory, societal ascription, and arithmetical errors.

In this sense, these often were violent and radical in the sense that a lot of people suffered as a result of such protests. One of the most important movements and one which still exists today is the Punk movement (Clark, 2004). Although it is most famous for its image of the different music this movement adopted, its initiatives are considered to be wider in range and scope. In this sense, they tend to rebel mostly against the capitalist nature of the economies, the pressures third world countries have to endure as a result of globalization, but most importantly they tend to be anarchists.

ecause the $750.00 was given as a donation to the non-profit organization, it will be viewed as an asset. Since the preparation of the tax return was given in exchange for the donation, it is considered a gift and thus not an asset.

Next, one must inquire as to whether the firm of Good and Good's liability should be measured at out of pocket cost, at full costs, or at market value? As has previously been explained, if sued for professional malpractice, the court is most likely to hold Good and Good liable for the full amount of damages to Mr. Pinchpenny that was caused by their professional negligence. Thus, Good and Good's liability is likely to be measured at market value.

The final question that needs to be asked is whether or not any amount in excess of what the firm of Good and Good intended to contribute to…… [Read More]

Morality in Little omen

In Louisa May Alcott's Little omen, Josephine March is able to be moral despite the great pressures and responsibilities imposed on her by her gender, the economic and political circumstances of the time, her role as elder sister, and her immense creative talent. However, Jo is also notoriously stubborn, proud, and easily provoked to anger, vices that consistently challenge her moral resolve throughout her adolescence and early adulthood, but ultimately Jo is able to overcome these vices with the help of moral guidance given to her from her family and upbringing so that she matures into a humble, charitable, and temperate character, far more mature than the fiery character of her youth.

The first instance of Jo's vices getting the best of her is when she remains angry at Amy for burning her manuscript even after Amy apologizes. The next day Jo does not warn Amy…… [Read More]

The images of a Salvation Army officer ringing a bell for change at Christmastime or of a Salvation Army band playing in the background on a street corner are iconic. However, the modern Salvation Army is an international charity organization that has taken a form that likely could not have been dreamed of by its founder. In 1865, a London minister named William Booth created a church for the poor and disenfranchised. Booth did not specifically intend to found a charity. However, after developing the East London Christian Mission, Booth gradually began to conceive of an army that would spread the gospel to the world. Booth understood that ministering to the physical needs of the poor would make the disenfranchised more receptive to the Salvation Army's message. Booth viewed it as his Christian duty to…… [Read More]

However, a corporate executive, according to Friedman, would have to spend other people's money for a general social interest, by means of reducing returns to stockholders, lowering worker wages, or raising the price of products. However, herein lies the basic flaw of this author's reasoning, for the social responsibility of the business as it falls on the executive is to make sacrifices for the benefit of others. In a position of such power, a business executive needs to make policy decisions that might actually cut into his own profits, as opposed to the wages of the workers or the wallets of the consumers. While this author may argue that the only responsibility of the business is to make profits using all available resources, engaging in open and free competition without fraudulent activity, a business is a controllable extension of those who own and run it, and just as we have…… [Read More]

Full creativity allows the production of greater wealth, for a stronger and more evolved society.

Further in defense of the moral systems or perceived lack thereof in terms of newly created wealth, D'Souza asserts that most wealth currently created is the result of personal effort, rather than means such as inheritance. The wealth can then indeed be seen as the reward for effort, rather than wealth as a result of luck in its pure sense. Morality's role should then not be concerned so much with justifying the accumulated wealth, but rather with using it wisely for the benefit of humanity, creativity, freedom and evolution.

Another characteristic of freedom, as seen above, is the recognition of new and revolutionary ideas, and implementing those when they are superior to the old. In terms of economy this is as true as in terms of morals. Those in power for example refuse to accept…… [Read More]

Hannah More

Like many abolitionists, Hannah More built her philosophy on a firm foundation of religion and spiritual thought. Her poems "Sensibility" and "The Slave Trade" present imagery related to spiritual concepts and ideals that she uses to persuade a sensible Christian audience against the slave trade. More crafts her abolitionist poetry around philosophical ideals as well as spiritual ones, and the poet appeals to reason as much as to emotion. In her poem "Sensibility: An Epistle to the Honourable Mrs. Boscawen," More emphatically elevates sensibility above religiosity: "if RELIGION'S bias rule the soul, / Then SENSIBILITY exalts the whole," (353-4). More elaborates on the theme of distorted religion throughout "The Slave Trade," by accusing proponents of slavery of arrogance, "insulted reason," and "natural evils," (141; 156). However, More's argument is rooted in sensibility, that elusive quality that, like God, cannot be defined. More describes sensibility like she would describe…… [Read More]

Criminal Justice Ethics

In the U.S. legal system, magistrates have been given tremendous amounts of power. This is because they play a central role in reducing the workloads for the courts. In a number of cases, they can work on special assignments for them. These are individuals who are appointed to perform a specific function (such as: supervising discovery and pretrial proceedings). The different powers can place someone in a position where they can abuse their authority. ("Code of Conduct," 2012)

In the case that is being examined, the magistrate has engaged in questionable behavior. To fully understand what is happening there will be a focus on if these activities are considered to be unethical and if they should be disciplined. Together, these different elements will show how these activities are considered to be unethical.

Which, if any, of these activities would be considered unethical? Why?

It was my responsibility as lead surgeon to select the most appropriate heart transplant recipient from a pool of three candidates, each of whom had suffered from several health-related issues that adversely affected their suitability for the transplant procedure. Therefore, in order to formulate as subjective an analysis as possible in a timely fashion, a utilitarian ethical analytical approach was used to identify the candidate that held the most promise of using the gift of additional life from the heart donor to its maximum advantage.

ather than continue the process that began in the first two books, in which the osicrucian Order first announced themselves, gave their history, and then responded to certain criticisms while making their position within Christian theology clearer, the Chymical Wedding can almost be seen as the first instance of literature written within the osicrucian tradition, rather than as part of its manifesto-like founding documents, because it does not seek to explain the history of osicrucianism, but rather explicate how the teachings and underlying beliefs of osicrucianism contribute to and alter one's interpretation of Christian scripture (Williamson 17; Dickson 760). Specifically, one can see a distinct connection between the Chymical Wedding and seventeenth-century attempts to expand Protestantism throughout Europe.
