The Athlete’s Delimma:
A young man just found out he was the number one NFL draft pick and has received a 25 million dollar contract to play for his favorite football team. After celebrating at his favorite restaurant with his family and friends he prepares to head home. As he walks out to the parking lot, he sees a vaguely familiar man standing beside his car. The man runs up and hugs him telling him how proud he is of him. After releasing from his embrace he looks at the man and realizes it is his father whom he hasn’t seen since he was 7 years old. His father apologizes and asks to be a part of his life. Should he forgive him?
1) Briefly discuss Aristotle’s concept of natural justice and conventional justice. Which approach to justice should the Athlete take to make the most moral decision?
2) Which of Aristotle’s virtues would proscribe that the young athlete forgives his father? Which, if any, of the virtues would proscribe that he cut off his father?
3) Use Kant’s Categorical Imperative to evaluate the outcome of the Athlete choosing to forgive his father. Then use the Categorical Imperative to evaluate the outcome of the Athlete choosing to ignore his father. Is one to choice to be preferred over the other from a Kantian perspective?
4) Make a Utilitarian evaluation (fraction) to evaluate the outcome of the Athlete choosing to forgive his father. Then make a Utilitarian evaluation (fraction) to evaluate the outcome of the Athlete choosing to ignore his father? Which choice will bring the greatest amount of pleasure over the least amount of pain?
5) What are the relevant social contracts as it pertains to this dilemma? Identify the social contracts that call for the Athlete should regard his father given the circumstances.
