Read the attached Ethics-IV.pdf Download Ethics-IV.pdfwhich continues the discussion on how software engineers can actually live up to ethical standards and what is the end goal of an ethical life in software engineering.
Then proceed to answer the questions inside the reading:
- Questions 6.1 and 6.2
- Question 7.1
How can software engineers live up to their ethical obligations, both
professionally and in their private lives?
There are a number of common habits and practices that create obstacles to living
well in the moral sense; fortunately, there are also a number of common habits and
practices that are highly conducive to living well:
Five Ethically Constructive Habits of Mind and Action:
1. Self- Reflection/Examination: This involves spending time on a regular basis
(even daily) thinking about the person you want to become, in relation to the
person you are today. It involves identifying character traits and habits that you
would like to change or improve in your private and professional life; reflecting on
whether you would be happy if those whom you admire and respect most knew all
that you know about your actions, choices and character; and asking yourself how
fully you are living up to the values you profess to yourself and others.
2. Looking for Moral Exemplars: Many of us spend a great deal of our time, often
more than we realize, judging the shortcomings of others. We wallow in irritation or anger at what we perceive as unfair, unkind or incompetent behavior of others,
we comfort ourselves by noting the even greater professional or private failings of
others, and we justify ignoring the need for our own ethical improvement by noting
that many others seem to be in no hurry to become better people either. What we
miss when we focus on the shared faults of humanity are those exemplary actions
we witness, and the exemplary persons in our communities, that offer us a path
forward in our own self-development. Exemplary acts of forgiveness, compassion,
grace, courage, creativity and justice have the power to draw our aspirations
upward; especially when we consider that there is no reason why we would be
incapable of these actions ourselves. But this cannot happen unless we are in the
habit of looking for, and taking notice of, moral exemplars in the world around us.
Because for many ethics questions there is no absolutely right or wrong answers as such, your responses will be graded based on completeness and thoughtfulness as opposed to rote or perfunctory ones. There are three grade levels for this assignment based on your responses to all the questions: 20 (no reasoning in responses), 35 (minimal to little reasoning), and 50 (sufficient reasoning and consideration).
Write your answers in a Word file using Times New Roman font (no smaller than 10 pt but no bigger than 12 pt), single spacing, 1″ margins on all sides. AT LEAST 2 PAGES.
