Workbook exercise 1: Introduction to Ethics

1) Apply each of the ethical frameworks discussed in the lecture to the following scenario using the space provided in the table below (do not go above 1500 words in total).

A surgeon was approached by a political science lecturer who requested that the surgeon amputate the lecturer’s healthy leg. The lecturer had the support of his wife in making this request. He was a member of a small on-line community of persons who shared his desires who called themselves ‘wannabes’ (i.e. want to be amputees). The lecturer told the surgeon “my left leg is not part of me” and that his desire to be an amputee was so intense and all-consuming it was ruining his life to the extent that he was considering either suicide or performing a self-amputation if the surgeon would not undertake the surgery. The lecturer was assessed by a psychiatrist as being competent to make decisions and had received counselling. Does each ethical theory suggest that the surgeon should or should not operate?
