Topic: Is it ever moral to break a promise? A rational analysis and conclusion.

Thread: The Reading & Study materials this module/week discuss the complex issue of poverty, and the moral imperative of promise-keeping is mentioned several times. After reviewing the Reading & Study materials, compose a 500-600 word argument that is objective, carefully-constructed, and free of emotion (and hence it should not contain any exclamation points) in support of your opinion on each of the following questions.

  1. Why is promise-keeping morally important?
  2. Is it ever morally permissible to break a promise?
  3. If you answer “yes” to #2, then what are the conditions that render promise-breaking morally acceptable?
  4. If you answer “no” to #2, then explain why you believe it is never permissible. How would you handle difficult scenarios wherein someone has made a promise the keeping of which would have significant undesirable consequences?
  5. Is it ever morally obligatory to break a promise?
  6. If you answer “yes” to #5, what are the conditions that render promise-breaking morally obligatory?

Be sure to carefully define your terms. You are encouraged to support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.

You will be penalized for falling short or exceeding the word count. This is a university-level writing assignment and therefore it must be carefully proofread, free of grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. Do not use slang, emoticons, or abbreviations (as if you are texting or sending an email to a friend).

Submit your thread by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 3.

Reply: After reading your classmates’ threads, choose one to which you will respond, then write a reply that interacts with your classmate’s thread and presents a well-reasoned alternative to his or her approach to the issue. You do not have to defend a position that is diametrically opposed to your classmate’s position, but you do need to either defend a position that is significantly different from his/hers or defend the same position in a very different way. If possible, you must reply to a classmate to whom no one else has yet replied. Treat your classmate’s opinion with sensitivity and respect.

Moral to Break a Promise Clarence H. Reynolds III ETHC 101-D07 LUO Is it ever moral to break a promise? First, let me define what a promise is, a promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen. However, promise keeping is just a moral obligation in my opinion. I know a lot of people agree with me, I’m sure we all experienced someone breaking a promise that was made to us. It didn’t feel good being let down, I think we all can concur. I was taught a promise is a promise and it is an intentional commitment to perform an act or an act of keeping your word. To break a promise makes you seem like a liar, and you lied. However, utilitarianism implies that it is sometimes morally right to break promises and lies....
