Question and answer
What is the most convincing ethical system? Why?
Our most carefully elaborated ethical doctrines are substitutes for the innate patterns of behavior of these protomoral animals, or attempts to improve on them and to regulate our lives by principles that are ideally satisfying. [ Such doctrines are as diverse as temperaments, social habits, and metaphysical speculations. Yet it is obvious that all which are neither mere vaporous theorizing nor
the expression of a hedonic mania, but give guidance to conduct and lead life to its fulfillment, must possess features in common; for all have roots in our primal nature, and all depend for their motive or appeal on deeply imbedded impulses, appetites, or aspirations. Unless it derives force from some vital impulse, the most carefully reasoned system of ethics may command our admiration by its careful logical articulation but it can never move us to act. ]

What makes aquifers most susceptible to drought User: What is the most convincing ethical system? Why?
Weegy: Every animal which lives prosperously, preserving its species from generation to generation, has of necessity a well-articulated system of behavior. [ Such systems range from the genetically transmitted patterns of behavior of an insect or a fish, which probably never deliberately tries to improve its conduct, to a carefully thought-out scheme of philosophic ethics. Because, as we shall see, all these systems, from the most primitive to the most advanced, possess many features in common and serve the same vital purpose, it will be useful to have a single term to designate the whole range of them. Students of animal behavior now call their science “ethology,” because it deals with the ethos, the customs and usages, of the various kinds of animals. Thus the terms “ethics” and “ethology” are of cognate origin, and both are concerned with the study and interpretation of conduct. ] (More)
