Description:

This paper discusses Hanna Arendt's moral philosophy and how it would be applied to the decision about who to serve in an intensive care unit and Jeremy Bentham's theory of utility and how it would be applied to the decision of torturing Iraqi prisoners in order to gain information on terrorist cells.

From the Paper:

"The determination of how to use the available beds in the intensive care unit if applied to Hannah Arendt's view of morality would encompass all of the following considerations on every given potential admission: first come first served, the most critical and life threatening, those who can afford to pay, the youngest the, oldest, those in the most pain, those who have the best chance to survive and those most valuable to the community."
