Write a report based upon the Consequentialist ethical theories learned during the course of this milestone. Your instructor wants you and your co-workers to think about your own moral viewpoint. Analyze the motivation behind some of the decisions you have made and the actions you have taken and try to determine the extent to which you were motivated by self-interest. Have you ever done, what might be called, a purely altruistic act? Does this analysis of motivation lead you to believe that psychological egoism is an accurate description of how human beings live their lives? To what extent do you agree and if not, why? (Thiroux 44)
