Abstract

My primarily aim is to critically evaluate the models of ethical applications as deductive model (normative ethical theories like deontology and consequentialism) and Inductive model to show why a number of models have been failed to furnish appropriate resolution to practical moral problems. Here, for deductive model, I want to call it a “Linear Mechanical Model” because the basic assumption is, if a normative theory is sacrosanct, and then the case is as it is, and conclusion derived about the case will also be correct, true and acceptable. However, traditional ethicists used to apply their ethical theories but they did not know which moral theory was effective on the ground level of reality. Here, I will show you how ethical theories are conflicting to each other into the case of euthanasia. For that, my argument is, the linear model has been failed because it is rigid, often ignores the agents’ intrinsic values and no possible space to amend it, no matter how bizarre the consequence is. Its alternative is Inductive model which suggest us for resolving these problem we should consider Tom Beauchamp and James Childress’ three main principles of autonomy, beneficence (including non-malfeasance) and justice as well as James M. Brown, James C. Callahan, suggestions but the model also has been failed because Beauchamp and Childress’ model could not give a systematic organization to their principles.
