Explain why utilitarianism has difficulty accommodating the concept of justice showing how and why the unjust treatment or scapegoating of some people(especially the weak and voiceless)for the sake of the general happiness is in principal possible with this ethical theory.Assume the classical conception of justice as meaning giving each individual his or her due.Critically examine the problem of justice in utilitarian approaches to distributive justice,euthanasia, and abortion. In doing so, select at least three readings that are representative of utilitarianism in social ethics.(one from chapter 8 and one from chapter 1 and one from chapter2.) Consider whether the principal of double effect offers a more satisfactory outcome in each case. Explain and justify your answers.

Reflections on Treatment Options
Prior to beginning work on this journal, please read Chapter 13 in History and Philosophy of Psychology. This journal invites you to engage in creative thinking regarding the future potential for non-evidence-based treatments. Research one of the non-evidence-based treatments from the Chung (2012) e-book, summarize views of this treatment within its historical context, and relate these views to at least one modern theoretical perspective on psychopathology. Devise a strategy for transforming the non-evidence-based treatment into an evidence-based treatment by integrating a specific psychological theory with new or existing research.
