Moral Actions: Motivations and Relevance
The required textbook chapters and the “An Extended Conception of Rationality and Moral Actions” article discuss moralism and rational choice (Roh, 2003). For this discussion, explain the significance of criminal justice professionals accepting the importance of moral actions in their professions. Can the greater good be served by people merely doing what they are told is morally right, or must professionals actually accept and believe in the need for moral conduct in order to best serve the effective administration of criminal justice agencies? Provide at least of one example to support your conclusion.
