In this activity you will be presented with 19 different moral scenarios. In each
case, you will be asked to make a judgment about what is the morally right thing
to do. When you have answered all the questions, you will be presented with an analysis
of your responses that should reveal some interesting things about your moral
framework and how it compares to others who have completed the activity.
Before starting Morality Play, it is important to bear the following in mind: At
no time in the activity will your responses to the moral dilemmas be judged to be
'correct' or 'incorrect'.
You should respond with what you think is the morally right thing to do, which may
not be the same as what you would actually do. Several questions talk about 'moral
obligation'. In this activity, to say you are morally obliged to do something
means you must do that thing in order to behave morally. When the moral obligation
is 'strong', this means not doing what is obligated of you is a serious wrongdoing;
when the obligation is 'weak', failing to do what is obligated of you is still a
wrongdoing, but not a serious one.
Finally, remember to read each moral dilemma very carefully. You will find there
are similarities between some of the scenarios. However, don't let this lure you
into responding without thinking - each scenario needs at least some thought!
