UW in the Classroom

Discovering Worlds Past and Present

After watching the first episode of Breaking Bad and thinking of the study we have done in class, read stimulus material below and write a reflection on the following prompt: “Could Walter White’s decisions be justified, and what are the likely consequences of his initial step into deceit?”  

As you write, answer a few questions: should he have done it, why (or under what circumstances would it be) justified, and is he a sympathetic character?

In your response, you should use one of the philosophers/philosophies we have in looked at in class, refer to your own decision making preferences, and integrate (using embedded citations) text from the article.
