  1. How is psychological egoism related to ethical egoism? Discuss how egoism does or might appear in the following practices: 1) police officers, 2) district attorneys and prosecutors, 3) defense attorneys.  How is ethical egoism evident in the cases of serial killers?
  2. Read the case, “On Pity, Egoism and Criminal Justice” (Box 5.2, pg. 108). Answer the question: Do you agree or disagree (justify your response)?
  3. To what extent does the fear of punishment motivate you to act morally? To what extent are you motivated to obey the law because of the existence of punishment for violating the law?  Why do serial killers like Dahmer seem to disregard the fear of punishment for the rewards they perceive are gained by their horrific crimes against humanity?
  4. Psychopathic offenders like Jeffrey Dahmer are said to lack conscience. Dahmer tortured, mutilated, and killed a number of young men before having sexual intercourse with them. He was eventually caught by the police and murdered by a fellow prisoner. Can we expect moral/ethical behavior from somebody like Dahmer?  Why or why not?
