IB Core - Reflective Project

The current global situation will seem very strange and challenging to all of us at times, but it does offer you as potential Reflective Project students a contemporary opportunity to explore ethical issues and dilemmas created by the Covid-19 outbreak.

Depending on what your other areas of study will be, try to think what ethical issues and dilemmas arising from the current situation could apply to your area of study.
SOME QUESTIONS THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER ARE:
  • Is online shopping for non-essential items putting people at unnecessary risk?

  • Have workers’ rights been strengthened or weakened by the covid-19 outbreak?

  • Has the global pandemic revealed inherent flaws in the use of statistics?

  • Is the policy of ‘herd immunity’ defensible?

  • Should advertisers include a pandemic ‘narrative’ in their advertising in order to sell non-essential goods?

  • Would you rather live in a single-party state or a democracy during a pandemic?

For some light relief, you might want to watch The Good Place on Netflix (see attached link). It is a light-heated romp through the world of philosophy and ethics which is very funny at times, but is based on some quite profound, ancient principles.
