Every moral theory developed in the Western tradition purports to tell us what a good life is. However, most people would judge someone who perfectly embodied the ideals of any one of these theories not to be living a good life—the kind of life they would want for themselves and their children. The statements above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?
A) Most people desire a life for themselves and their children that is better than a merely good life.
b) A person who fits the ideals of one moral theory in the Western tradition would not necessarily fit the ideals of another.
c) Most people have a conception of a good life that does not match that of any moral theory in the Western tradition.
d) A good life as described by moral theories in the Western tradition cannot be realized.
e) It is impossible to develop a theory that accurately describes what a good life is.
This was a good one. What is the source of these questions? Please post more of these
The argument basically says most people do not approve of a certain life even if it complies with one of the theory of "good life"
A. This argument means that the people who judge the person leading a good life according to a particular theory is not viewed as to be leading a good life. However we cannot assume whether it is viewed as better or worse.
B. If this were true then the person would get a lot of support from the group which embodied the same tradition. That is not the case as he or she is judged by the majority.
C. BINGO. This hits the jackpot by saying that regardless of whatever theoritical tradition of life somebody adopts, he or she will be judged by most people.
D. We don't know this. The argument, on the other hand implies some people do adopt some of the traditions.
E. Who knows? May be it is. This kind of language is almost always wrong in the GMAT. And also, this argument deals with perceptions of most people not the realization of theories.
