### HideShow timer Statistics

Alia: Hawthorne admits that he has influence with high government officials. He further admits that he sold that influence to an environmental interest group. There can be no justification for this kind of unethical behavior.

Martha: I disagree that he was unethical. The group that retained Hawthornes services is dedicated to the cause of preventing water pollution. So, in using his influence to benefit this group, Hawthorne also benefited the public.

Alia and Martha disagree on whether

(A) the meaning of ethical behavior has changed over time

(B) the consequences of Hawthornes behavior can ethically justify that behavior

(C) the standards for judging ethical behavior can be imposed on Hawthorne by another

(D) the meaning of ethical behavior is the same in a public situation as in a private one

(E) the definition of ethical behavior is rooted in philosophy or religion

(B) the consequences of Hawthornes behavior can ethically justify that behavior

Matha believes that the outcome of his behavior benefits the public and therefore feels it is justified, thereby disagreeing with Alia that he was unethical
