As Example

Duty

  

Scene

Ethical argument

 

Javert demanded that Valjean stand   for a trial for breaking parole even though years had passed and Valjean   served as Mayor of a city.

Javert had a duty to others as a   police to treat Valjean as a criminal. His duty to do the right thing even though the end result did not make   sense, and even though Valjean was really no longer a criminal. He demonstrated fidelity to his profession   as a police officer.

 

 

 

 

 

Consequentialism

  

Scene

Ethical argument

 

The Villagers were   willing to take even gold fillings from Fantine for re-sale and   personal gain.

It was OK to use and   abuse a woman for personal gain.  It is an example of Hedonism where   there is no regard for another person, looking only for personal gain.

 

 

 

 

Cultural Relativism

  

Scene

Ethical argument

 

When Fantaine was being abused and   mocked by her co-workers because she had a baby when she was not married.

Culturally, a woman   was shunned by others when she had a baby when she was not married.  It   was justified because of Culturalism, where right and wrong is determined by   your community.
