									Religious Studies III
Flatliners Viewing Guide

Use this guide to help focus your viewing of the film for the points and ideas
that will be important in your writing of the reflection paper.

   -   Be aware of how the film answers the moral question – “Does the end
       justify the means?” What is the “end” that the students have in
       mind? What “means” do they use to achieve it?

   -   Be aware of the level of moral development each medical student is
       at and the position – Objectivist, Relativist, or Utilitarian – they
       take. Also be able to identify them as Consequentialist or Non-
       Consequentialist.

   -   What does the film say about the 3R’s of morality?

Also make sure you note any significant lines or scenes that make clear the
understanding that all choices no matter how big or small have consequences.
