Warrants

“In view of the increasing interest in health in general, and nutrition and exercise in particular, do you think that universities and

colleges should impose physical education requirements? if so, what form should they take? If not, why not? What warrant underlies your

position?”

Another warrants question: “Both state and federal governments have been embroiled in controversies concerning the rights of citizens to

engage in harmful practices. In Massachusetts, for example, a mandatory seat-belt law was repealed by voters who considered the law an

infringement of their freedom. (It was later reinstated.)” (p. 236). What principles do you believe should guide government regulation of

dangerous practices? In other words, what are your warrants regarding situations in which individuals wish to engage in dangerous

practices? What are your warrants based on?
