A Farewell to Arms by Mind Map: A Farewell to Arms

1. Duty and Obligation

1.1. To what extent should one follow duty above all?

1.1.1. Duty to what? Duty can be in reference to many ideas. It could be duty to themselves, or a higher cause such as religion, morals and ideals, or a country. So if everyone has multiple duties to multiple beliefs, do they need to prioritize their obligations? Does their moral beliefs trump that of their duty to their country? Or have any of the characters in A Farewell to Arms found a way to compromise their duties or integrate their obligations together?

1.1.2. Duty: term that conveys a sense of moral commitment or obligation to someone or something.

1.1.3. Obligation: an act or course of action to which a person is morally or legally bound; a duty or commitment.
