Slide6Ethics (objectives) Define ‘morality’, ‘ethics’ and ‘value judgements’  Give one real life example of ethical relativism  Explain how moral judgments differ if one focuses on the person (virtue ethics), motivation (duty based theories), consequences (utilitarianism) or the situation  Give example of one personal moral judgement  Give examples of ethical issue related to \areas of knowledge  Explain how two ways of knowing are relevant to moral judgements  Give one example to show how knowledge may create moral responsibilities

Slide7Ethics Ethics is a set of rules to regulate the way people behave   Within an organization these rules underpin the aims of the services that created them (doctors have ethical rules es. confidentiality that helps them achieve the aim of their profession)

Slide8Ethics Within our society ethics is a set of clearly stated moral principles that is useful to guide us in our every day relationships with others  My action is ethical if:  I believe it’s right and i am ready to justify it as such  The interest of someone else rather than myself is involved  I must act of my own free will  My action must be deliberate

Slide9Where do ethical principles comefrom?  Philosophers and religious thinkers have developed them  They are called Theories of Conduct:  Religious theories  The Self Interest Theories  The Universal Law theory  The Utilitarian theory

Slide10Religious theories of conduct The major religions in the world have ethical codes which set standards of behavior for their members  The codes are usually revealed through divine revelation, that is directly from a god to a prophet  There are problems with the religious theories of conduct

Slide11The four main religions Hinduism  Buddhism  Islam  Christianity

Slide12The self-interest theory We should aim at the acquisition of all those things we most desire  If we cultivate virtues like generosity, bravery, temperance and loyalty, on the long term these will make us happy (Aristotle - Nichomachean Ethics)  Self-interest is not selfishness: concern for others is rational self-interest

Slide13The universal law theory Kant: the categorical imperative  The universal law: we act in such a way that our actions could become a universal rule of human conduct  The law of respecting others: People should be respected as rational beings with goals of their own. No-one should use people simply to attain their own goals

Slide14The utilitarian theory Actions are right if they are useful, or for the benefit of, the majority  More applicable to governments or organizations rather than being a personal ethical code

Slide15A contemporary definition of the ethical There are no objective moral truths  Ethics was developed in ancient times as the best pragmatic way to survive and then genetically passed on to further generations

Slide16Glossary Morality:  the rightness or wrongness of something as judged by accepted moral standards  Ethics: a system of moral principles governing the appropriate conduct for a person or group  Value judgment: subjective judgment, a judgment of the worth, appropriateness, or importance of somebody or something made on the basis of personal beliefs, opinions, or prejudices rather than facts

Slide17Quotes “Broken promises don’t upset me. I just think, “why did they believe me?” Jack Handy, 1949-  “These are my principles and if you don’t like them – I have others” Groucho Marx, 1890-1977  “Whenever I’m caught between two evils, I take the one I’ve never tried” Mae West, 1892-1980
