DISCUSSION QUESTION AND REPLIES
*How would you describe the schools of ethical thought?*
In my reading, in modern philosophy, there are three primary schools of thought: (1) Consequentialism; (2) Deontology; and (3) Virtue Ethics. It has got different faces and tactics. The main idea is that ethics is based on our actions rather than on laws, sympathy, or goals. Consequences Gladness and joy is good. For example, for the maximum number, the benefits of being right are visible. Morality has different types of morals in law. The main idea is that ethics has a basis on rules, expectations and good intentions. The results are meaningless as long as the human heart is in the right place (Bostock, 2000). Good happiness, whether it brings joy or suffering, is adherence to rules and sacred laws.
Generally, faith is religion. Morality is a new type of honesty. This function is a test of all morals, and the central concept is that for all, even children, it is free. Promises that are immoral or violated are irreversible; this relies on ethics (Bostock, 2000). For those who advocate justice, believe that sometimes referred to as a goal, or at least a goal of personal pleasure, if someone lives with practical intelligence. One is living in harmony with man’s nature. There are four central or classic virtues: wisdom of care, power of justice (courage), and the same (self-control). These are being tested in the work of Plato. Religion also has three well-known religious attributes: belief, optimism, and devotion. Certain qualities, such as excellence, loyalty, dedication to caring, integrity, and patriotism, are generally described as multiplication and citizenship (Bostock, 2000). Therefore, with excellence and perfection, modesty and resolve to recognise and eject, they may contribute to the value of the’ five kings.
Bostock, D. (2000). Aristotle’s ethics.
In our societies and organisations as a whole, ethics plays a vital role. Ethics has made a significant contribution to guidance, unity and stability between today’s people. Organisational ethics, on the other hand, have encouraged organisations to create a stable work environment and culture to help bring harmony among employees and employers and make the company more productive. Various people have come up with different ethical viewpoints that are in use now. Including these legal universities. Consequentialism-This ethics school propagated that ethical behaviour could have an assessment by looking at the effects of an individual’s or a group of people’s actions. Therefore, this means that one cannot have the interpretation of what is moral or not based solely on the activity, but instead use the consequences of the acts and make the final decision on the behaviour.
The personal views and principles in deontological philosophy of ethics. From the viewpoint of an adult, what is moral or not is decided according to this school. It has been criticised, however, because people can act in a certain way. This approach is considered evil, and it defends itself that it is moral according to them. Thus, it would lead to chaos as each individual has the freedom to act as they wish and protect themselves. Virtue ethics-This is the last school of ethics which centres on defining universal moral values that can be used to decide what may or may not be ethical. This system of ethics is one of the most widely used by individuals and organisations today as it seeks to create a code of conduct that is universally accepted. So which of the above is the best ethics school?
