Question and answer
if you have good morals and manners, is it possible to not have good ethics?
If you have good principles, then you will act ethically. Ethics of responsibility challenges this, saying that you must understand the consequences of your decisions and actions and answer to these, not just your high-minded principles. [ The medical maxim 'do no harm', for example, is based in the outcome-oriented ethics of responsibility. Values, morals and ethics Explanations > Values > Values, morals and ethics Values | Morals | Ethics | So what? What are the differences between values, morals and ethics? They all provide behavioral rules, after all. It may seem like
splitting hairs, but the differences can be important when persuading others. Values Values are the rules by which we make decisions about right and wrong, should and shouldn't, good and bad. They also tell us which are more or less important, which is useful when we have to trade off meeting one value over another. Dictionary.com defines values as: n : beliefs of a person or social group in which they have an emotional investment (either for or against something); "he has very conservatives values" Morals Morals have a greater social element to values and tend to have a very broad acceptance. Morals are far more about good and bad than other values. We thus judge others more strongly on morals than values. A person can be described as immoral, yet there is no word for them not following values. Dictionary.com defines morals as: n : motivation based on ideas of right and wrong Ethics You can have professional ethics, but you seldom hear about professional morals. Ethics tend to be codified into a formal system or set of rules which are explicitly adopted by a group of people. Thus you have medical ethics. ]
