Study guide for the “5 Steps Approach” and “The Robot Love”
1. In your own words, explain the meaning of ethics and morality. Then, explain the
difference between these two terms.
Ethics: philosophical reflection of the norms and practices of social morality. Rules provided by an external source.
Morality: traditions or beliefs of what human conduct is right and wrong human conduct. A Social Institution. Individual’s Idea.
2. Why do we need to reflect on morality?
When we make a decision, we need to think about whether or not we are violating
someone else’s rights. Certain actions should or should not be performed due to their
outcomes. Society expects us to take into account other people’s interest.
3. Explain what common and particular morality is and how it is determined.
Common Morality: GENERAL, UNIVERSAL set of norms shared by all people who are committed to morality in a given society. All people judged by that standard. Determined by culture, religion, philosophical sources.
Particular Morality: Present CONCRETE, NON-UNIVERSAL, and content rich norms. Ex.) lawyer code prevents lawyer from turning in client because of confidentiality.
4. Understand and explain, in your own words, what the four approaches to study ethics are.
The Non-normative Approach: does not take any moral position on the issue under study, based strictly on facts. Studies why it is considered immoral, does not judge.
1. Descriptive Ethics: Factual description and explanations. Historians,
2. Metaethics: analysis of the meaning of central ethical terms. Terms: rights,
The Normative approach: Makes an ethical decision on the issue.
3. General Normative approach: what basic principles govern moral
behavior. Help develop policies.
