Here in this blog post I am trying to understand, what information is available on the best search engines on the internet.
Coming back to the searches for India and USA, and appling the rules that keep the searches on high ranks, the conclusion could be most of the information which is more ‘Cyber savvy’ are more of theory based, where as the ones on the USA is more consumer centric.
Hence, I would conclude with a fraise, that was constantly imbibed throughout my education, specially while studing architecture.
“God lies is details”
Ethics The dictionary meaning would be something like this
A system of moral principles: the ethics of a culturethe rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions
a particular group, culture, etc.: medical ethics; Christian ethics.
Moral principles, as of an individualOr That branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.
Why I choose this word for my first blog post, well, it is one of the things that cross my mind whenever I think of practice and it as a strong link to my interests that include social science and psychology. In my view we as individual and we as a group of individuals forming a society form, practice, reform and regulate ethics.
The main branches of ethics include the ‘Meta-ethics’, ‘Normative Ethics’, ‘Descriptive Ethics’ and the most common form is the ‘Applied Ethics’.
Applied Ethics then divides in a numbers of its branches are utilized in our day to day conduct The ethics in politics and economics Environmental ethicsEthics of profession Ethics of health care Ethics in psychology and the legal ethics This field of ethics, also called as moral philosophy is been defined and redefined by philosophers for centuries. ‘Many conceptions of ethics in the ancient world were based on or influenced by the Greeks, particularly Plato and Aristotle. The former thought that people were inclined to be good and desired happiness; the problem was to know what would bring about that good in the first place. If they acted wrongly, it was due to not understanding how they should go about achieving happiness in the best way—not because they wanted to act wrongly or badly.’- By Paul Newallso, are these theories of ethics written from a vision or are experiences that forms the its systemization. On the one hand, ethics are already decided but need to be discovered—whether they be created by someone or something, or just “waiting” to be found; on the other, they are not set in stone but are discussed in one way or another and arrived at through agreement, with due regard for practicalities. Basis of ethics Natural law, the assessment of results, and the sense of moral obligation: these three (sometimes singly, sometimes mixed together) form the basis of any ethics. Natural law and a sense of moral obligation, usually lead to the framing of general moral principles: that this or that sort of action is right or wrong. It is quite another matter whether it is fair to apply any such general rule to each and every situation. By the same token, the utilitarian assessment of results, although apparently more immediately practical, is always open to the ambiguity of fate, for we never really know the long-term consequences of what we do. In Book 1 of Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle says:
Every art and every enquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim. The assessment of results or the Utilitarianism is a moral theory associated particularly with Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), a philosopher, lawyer and social reformer. It goes on the lines as; the right thing to do on any occasion is that which aims to give maximum happiness for all concerned. And the last but the most ambiguous contributor of ethics is the sense of moral obligation, which is relative to time, space and situation that is constantly changing, hence challenges its definition and quantification in the basis of ethics. The idea of this post is not mere accumulation of definitions and theory on ethics, but an effort to understand it and mostly, to research into something that I followed but never questioned or reasoned into. And from what I understand of ethics is it the third base ‘the sense of moral obligation’ that is most intriguing, cause the entire base shifts to the ‘morals’ which are ever evolving and subject to change constantly. Hope you enjoy the post!
