Prof Whitney Easton
10 March, 2014
This paper will discuss the topic of military ethics using the utilitarian theory. It will also incorporate the ethical system of virtue ethics. “Military ethics is about our learning what is good and true and then having the courage to do and be what and who we ought to. For military ethics is not about his or her successes or failures; it is not about their virtues or vices. Military ethics is about our heritage and history, and it is about our responsibility to be men and women of character.” (Toner, 2003) Strong military ethics are vital to maintaining disciplined service

‘Situation Ethics is not a practical method of moral decision making?’ How far do you agree?
The strongest argument for situation ethics not being a practical method of moral decision making is that it relies on predicting the consequences of an action. It can be hard to predict the outcome and take every possible situation into account, this will hinder things if if decision is needed quickly, or it can make it impossible to come up with a decision if the long term consequences are unable to be predicted.
Another reason that Situation Ethics is not a practical method of decision making is that Situation Ethics sometimes requires a type of decision making that some people do not have

Personal Ethics Development
According to Treviño and Nelson, ethics are “the principles, norms and standards of conduct governing an individual or organization” (Treviño & Nelson, 2007, p. 13). People are not born with a developed ethical system from individual values and morals. The acquired ethics of a person develops from the time he or she is born and continually through life. Factors influencing personal ethics include family, religion, culture, experiences, and personal reflection.

Ethics are integral parts of business development. In order for an organization to establish oneself it must be distinguishable by its code of ethically behaviors. Organizations are able to flourish or disintegrate based on the behaviors associated with the business. As in life a good name and a good reputation is invaluable for one to succeed, so as it is in business.

1. Explain the role of ethics and social responsibility in developing a strategic plan, considering stakeholder’s needs.
(A) Stakeholder can be a person, group, organization, or system who affects or can be affected by an organization’s actions. Society expects businesses to be responsible both socially and ethically. “Businesses are supposed to respect the environment, pursue fairness in dealing with internal and external customers, and strive to improve their communities” (Romani, 1998). Ignoring the ethical standards will have an adverse impact on businesses as well as the consumers

Ethics at its simplest form is a set of principles of right conduct to be followed in an organisation. If the principles are not followed, there are repercussions to the person who fails to follow the rules. Personally, the word which describes ethics best is trust. When a profession follows a set of ethics, clients are more willing to trust the profession to do there job to the highest standard. This is because the profession gains a good reputation of being on the whole an honest profession. This is particularly important in the accounting profession where ethics have been brought into the spot light over past few years.

Outline the main principals of situation ethics
Situation ethics is based on the idea that you do the most loving thing in a situation, even if it leads to breaking the law. It is known as a relativistic theory. It has no absolute rules that have to be followed in every circumstance. It is also a consequentialist theory, where the end result is held to be of great importance. Finally it is a teleological theory, claiming the morale truth can be found through nature and purpose. Joseph Fletcher, who focused on situation ethics, came to the conclusion that the most loving thing must always be done, as love overwrites anything else in the world. He described situation ethics as a ethical

Environmental Ethical Issues
By definition, environmental ethics refers to the discipline and exercise that guides the exploitation and interactions of human beings and their nonhuman subjects. Many traditions around the world evolved with individual based ethical appreciation of the environment as natural resources and coexistence with other humans was seen as a fundamental norm; thus propagated from generation to the next. The eruption of industrialization in the now new world led to dramatic transformations in the way people interact and use nonhuman environmental elements. Human beings devised discriminatory uses of natural resources as well as establishment of what is

Week 1 Ethics Essay
Ethics is the basis of many theories and debates. It is the basis of deterring what is right and wrong based on one’s beliefs. Topics about ethics often bring about in-depth discussions about individual characteristics concerning virtues, values, and moral concepts. The Virtue Theory, Utilitarianism, and Deontological Ethics are theories that involve those aspects of ethics. These theories have commonalities; however, there are differences in the theories as well.
The Virtue theory often refers to character or ethics. The word “virtue” comes from the Greek word

Virtue Ethics—Analysis of the Virtue Expected | Virtue ethics draws its inspiration from the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 B. C.). In Th e Nicomachean Ethics he explored the nature of a good life. He thought that the goal of life is happiness. Th is is not happiness in a hedonistic sense. Instead, happiness, for Aristotle, is an activity of the soul. We fulfi ll our goal of being happy by living a virtuous life, a life in accordance with reason. Now, virtue is a character of the soul that is demonstrated only in voluntary actions (i.e., in acts that are freely chosen after deliberation). So, we become virtuous by regularly performing virtues acts. But Aristotle also felt that there

What is Business Ethics?
According to Robbins (Pg.174) Ethics are interpreted as the “rules and principals that define right and wrong conduct.” While this sounds straightforward on the surface, if we ask ourselves what right and wrong conduct is, it would be different depending who you ask. Things like race, gender, nationality, age, religion and industry all affect what we interpret to be right and wrong and this is where business ethics

Despite the bad economy, a percentage of businesses have increased their ethical culture from 9 percent to 18 percent in the past two years based on the study done by the Ethics Resource Center. (Nortz, 2010) All businesses should have an ethics code that links professional conduct with the company’s mission, standards and values. (ERC, 2009) Acceptable and unacceptable behavior with consequences should clearly be defined so that all employees know what is expected. Because business ethics and the code of

People often ask questions like, “what should I do?” or “How should I act?” However, the fundamental questions that define ethics allow individuals to evaluate the moral principles behind the rationalization of their actions. Three forms of ethics come to mind and they are virtue theory, utilitarianism, and deontological ethics. Each has differences, which distinguish one from the other, a point this paper will advocate to readers. In addition, this paper explains and addresses each theory in conjunction to ethics and morality, in addition to the relationship between virtue, values, and moral concepts as they relate to each theory.

A Review of Accounting Ethics
Morals and ethics go hand-in-hand, and in the workplace operating an ethical and moral organization is contingent not only on how the administration of the company behaves, but also its personnel (Bush, 2013). How they interact with each other and with customers should be an everyday concern in every aspect of their business (Brown, 2013). Unfortunately, many organizations have been in the news due to accounting ethical breaches. Most of these ethical breaches have affected their customers, employees, and the general public. Though regulation has been increased to prevent continual corporate ethical breaches I believe there is still plenty of room for error

management hired the auditing firm, negotiated the fee and could request the firm perform other services. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires that an audit committee of the company’s Board of Directors hire the auditing firm with restricted duties.

Ethics can be defined as principles or right or wrong. Business decisions should be ethical, but the evidence suggests that is not always what happens. (Hollenbeck, Gerhert, Noe, & Wright 2004) A recent study has shown that 4 out of 10 executives stated that they had been asked to behave unethically. As a result of unfavorable perceptions of U.S. business practices and an increased concern for better serving customers, U.S. companies are becoming more aware of the need for all company representatives to act responsibly (Hollenbeck, Gerhert, Noe, & Wright 2004)

Hence, there exists a two-way understanding between them reflecting mutual expectations on each other’s roles, responsibilities and ethics.

Thus it is also the pragmatic rationale behind that corporations must assess the changing needs of stakeholders and

I am writing to you to make recommendations on the ethics issues referring to the child labor problem raised by both the Swedish and German television documentaries. I think we took the necessary steps in dealing with Swedish documentary that showed children in Pakistan working at weaving looms, by sending a legal team to Geneva to seek input and advice from the International Labor Organization (ILO) on how to deal with the problem. The fact that India, Pakistan, and Nepal were not signatories to the convention implies it is unreasonable to accuse IKEA of violating the law of child labor. However child labor is an ethical issue.

So let’s take a look at this case from deontologist point of view. What’s deontology you ask? Well, it is Immanuel Kant’s Moral Philosophy that moral requirements are based on a standard of rationality he dubbed the “Categorical Imperative” (CI). He believed that ethics are based on reason and freedom. That we have the mental capacity to make moral decisions and so we hold individuals accountable for their actions in ways that children or animals are not. Deontologists believe we have a duty and obligation to do what is right regardless of the consequences.

The tone of “caring for Earth” is more radical than it sounds, because there is a clear message in it, that what is needed is a change in the way we live - in the values and priorities of ordinary people, before it’s too late.
Most vital component of the social equity pillar is the socio economic fairness and justice. Difference between the richest and the poorest man of the society confirms the greatest threat that can be faced by the integrity of the life on the earth and specially the family life. This is because richer people use the resources more than their naturally defined share. The trend of sustainable fashion is

The next theory we will consider goes by the name of virtue ethics (sometimes it’s referred to as human nature ethics), and it is well represented by the thought of Aristotle (384-322 BC). Robert Solomon is a contemporary thinker who tries to develop a specifically ‘Aristotelian’ approach to business ethics. Both Aristotle and Solomon present rich and somewhat complex systems of moral thought, so we will have to be a bit selective in what we consider given our time constraints.
We can start by going back to Kant and Mill, and noticing a big difference between them and Aristotle. Both Kant and Mill focus on behavior first and foremost, providing a fundamental principle that is to
