Why study ethics?

This is a great post on the central reason we ought to purse ethics…  It’s by a University of Nebraska political scientist that was on my dissertation committee… I strongly recommend that you read it.

  1. VERY important because it answers the question, “What we ought to do and not to do?” It is the study of right and wrong in human endeavors as it investigates the morality of human action. At a more fundamental level, it is the method by which we categorize our values and pursue them. Imagine a society wherein there is no basis for what is right and wrong? That would be a horrible society for sure.
