Many people use morals and ethics interchangeably. The concept of law is quite another topic. In order to properly understand ethical concepts, it is important to understand the concepts of morality and the law. The definition of morals will reference ethics in a circular definition, same goes for ethics. Ethics represents innate knowledge of right/wrong distinctions. Ethics transcends culture, religion, and time.


Morality is defined as having and living per a moral code, or principles of right and wrong. Basic morality condemns murder, adultery, lying and stealing. Ethics explores the idea of morality and its place in society and addresses questions about morality. The law is based on principles and regulations established in a community by some authority and applicable to its people. This course will evaluate these concepts and put them in a business text.
