4 ethical perspectives -

  • Virtue ethics - ethical quantity of an action defined by the intentions of the actor
  • Consequentialism - ethical quality of an action should be determined by evaluating its consequences
  • Deontology - ethical course of an action determined by examining the act itself, not the intentions of the actor or the consequences
  • Postmodern ethics - consider the relationship between the actions of others and one’s own choice or actions




Virtue ethics

Easier to forgive unintended harm, shared guidance

Doesn’t judge action by consequences, people define “virtue” differently, no clear way to resolve determinants


Makes it clear that good intentions are not enough, enables criticism of negligent actions, allows cost / benefit analysis as guide

Difficult to determine most desirable consequences, utilitarian perspective can be abused to justify unfair minority treatment, cost / benefit analysis may over simplify


Ethical consistency, makes shared cultural and societal norms possible

Applies same rules to common situations regardless of different contexts, assumes universally good rules

Postmodern ethics

Makes clear that speech and actions are alway connected, encourages speakers to adapt to their audiences

No easy answers or explanation, impossible to live by all the time
