Introduction to Philosophy Axiology -the study of Value - Value not meaning the price of something, but rather how you view certain things or what they mean to you. When discussing axiology in philosophy, there are two terms that are crucial to understand. They are: Ethics Aesthetics 1) Ethics- the moral values that one holds based on their beliefs. 2) Aesthetics- Aesthetics equate to beauty and ugliness. These two terms are important because they determine how you look at certain subjects and situations. They determine why and how you feel the way you do on different views. For example, you might not like the idea of someone who walks everywhere barefoot. Now, the thing you have to think about now is why you feel the way you do about it. Is it wrong to you because it’s morally wrong (ethic)? Or is it just gross to you? (aesthetic)? Self-Critical: To be aware of who you are, and why you do certain things. Doesn’t necessarily mean to criticize yourself, but just to dig deep and figure out who you are.
