Morality - set of your morals, following them, not everyone's are the same, different morals are applied to various aspects of life, your choice, passed on through culture and society, we feel it is right or just, how you feel Ethics - analyzing a situation and deciding what is the best (most ethical) thing to do, there are different areas of life for ethics to be applied, different types for group membership, writing about morality, "code" for groups, how you act, the sum of an individuals experience Both are community mediated, points to the depth of the person's experience Most shallow of the human experience is the sensory experiences The middle depth is where morality comes in; the interpretative, things you experience get grouped into categories, the things that are good vs. the things that are bad, we also create stereotypes and norms Ethics comes at the end, the evaluative - WHY? This is what we are experiencing, this is the reaction, is this something we should do? Ethics is a discussion or investigation of morality What makes one a good ethicist? Open to experiencing the world and viewing it objectively (etc.) and open to growing as an individual Critical thinking Experience Credible Ability to demonstrate self control Awareness of other cultures, not discriminatory Willing to evaluate if something or a situation is ethical Open minded - able to consider different view points Unbiased/objective/impartial Has a moral code Are certain people suitable to be an ethicist? Everyone has the ability to be an ethicist, but it's up to them to be one
