Morality and Ethics
    #4533656 - 08/14/05 01:47 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Is there a difference between morality and ethics - acting morally and acting ethically?

beyond semantics, I dunno...

I think morality has an artificial religious nature, whereas ethics is knowingly expressed as a manmade control device... dunno though...

Without cracking the dictionary (a sin), I would say that morality is external (society imposed) whereas ethics are internal or personal.

The proof is in the pudding.

ethics is a branch of philosophy; it is the theories concerning how humans should behave.

morality can be anything to do with 'right' and 'wrong' really.

hehe...in dungeons and dragons morals are the axis from good to evil, and ethics from law (order) to chaos.

Your mind is a shrieking, gibbering madhouse on wheels." - ven. henepola gunaratana

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
