What I expect to learn: To know where doe’s ethics come from how can affect in daily life. To be able to know what are the impact of ethics in our society.

Quote: “A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death


            Basically, Ethics is all about how we ought to live to make an action the right rather than the wrong. Ethics is way of judging of man’s natural is a way of taking socialized persons and simply imagining them living outside of the society in which they were raised. He acknowledged instead that people were neither good nor bad. Men knew neither vice nor virtue since they had almost no dealings with each other. According to this book do what is good for your self by not harming other’s and inspires other people as row model by doing goodness. In short to shoe your feeling according to your natural cause which you think is good for you it’s your right to exercise your freedom.

To conclude this, all of us have freedom to choose what we want in a legal way to judged if it is good or bad. This topic focusing the rule and function   man in our society.


What I’ve learned:

I learn this topic how important Ethics is especially in our daily life and rule and freedom to judge what right or wrong.


Integrative questions:

Where is Ethics doe’s ethics come from?

How can affect Ethics in our daily life?

What is the impact in our society?
