What are ethics? They’re principles, rules
Of good conduct. We use them as tools
That help culture stay strong,
Choosing right over wrong,
So we act more like angels than fools. — SheilaB, Ethic, OEDILF

Encyclopedia

Ethics investigates the questions “What is the best way for people to live?” and “What actions are right or wrong in particular circumstances?” In practice, ethics seeks to resolve questions of human morality, by defining concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice and crime. As a field of intellectual enquiry, moral philosophy also is related to the fields of moral psychology, descriptive ethics, and value theory. — Wikipedia
