In this case, it means that it is permissible to commit x to anyone if that contributes to the common goal of reducing x. On the other hand, an agent-relative value is deontological in its form: if x is bad or wrong then what is implied is that the agent himself is not permitted to commit x to anyone, although it doesn’t govern whether x occurs to someone because of what other people do....   [tags: Ethics ]

Ethical behaviour is behaviour that is morally accepted as good and right, as opposed to bad and wrong (Wood, Zeffane, Fromholtz & Fitzgerald, 2006). An ethical dilemma requires a person to make a choice between competing sets of principles based on how morally good and right as opposed to how bad and wrong they are (Wood et al., 2006). While striving to always do right, – with this paradigm – sound ethical conduct will likely become second nature in today’s world (Zazaian, 2006)....   [tags: Business Ethics] 1817 words
