Theories of Ethics

Ethical systems have made significant influences to the growth of an everyday and acceptable ethical code; no one can stand alone as the philosophical basis of a rightly practical system. Most ethical systems have in common numerous characteristics that constitute an ethical person.

  1. Wisdom – This consists of intelligence grounded in experience. Of wisdom, Socrates once said:” The Dolphic oracle said I was the wisest of the Greeks. It is because I alone, of all the Greeks, know that I know nothing.” Wisdom is to the mind, as health is to the body.
  2. Courage – Aptly described, courage refers to the determination to stand behind one’s decisions, or to admit a wrong decision. Moral courage is said to be a virtue of higher cast and nobler origin than physical.
  3. Temperance – It is the ability to see the extreme position of an issue and to steer a middle course. Temperance keeps the senses clear and unembarrassed
  4. Justice – In the Justinian code, there appears the following quotations: ”Justice is the constant desire to render every man his due.” Thus, justice is respect for the rights of others. It represents fairness and the recognition of the obligations.
  5. Conscience – Conscience should be the man’s faithful friend and ally. It represents the capacity for recognizing situations that call for ethical decision-making.
