Although this person would have to make a decision without being aware of his identity, this would apply to all. However, it seems that Rawls neglects the present pragmatic state of affairs. The concepts of fairness and equality in Rawls’ methodology would definitely be hard to refute, when being applied in an existent and factual original position. In this case we would have the scenario of never having inhabited a society before and we would be able to from something out of a clean slate, in which no one could possibly be disadvantaged. Rawls’ hypothetical scenario, however, is not factual, nor does it pose meaningful applicability to our present situation.
Abstract Criminal justice professionals, whether they work in law enforcement, the courts, or corrections, encounter a multitude of situations in which they must make choices that affect people’s lives. The law, or accepted standards of behavior, imposes ethical rules and responsibilities on these professionals. This re-search paper shows reasons as to why ethics are crucial in the criminal justice system. Keywords: ethics, criminal justice Ethics in the Criminal Justice System Why is ethics so important for the Criminal Justice System? Because ethics, also known as moral philosophy, is a branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct; which allows us to established a line between good and evil.
Generally, ethics is defined as the rule for carrying out certain behaviors by distinguishing between acceptable and unacceptable behavior (Resnik, 2015). In other words, ethics assists in determining whether a decision is right or wrong when given a choice. As a matter of course, decision-making is first predisposed by personal ethic that is constructed on personal experience and conscience (Fritzsche & Oz, 2007) . It tends to be affected by family and friends (Ferrell & Gresham, 1985). Not only does personal ethics guide human behavior but also social ethics (Shaw, 2002).
Many a time the management is faced with a dilemma when making decisions. In principle, decisions must be ethical to prevent negative setbacks to organizations and managers. Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University through Velasquez et al (2009), highlights the process of ethical decision-making; i) Recognition of ethical issues during choice making between alternatives. ii) Getting the facts about the case iii) Evaluation of alternative actions so that the choice will produce the best benefits and least harm, the choice will respect the rights of stakeholders and the option must treat the involved parties proportionately or equally. This is a utilitarian-rights-justice approach.
Theoretical ethics asks questions about ethical values origins, justification and evaluation and is generally divided into meta-ethics, applied ethics, and normative ethics, whereas practical ethics focuses on their application to specific issues. Meta-ethics is “the study of the origin and meaning of ethical concepts”.5 It investigates where humans derive their ethical principles from, and what they mean to them. What is moral or ethical goodness? Is one such question it seeks to answer, it focuses on “universal truths, the will of God, and the role of reason in ethical judgments”.6 It also explores as well as connect between values, reasons for action, and human motivation, by asking how it is that moral standards provide us with reasons to do or not to do as it demands. Here moral relativism and moral absolutism are brought in.
Description of values and ethics are not only broadened but also colloquial due to its overlapping meanings such as principles, moral, fundamental values, and principles. According to Taylor (2010), ethics are underlying convictions, life stances or ideals that act as a general guide to behavior, and or a reference point in evaluating beliefs or actions. This is an ethical inventory paper that seeks to discuss the significance of understanding one’s perspective of ethics, the connection between professional and personal ethics in psychology, APA decision making process and how it facilitates ethical professional behavior, analysis of an EAI scores and how they relate to aspirations of enforceable standards. Psychology requires adherent by professionals
Do you know what an ethical and unethical behavior is? Ethical means everything that is related to the moral behavior of the human being and his posture in the social environment. Ethical is the adjective and ethics is the noun. Ethics studies the moral principles that guide humans’ conduct. Ethics has a lot to do with the individual’s choice, that choice can affect others in a good or bad way; we can also say that ethics is like a superior who will evaluate the choice made by the person.

Public good is something that can be consumed by everybody in a society or by nobody at all, according to the "Economist." Public goods cannot or will
Al wrote about a theory called dual-process-theory. This review will synthesis more recent papers and studies that attempt to explain the duality of the roles that both emotion and utilitarian cognition play in moral decision making. What is moral decision making? A moral decision is a choice that is made by a person based on his or her ethics, values, emotions, and their subjective beliefs about what is right and wrong. Decisions of this nature tend to have both an effect on the person making the decision, but also people surrounding the given situation or dilemma.
Universality without Uniformity can be explained with moral pluralism. It states that there is no single and complete rational ordering of rationally relevant goods. Schweder states that at some point, human reason reaches a limit that allows for discretion as to which values or goods to favour. Moral pluralists believe that there is no distinct ordering of moral codes and goods. Because there are many questions directed towards moral codes and their relevance in society this leads members, of different cultures, to disagree on what is important and what is pointless.
