Beyond Authority And Ethical Theories Of Weston

Decent Essays
After reading Weston, “Getting Started,” “Beyond Authority,” and “Ethical Theories,” I have a clear understanding on what Weston means when stating ethics is a learning experience. Ethics is a learning experience that starts from the moment you are born. Your family instills in you basic morals from the moment you can comprehend rights from wrongs. Derived form roots of ethics Utilitarianism, states that an action is morally right if the majority believes so. Even evil motives can be can be considered acceptable if its for the over all-good. This what I believe Weston was talking about. As each culture in the world has secular bias on how things should operate. What is considered right and wrong, depends of what society deems is right or wrong.
