Case Study: AEC Corporation, a company that employs 8,000 workers in Pleasantville, has decided to purchase and implement a new kind of computer/information technology, Technology X. The implementation of Technology X will likely have a significant impact for AEC’s employees in particular, as well as for Pleasantville in general. It is estimated that 3,000 jobs at AEC will be eliminated when the new technology is implemented during the next six months. Analyse the above case using the philosophical ethics perspective: Ethics is a separate section of philosophy that deals with moral virtue and evaluating human actions. That is defending concepts that differentiate between what is right and what is wrong conduct in a systemizing manner. Ethics basically deals with question likes “What is the finest way for societies to live?” and “What activities are correct or incorrect in particular circumstances?” Actually, ethics is all about solution of moral questions, such as, human morality, by defining theories such as evil or good, wrong or right, 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. Generally speaking, there are two traditions in modern philosophical ethics regarding how to determine the ethical character of actions. One argues (teleological) that actions have no pure ethical character but acquire their moral status from the consequences that flow from them.
