Introducing Moral Theory

Business Ethics - PHILOS3235 - 19 January 2018

What is Moral Theory?

  • Deals with weighing out moral values

    Values:

    • Consequences
    • Principles
    • Right
    • Virtues (e.g. courage)
    • Self-interest

    We like all of these values but can we have them all? Is there a primary value?

    Should there be any limits to how much you should value these?
