Hello Banoth In all these lessons, I haven't even used any of my personal knowledge or a self-created theory. All this is just a structured compilation of material from diverse books and resources available on this subject, substantiated using real life examples. Nevertheless, I would love to hear on exact lacunae that you wish to point out.

I mean I am not able to compare with my ethics ( elective )professor at IIT Gandhinagar..you know the way he teaches is way different and solid (He is highly practical person which in way made me as well)..he maintains very high energy levels all the time because he shows/has lot of interest for the subject...I didn't mean anything wrong about you ma'am, I am sorry and I may be wrong...you are doing a great job for our country..thank you. I wish educators be more analytical because who cant understand a book after reading it, right? A true aspirant comes here JUST for analytical part but I see almost no one cares about it except very few...I am sorry if I am wrong..thank you Yasmin.

Hello Shailendra these are just different ideas that are referred to as schools here...For e.g. Evolutionary school will give you an idea of Ethics by relating it with evolution and so on.

  4. Ethics, Morals, Values and Beliefs "Ethics' derived from Greek word 'ethos' which means habit It tells- What is right and Why it is right i.e. rational justification . STUDY of human sense of RIGHT and WRONG (Theories) It answers how do we make sense of right and wrong (Sources) . It tells ways to do good and avoid wrong (Emotionally intelligent, control passions, etc.) It is a NORMATIVE and REGULATIVE study It is practical application while philosophy is theoretical Source of ethics is EXTERNALi.e. society .


  5. 'Morals' derived from Latin word moralitas, which means character/behaviour . They are more INDIVIDUAL in nature For e.g. While social ethics were in favour of sati, RRMR's morals were not . Values - Signifies something that is VALUED by a person They are STANDARDS which help us to make decisions For e.g. I value honesty, punctuality Sources-Family, society & educational institutions


  6. Beliefs- Something which we inherently believe in, though it might be right or wrong rationally . Can be changed For e.g. holiness in water of religious places, belief in re- birth and karma HARMA Therefore we say 'Religious beliefs'


  7. How do all these evolve? FUNCTIONAL SCHOOL-They are functional/ of some use to our society. They define the ideals & aspirations of society. They ensure a stable and connected society CONFLICT SCHOOL- Think that society consists of groups with conflicting values and RULING CLASSES, in order to sustain itself, will try bringing a value-system that will ensure its sustenance. For e.g. Idea of race superiority helped British perpetuate its rule- black areas and white areas HISTORICAL SCHOOL- They were always present in society- In our religion, in our culture, etc. For e.g. Truth always triumphs-Satyameva Jayate


  8. EVOLUTIONARY SCHOOL- SOCIAL DARWINISM- Biological evolution used to explairn ethics Some say that in the race to "survival of fittest", human beings became self-centered & aggressive Others say that in course of evolution, we acquired good qualities in order to live in a society-be it family or society at large- social animals .
