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 .
'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 .

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 .
