Issue 10.5 Morals versus Ethics

CPD Articles - Morals vs ethics

Ethics and morals are two intertwined concepts that form the foundation of human behaviour and decision-making, yet they carry distinct nuances that contribute to their divergent roles in shaping individual and societal values. Ethics typically refers to a system of principles or guidelines that govern proper conduct within a specific context, often associated with a particular profession, institution, or cultural framework. Morals, on the other hand, delve into an individual’s personal beliefs and convictions about what is right or wrong, independent of external codes. While both ethics and morals share the overarching goal of guiding human behaviour, they differ in their origins, applicability, and the degree of universality they possess. This exploration into the realms of ethics versus morals unveils the intricate interplay between societal norms and personal convictions, highlighting the complex tapestry that shapes our moral compass and ethical frameworks.
