Tools of the Trade: Sorting Right From Wrong: February 2011

Laws and regulations regarding ethical responsibilities cannot legislate morality, eradicate corruption, or eliminate bad judgment. Laws have their place, but ethics cannot be legislated. We all try to be ethical people. If we are public servants, we have an enormous responsibility to operate with high ethical standards. It starts with obeying ethics laws and rules. These laws do not make a lawmaker ethical, however. Ethics are much more than that.

The ideas of right and wrong conduct are, as we have seen, those with which ethics is generally supposed to be most concerned. This view, which is unduly narrow, is fostered by the use of the one word good , both for the sort of conduct which is right , and for the sort of things which ought to exist on account of their intrinsic value. This double use of the word good is very confusing, and tends greatly to obscure the distinction of ends and means. I shall therefore speak of right actions, not of good actions, confining the word good to the sense explained in Section II. The word right is very ambiguous, and it is by no means easy to distinguish the various meanings which it has in common parlance.

Morality isn't a subjective notion, and we can recognize actions that are demonstrably monstrous and evil. Take a Hitler or a Pol Pot, as an example, and consider whether you could honestly argue they're morally no different than a Mother Teresa. Moral relativism itself is a subjectivist philosophy that seeks to turn everything upside down. It is however hard to determine what is really right or wrong in a particular situation as people differ in their opinions. Still, they are entitled to their opinions whether they think they are right or wrong.

Some years ago, a student asked to see me during office hours to talk about a personal problem that, she assured me, related to our recent ethics class. It seemed she was having difficulties with a new friend from the Dominican Republic. She explained that in normal circumstances she would have ended the relationship, but she was reluctant to do so now because of affirmative action. In fact, they reflect the complex relationship between communal and personal ethics, between moral theory and our everyday ethical decisions. This is the realm of everyday ethics. Now would certainly seem to be the time to care more about everyday ethics. We regularly complain about the moral decay of our age, and we have good reason to do so.

Still, they are entitled to their opinions whether they think they are right or wrong.

Yet that essential knowledge, generally assumed to come from parental teaching or religious or legal instruction, could turn out to have a quite different origin. Primatologists like Frans de Waal have long argued that the roots of human morality are evident in social animals like apes and monkeys. Marc D. Hauser, a Harvard biologist, has built on this idea to propose that people are born with a moral grammar wired into their neural circuits by evolution. People are generally unaware of this process because the mind is adept at coming up with plausible rationalizations for why it arrived at a decision generated subconsciously.

  1. There is nothing right and there is nothing wrong, there is nothing good and there is nothing evil. Morality is a human invention and is.
