Ethical Decision Making
Ethical Decision Making Resources provide an introduction to basic ideas in applied ethics, such as utilitarianism, rights, justice, virtue, and the common good.
We also look at foundational questions, such as What is Ethics? and Can Ethics Be Taught? Our Framework for Ethical Decision Making has been reprinted in hundreds of articles, books, and course materials. It is now available as an app for both iOS and Android systems.
