  1. 1. Ethics is normative study of conduct as it is based on ideals/norms on which human conduct is evaluated. Moreover, ethics is prescriptive in nature rather than descriptive (positive study).
  2.  Values may be classified as:
     Instrumental: Dependent on the consequences or the outcomes.
     Intrinsic: Independent of outcome, good in itself.                                                     They may also be divided into personal and collective values, absolute and relative values etc.
  3. The virtue of Rationality means the recognition and acceptance of reason as one’s only source of knowledge and guide to action. Morality is the application of reason to discover the proper guide to our human conduct. This arises from the fact that there are competing goods available to man in decision making i.e. many choices are available. And choices are hinged on powers of reason that man has and help us in arriving at choice worthy conduct of behaviour. The good for man has to be rationalized unlike animals.
  4. All attitudes which have their base in moral conviction are called moral attitude. It is a reflection of perceiver’s fundamental beliefs about right and wrong. Moral attitude may be relative i.e depend on society, culture, family, religion and time.egs General Dyer who’s responsible for the Jalianwalla massacre was considered as a brutal immoral officer by Indians but at the same time he was given a heroic welcome in Britain. However, certain moral attitude is universal that includes values like integrity, truthfulness, purity etc.
