IN THIS UNIT WE WILL BE THINKING ABOUT ETHICS, AND LOOKING AT ETHICS IN MANY DIFFERENT CONTEXTS.

QUESTIONS TO PONDER THROUGHOUT THE UNIT:

1.  Can universal ethical codes possibly exist?  Or are ethics just a profound representation of culture?

2.  Do one´s beliefs, political stance and socialization contribute to what one considers to be right or wrong?  Or are they seperate?

3.  What affect does technology have on ethics?  Or what affect do ethics have on technology?
