List of ethics topics

Image:Info-icon.png This article needs to be renamed/rewritten to avoid self-references.

This list of ethicstopics puts articles relevant to well-known ethical (right and wrong, good and bad) debates and decisions in one place - including practical problems long known in philosophy, and the more abstract subjects in law, politics, and some professionsand sciences. It lists also those core concepts essential to understanding ethics as applied in various religions, some movements derived from religions, and religions discussed as if they were a theory of ethics making no special claim to divinestatus.

The list also includes articles on non-ethics topics or fictional works or part of works that include a substantial ethical debate; These are fairly obviously distinguished from ethical concepts by name alone. Inclusion or exclusion of an article is obviously an ethical issue in itself, as different people regard different issues as 'substantial', and different ethical works as influential.

Some simple guidelines to keep this list manageable:

  • Where a separate article exists regarding only the ethical debate, e.g. medicine, engineeringlink only to that article, not to the main article.
  • Only very basic and influential abstractions from analytic philosophyor game theory, e.g. Prisoner's dilemma, Tit for Tatare included
  • Nothing dealing strictly with belief, e.g. propaganda- this has no direct impact on a living body and it does not imply or directly suggest an action by any body
  • Anything applicable only to one religion or only of historical interest belongs on the list of religious topics
  • Metaphysicsand epistemologyare covered in the list of philosophical topicsinstead.
  • Political and diplomatic concepts should not be included unless they constitute a profound ethical problem, e.g. choices like the prevention of genocideby violating national sovereignty.
  • Business ethicsis considered a separate topic - include only those issues large enough to affect the general societyand planet
  • Legal ethicsis a separate topic as well
  • Medical ethicsis also a separate topic - include only those issues that seem to transcend the doctor-patient relationship
  • Concepts specific to economicsshould be added to the list of economics articlesand
  • Concepts specific to Islamshould be added to the list of Islamic terms in Arabicinstead
  • names belong on the list of ethicistsor the list of philosophers

Why? Any field that makes specific ethical assumptions can be only imperfectly characterized by inclusion in a list such as this. The above concepts are more fairly presented within the frame of assumptions of that profession or religion.
