True or false: The relationship between law and ethics dictates that anything lawful is ethical and anything ethical is legal. What is the rationale behind your answer? How do different approaches to ethics affect interpersonal relationships?
What is YOUR answer?
i think that it is false because everyone has a different view of ethics and everyone has a different view of laws and every one may not feel that what is ethical is lawful..... is that right?
I agree with you. We all have different ethical views -- abortion is a good example.
Laws are more exact and aren't open to a lot of interpretation. Of course, courts do differ on the interpretation of laws, but most laws are clear-cut.
Another example is that cohabiting unrelated adults is illegal in many states, but this law is overlooked. This may be ethical for many people.
ok thank you and sorry about posting those three all at once my mouse got stuck :/ sorry
You're very welcome.
