ethics

posted by .

This is the question i was asked, "The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice."

Define the relationship between law, ethical codes, and professional practice. That is, what was Gandhi talking about?

This is how i answered:Those who are familiar with Gandhi understand that his thoughts rested on honesty, harmonious relations, love of all, and service to others. His quote "The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice" Was merely speaking of the necessity to be selfless, and to think of the other. In terms of law and ethical codes, there must be some sort of natural law to follow. Seeking truth through the service to others, nonviolent social action, autonomy and self development, and material simplicity define the relationship amid law, ethical codes, and professional practice; Gandhi is stating amid the laws, ethical codes, and professional practice is that the selfish nature will be the crumbling force.

Am I close, or can you guide me somewhere that will help me better understand.
