What is the definition of ethical perspectives?

Answer

Ethical perspectives are specific ways of looking at the world or an issue. Morality and personal values influence ethical perspectives. Often, ethical perspectives coincide with religious belief systems.

Some examples of ethical perspectives or principles include the common good, informed consent, human decency, the Christian 10 Commandments and Buddhism. There are an infinite number of ethical perspectives because religions and society are both constantly changing, and there are few ethical perspectives that are universal. For example, romantic freedom varies greatly across the world because each culture has its own view of what romance and marriage are for.

Ethical perspectives can be sorted into different types of framework to more easily study how perspectives relate to one another. Two frameworks are duty and virtue, and within each are a few distinct perspectives that focus on that particular framework. Typically, a perspective fits into one framework, but some fit into multiple. Buddhism fits into the virtue framework, while the 10 Commandments fit into duty.

These different categories make it easy to relate to the other people who share the same perspective and provide a common ground to examine different cultures and types of ethics. Building a new perspective encourages critical thinking about morality and ethics and how the two factors relate to culture and social groups.
