Ethics might simply be described as the study of “What is right and what is wrong”. Another way of defining ethics is “those norms and rules of conduct that distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable behaviour”. Ethics is commonly thought of as a subdivision within the broader discipline of “philosophy” (Philosophy is the study of human thoughts)
The study of ethics is commonly divided into three areas:
1. Meta Ethics
2. Normative Ethics
3. Applied Ethics
