What are ethical theories?
What is the Ethical decision-making framework?
The Ethical decision-making framework is a useful method for exploring ethical dilemmas and identifying ethical courses of action. The framework for Ethical Decision making is composed of five steps which are: recognizing the ethical issue, getting the facts, evaluating alternative actions, making a decision and testing it, and acting and reflecting on the outcome. This method is very effective when making decisions because it allows you to break down the issue from the very beginning to the end. It also allows you to lay out/ brainstorm your options to solve the ethical issue at hand, and pick the most ethical one. In my opinion, it is the most thorough and effective method to making ethical decisions.
Which theory do you generally use in making ethical decisions and why?
When making ethical decisions, I have never purposely used a specific theory, I just picked what I thought was the most ethical out of the choices I had to choose from simply because I didn’t know or have knowledge of ethical decision-making theories.
