Philosophy and Practical Ethics
Author: STEPHEN SATRIS
Published in GVER, Vol. 5 No. 1
Academic philosophers have recently turned their attention to practical
areas such as law, medicine, business, etc., and, in particular to moral problems
that may arise in these areas. But there are at least two different methodologies
here. One of them seeks to find and/or justify moral principles as part of moral
philosophy itself. Then these principles are applied to problem areas in business,
medicine, etc. Hence, the common name “applied ethics.” Another
methodological approach takes the practices as themselves incorporating moral
values. The second approach has been underestimated by philosophers and
deserves closer attention. This is the approach of practical ethics.
