I think we have two kinds of ethics: normative and descriptive. Normative ethics are our standard of what is right and wrong and how we act. These ethical codes are the foundation for our social, legal, and legalistic system. Descriptive ethics are how we interpret what is real and what is not. Descriptive ethics are the ways we understand ourselves and the world around us. We will explore how these concepts can help you understand why you should or should not paint your kitchen.
The reason why I talk about normative ethics first, because normative ethics are the foundational ethical code for all of our legal and social systems. In the U.S. this includes things like the Code of Ethics, The US Code of Professional Responsibility, and the Code of Federal Regulations. The Code of Ethics is a voluntary statement by all businesses that they are acting in accordance with the ethical standards that they are applying to their business practices.
This is a common theme in all of psychology, and it’s one that can be seen in a variety of businesses. I’ll go into more detail about the Code of Ethics, but let me just give you a brief synopsis of the normativistic perspective.
The first question we might ask is, “What is ethical business behavior?” So we start with the question, “What is ethical behavior?” A normativist would say, “Ethical behavior is behavior that is in line with the highest good of the individual. We define ethics as the highest good of the individual.” So there are a few things that are considered to be ethical. These include honesty, integrity, and the like.
This is a very strong position for many people, so let me just say that if you are a business person who is making a business decision, especially if this decision involves money, I would not recommend you taking a normativist perspective. It is not the absolute right answer. It is not the best answer.
Business people can take a normativist perspective because it is based on the fact that it is impossible to know all the facts. It is impossible to know who will win the game of poker. Most of the time, the players have nothing to say as to who will win. They are just players in a game.
Normativity is the belief that a certain set of values should apply to everyone no matter what their position in life. This is a good thing. It is a good way to avoid being misunderstood by those who make business decisions. Normativism is the belief that you should apply this set of values to everyone regardless of what their position in life is, and also to all people regardless of whether they are doing business or not. This is a bad thing.
I think that it is a good thing for businesses that they are doing business in the right way. They should not be allowed to use their positions to influence others to act against their own best interests. If they could take an example, say a CEO of a bank who would have a lot of money and influence, and he was giving loans to people who were not his friends or family, it is a bad thing. In fact, the exact opposite would be a good thing.
So if someone gives loans to people who are not friends or family, it is a bad thing. I think it is a good thing that banks let people who are not their own friends and family borrow money.
In business, it is not the role of a CEO to be concerned about making loans to people who are not their friends and family. You should only be concerned if they are people who are not your friends and family, and if that is not the case then you should be concerned. It is the role of a CEO, as the head of a corporation, to make loans to people who are not your friends and family that are.
