Ethics is the field of study that is concerned with questions of value, i.e.,
judgments about what human behavior is "good" or "bad" in
any given situation. Ethics are the standards, values, morals, principles,
etc., which are used to base one's decisions or actions on; often there is no
clear "right" or "wrong" answer.
For example, how would you decide which person should live or die?
