This is a textbook on Ethics. This book will not tell you what is right and wrong; it will help you in determining it for yourself. More specifically, it will present you with conceptual and analytic tools that will hopefully guide you in your ethical thinking.

The Commission on Higher Education had mandated that Ethics be a general education course required for all college students. As stated in Memorandum Order No. 20, series of 2013, “The fundamental purpose of higher education…is not only to develop knowledgeable and competent graduates in a particular field, but also well-rounded individuals who appreciate knowledge in a general sense, are open-minded because of it, secure in their identities as individuals and as Filipinos, and cognizant of their role in the life of the nation and the larger community.” Ethics, then, is one of the courses that will ideally contribute to the development of your intellectual competencies and civic capacities, and to the development of your ability to comprehend the complexities of the social and natural realities around us, as well as your ability to think through the ethical and social implications of a given course of actions. This textbook strives to be faithful to the pursuit of this ideal.

In addition to being faithful with the rationale for the Ethics course, this textbook is also consistent with the structure of the course as specified in the Memorandum Order. The course is envisioned as being comprised of three parts.

First, the course description states, “The first part lays the groundwork—the meaning of ethics—and leads the students through the analysis of human experience, linking it to elements of the ethical dimension.” The first chapter of this textbook serves as our initial discussion into the subject matter. Here, we recognize ethics as a significant dimension of human existence, and start to explore how we may engage in careful ethical thinking.

Second, the course description states, “The second part of the course takes students through the various classical ethical frameworks—utilitarianism, deontological ethics, virtue ethics, and natural [law] ethics…. These frameworks also embed sets of values that students will be asked to examine.” In Chapters II to V, we go in-depth through each one of these frameworks. This is in order to arrive at an understanding of the different ways that these theories provide us an avenue of determining ethical valuation.

Finally, the course description states, “The last part guides students through the analysis and evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the various ethical frameworks and their value to human life and society.” The final chapter of this textbook involves an extensive engagement of these classical ethical theories with the real-life issues that confront us, calling for moral deliberation. The end goal is for us to be able to make informed decisions and judgments on significant concerns after careful thought.
