Surprise, Surprise

"the governor broke no ethics rules"

Of course not, since Ethics is not a Rule-Driven Calculus.

The function of Ethics is to craft the best practice.

And as anyone born more recently than Hammurabi knows, rule-driven systems are inherently dysfunctional and inherently unethical.

Ethics are also subject to a wide variety of definitions and understandings. My moral wrong, regretted for the rest of my life, might be your idea of a groovy Tuesday night.

I'm especially attracted to the work of Lawrence Kohlberg and Carol Gilligan.

Kohlberg proposed a 6-stage 'ladder' of moral development from childhood through maturity.

Gilligan went a step further than Kohlberg with her concept of the Ethics of Care.
