Abstract

For centuries philosophers have attempted to answer the fundamental questions about our existence and challenge values for which no argument has been offered. Philosophy has been defined as ‘the use of reason and argument in seeking truth and knowledge of reality’. Ethics, deriving from the Greek word ethikos, is a branch of philosophy which examines the character and conduct of people. Morals are the Latin equivalent of ethics and tend to be used in the same context. Therefore morals relate to standards of behaviour and ethics is the study of those morals.
Ian Trueman remains impartial as he explains how two opposing viewpoints can be justified
