What does it mean to be ethical?

Ethics is a difficult notion. Cognitively, it is difficult because it has a different logic than categorical judgments. Emotionally, it can provoke strong feelings that overwhelm the mind. Spiritually, it goes as deep and far as one wants about the meaning of it all.

In this session, we introduce and discuss a theoretical and conceptual framework that allows to answer three types of questions:

1. How do you know something is (un)ethical?

2. How do you act (un)ethically?

3. How do you communicate about ethics?
