Many employers include ethical questions as part of their interview process and it can be tricky to determine how to best answer these types of questions. Medical school interviews are also known for their ethical questions to determine the interviewee’s ethical decision making. It can be helpful to first review different ethical interview questions so you have a good sense of what these questions are like, and then practice responding to them so you are better prepared in your interview.

The science of morals, c. 6655, plural of Middle English ethik study of morals (see ethic ). The word also traces to Ta Ethika, title of Aristotle's work. Late 69c. ), from Late Latin ethica, from Greek ethike philosophia moral philosophy, fem. Of ethikos ethical, from ethos moral character, related to ethos custom (see ethos ).
Ethics eth·ics (ěth'ĭks)
The rules or standards governing the conduct of a person or the conduct of the members of a profession. The branch of that deals with morality. Ethics is concerned with distinguishing between good and evil in the world, between right and wrong human actions, and between virtuous and nonvirtuous characteristics of people. Ethical Naturalism (or Naturalistic Ethics ) is the meta-ethical doctrine that there are objective moral properties of which we have empirical knowledge, but that these properties are reducible to entirely non-ethical or natural properties, such as needs, wants or pleasures (as opposed to relating the ethical terms in some way to the will of God, for example). Ethical Naturalism is a type of Moral Realism and assumes Cognitivism (the view that ethical sentences express propositions and can therefore be true or false ).
But it goes one step further than Ethical Non-Naturalism, and holds that the meanings of these ethical sentences can be expressed as natural properties without the use of ethical terms (e. G. Good, right, etc). It suggests that inquiry into the natural world can increase our moral knowledge in just the same way it increases our scientific knowledge, and that any ethical value is confirmable through the methods of science. Moral facts are therefore effectively facts of nature. Critics complain that a good definition of natural property is problematic, but it would normally refer to a property which can be discovered by sense observation or experience, experiment, or through any of the available means of science, and this just does not apply in the case of ethical statements.
The British philosopher G. E. Moore has posed the Open Question Argument in oposition to Ethical Naturalism, in which he states that the question What is good? Is an open one, as it cannot be answered using natural terms (such as blue, rough, smooth, etc), and yet neither can it be said to have supernatural properties. He termed this a naturalistic fallacy, because the term good, in the sense of intrinsic value, is effectively indefinable. Moore propounded instead a doctrine of Ethical Non-Naturalism.
