Repent and you are Saved, according to the promise of Christ. I will refrain from uttering words that can cause division or discord, or that can cause the family or the community to break. Or in other words, Virtue ethics focuses on the inherent character of a person rather than on the nature or consequences of specific actions performed. The main three questions posed by philosophy are 1)What is reality? 2)How do we know what we know? 3) Given what we know, what should we do?

What’s right in one situation may not be right in another. The simple answer to the God problem as it relates to ethics is two fold. The occurrence of such things, based on Schopenhauer's own principle of deterrence, is enough to show that such a principle itself leads easily to "wickedness and cruelty." Ethics is a very broad area. You will see very many different definitions and interpretations of the concept, and you should feel free to develop your own ideas about ethics in terms of meaning, composition, methods and implications.

Another finds himself forced by necessity to borrow money. And it exists in a knowable, universal way. Exercise may be hard work and sometimes painful, and dieting will mean missing out on pleasurable experiences, but the health benefits will make the effort worth it.

What is best for all together is not necessarily the same as what is best for the most (or majority) of them. Following Augustine, he insists that our actions are for the sake of a final good—a last end which we desire for its own sake and for the sake of which everything else is chosen (ST Ia 1.6 sed contra ).
