The Advisor’s Corner – Can Ethics Be Learned?
AUGUST 27, 2014
Question : Can you teach ethics, or are we ‘hard wired’ and born with or without ethics? YES you can teach the principles and importance of ethics. YES , you can model the ethics you expect within your culture. And… NO , you cannot be sure someone will behave and act in ethical ways just because you’ve taught or modeled ethics for them. Therefore, what’s ethical in China is not ethical in Rome and vice versa.
