My .   Interested persons could see the first chapter of Dr. Long’s book, “The Teleological Grammar of the Moral Act,” which explores some of this in depth.

It has the following branches: meta-ethics, normative ethics, applied ethics, moral psychology, and descriptive ethics. These branches have several different schools /5(6).

    Morality deals with moral knowledge (the actual content of right and wrong), and ethics deals with moral reasoning (the process of determining right and wrong). True or False: Ethics involves precision like the sciences, but like art, it is an inexact and sometimes intuitive discipline.
