In the course of the Bible many terms are used to condemn this sinful practice. In the teaching of the prophets certain concrete realities are listed as sins, for example, violence, robbery, injustice, exploitation, fraud, false accusations, etc. (cf. Amos 2.6–8; Hos 4.2; Micah 2.1–2; Jer 6.13: Ezek 18.6–8). In the Pauline literature specific sins are singled out: cheating, greed, jealousy, quarrels, drunkenness, immorality, envy, etc. (cf. Rom 1.29-31; 1 Cor 5.10; 2 Cor 12.20; Gal 5. 19–21). Sin is viewed essentially as a violation of personal relationships that place the person against God, but it is also seen as the violation of the dignity and the rights of other persons. The centre theme however, is the struggle against infidelity to the LORD God of Israel and against the false concepts of God expressed in idolatry by the service of other gods. This conflict appears in the Law, it is central for the activity of the prophets and is present also in postexilic times. Jesus’

In most countries workers have an undeniable legal right to be protected from workplace hazards, and the focus of occupational health programmes should be precisely to address this right. Ethical issues associated with the protection of workers from unsafe conditions are generally those related to the fact that often the employer’s financial interests, or at least perceived financial interests, militate against undertaking the activities needed to protect workers’ health. The ethical stance that the occupational health professional must adopt, however, is clear-cut. As noted in the International Code of Ethics for Occupational Health Professionals (reprinted in this chapter): “Occupational health professionals must always act, as a matter of priority, in the interests of the health and safety of the workers.”

The game of “as if” allows us to act in the face of ever-present moral and scientific uncertainty. But axioms must not be confused with ultimate “truth” (Woodger 1937). They are kept and used if fruitful in the application of basic ethical principles. When they are found to be no longer useful, they can be discarded and replaced with another set of conventions.

Moral Relativism (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

The nature of moral axioms is illuminated by Bertrand Russell’s observation that “all rational conduct of life is based upon the method of the frivolous historical game in which we discuss what the world would be like if Cleopatra’s nose had been half an inch longer” (Russell 1903).

Moral relativism is an important topic in metaethics

Moral axioms bring the framework of judgement to the level of practice, to the “shop floor”. An example is the common practice of developing professional codes of ethics for corporate physicians and other professionals. They are drafted to protect generic rights and their specifications by bridging gaps in knowledge, to organize experience and to permit us to act in advance of morally or scientifically certain knowledge.

Managing for Organizational Integrity - Ideas and …

There have already been a number of valuable contributions to thegrowing field of robotic ethics (roboethics). For example, in Wallachand Allen's book Moral Machines: Teaching Robots Right fromWrong (2010), the authors present ideas for the design andprogramming of machines that can functionally reason on moralquestions as well as examples from the field of robotics whereengineers are trying to create machines that can behave in a morallydefensible way. The introduction of semi and fully autonomous machinesinto public life will not be simple. Towards this end, Wallach (2011)has also contributed to the discussion on the role of philosophy inhelping to design public policy on the use and regulation ofrobotics.

The limits of Individual morality - WikiLeaks

Military robotics has proven to be one of the most ethicallycharged robotics applications. Today these machines are largelyremotely operated (telerobots) or semi-autonomous, but over time thesemachines are likely to become more and more autonomous due to thenecessities of modern warfare (Singer 2009). In the first decade of warin the 21st century robotic weaponry has been involved innumerous killings of both soldiers and noncombatants, and this factalone is of deep moral concern. Gerhard Dabringer has conductednumerous interviews with ethicists and technologists regarding theimplications of automated warfare (Dabringer 2010). Manyethicists are cautious in their acceptance of automated warfare withthe provision that the technology is used to enhance just warfarepractices (see Lin et al. 2008; Sullins 2009b) but others have beenhighly skeptical of the prospects of a just autonomous war due toissues like the risk to civilians (Asaro 2008; Sharkey 2011).
