Overview: An essential part of studying Ethics is learning how to apply the methods of ethical reasoning to ethical issues in our world. This subfield of Ethics is known as “Applied Ethics.” Applied Ethics attempts to clarify and respond to a specific moral problem. These moral problems can include matters of personal behavior and virtue, new technologies, social values and norms, political institutions and legislation, and others (essentially, if something can be called “morally wrong,” or “morally problematic,” or “unjust,” then it can be addressed in an applied ethics paper).
