Finns det moraliska skyldigheter?

Hej, idag har jag börjat läsa en mycket intressant bok nämligen Cyberethics – Morality and Law in Cyberspace.

I boken som skrivits av Richard A Spinello så lyfts det fram att filosofen William D Ross skrivit mycket om moral. Ross ställer frågan om det finns moraliska skyldigheter, och kommer fram till att så är fallet. Han ställer sedan upp dessa moraliska skyldigheter punktform och de är sju till antalet.

1. One ought to keep promises and tell the truth (fidelity)

2. One ought to right the wrongs that one has inflicted on others (reparation)

3. One ought to distribute goods justly (Justice)

4. One ought to improve the lot of others with respect to virtue, intelligence, and happiness (beneficence)

5. One ought to improve oneself with respect to virtue and intelligence (self-improvement)

6. One ought to exhibit gratitude when appropriate (gratitude)

7. One ought to avoid injury to others (noninjury)

(Spinello.2014:17-18)
