So, how would you describe a maximally ethical person?


Maybe I have it all wrong but if you really have an interest in how a maximally ethical person behaves, follow someone who has a very strong interest in the study and advancement of ethics. Dr. Marvin C. Katz has studied and written more free books on the subject than anyone I know. PS he is a vegetarian if that really means much as far as ethics go.

Perhaps. But there is still no guarantee that this person will appear ethical in the eyes of everybody.

No, there isn't. So what?

@djjd62,
I think that it may have more to do with perception than conception.

There is a video link below of Mr Katz at the link below if anyone is interested.

@Setanta,
I see you continuously referring to the phrasing "an end justifying a means." Now I will agree with your supportive example, just thought I would ask if you have heard of the utilitarianism school of psychology. If you have not it is basically a theory that "The end justifies the means." Thought I would share that in case you would rather look up some info on utilitarianism for more data.

@sozobe,
Everything in life you may find is relative other than the laws of physics.

@reasoning logic,
I would think that a "maximally ethical person" might be one who does not need rules to obey; s/he simply wants (needs) to do do right by others. S/he is compassionate

@sozobe,
More seriously now a maximally ethical person certainly is not aware or even much concerned with its maximality in the first place...because if it is, then is just playing a good scout with a calculator in its pocket...a sort of investment in good sleep rather then insomnia...smart but not particularly appealing...
...as I see it maximally ethical persons just really try to play fair...the first step of it would actually be about avoiding enter a contest of ethical behaviour by tramping others conceptions on ethical behaviour...while one may disagree on what is ethically correct or ethically prior, debating who is being the most on anything just sounds silly...ethics should not be regarded as fashion. But then I guess what you really meant and were interested in was in knowing which principles we value the most...
