Morals & Ethics[edit]

  1. 1. I search Morals, I get Ethics; I search Ethics, I get Morals. = epic fail.
  2. 2. I thought it was more or less univerally agreed, that one does not define a word by using that word in the definition/s. = epic fail.

Circularity is not the same thing as using the word in its own definition. DCDuring TALK 18:02, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Other meaning?[edit]

Isn't there a different meaning of moral? I speak of the more general notion I have encountered in works such as Hume's, where moral philosophy refers to any enquiry about the human mind and nature (such as questions of psychology), not just the narrower ideas of 'good' and 'bad' and how to conduct oneself.

I don't think so and cannot find support in other dictionaries for such a sense (See moral at OneLook Dictionary Search). However, I can't readily check the OED, so you might find an appropriate definition there. DCDuring TALK 18:02, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
