the order which relates to man as man and which makes of him a good man. Thus we find that although Ethics is not a guidebook of moral rules as a branch of philosophy Ethics seeks clarification of terms used in moral language. The ‘meta-ethical” problems fall within the scope of philosophical aspect of Ethics. There are
other ‘meta ethical discussions related to the nature of moral judgments, the logicalbasis of ethical evaluation etc.The applied dimension of Ethics is known as “Applied Ethics’ that falls within the broad field of Ethics. These comprise the areas of situational Ethics while Meta Ethics deals with logical and semantic questions like ‘What do we mean by “freedom” and “determinism” etc. Ethics is essentially related to all other branchesof knowledge like sociology, political science, jurisprudence, law and legal study, psychology, anthropology, culture study, ecology and environmental study, economics, religion, aesthetics and other similar areas. Ethics is concerned with political, sociological, cultural, psychical, economic, environmental, religious problems in pursuit of highest good. So these problems have an additional place in the scope of ethics. With the emergence of new technology there is scope for widening the scope of ethics to address new issues. 1. Does ethics enquire into the origin and growth of human conduct? 2. Is ethics concerned with sentiments and feelings? 3. What does ethics teach us?
