Duty-based, also referred to as deontological, ethics proffers that only actions performed out of (or from) duty have moral or ethical worth. Such actions are contrasted with those performed merely in accordance with duty. Essentially, one should be performing duties not based on what they want to do, but based on one’s duty or goodwill.

  4. Part three:
  5. .Aristotle’s ethical theory is a form of virtue ethics. Such theories focus on one’s character, living rightly, and being a good person. Aristotle framed his theory in terms of how to live a good life. Happiness was an important feature in his ethics, but in a very different way than a utilitarian would consider it. For Aristotle, happiness was human flourishing; it was each person being the best person he or she could be. To do this, one needs to be virtuous. This makes happiness a state of being and an activity. Many virtues (and their corresponding vices) are at play within one’s interaction with his or her friends.
