Ray, Terry T.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n66 p47-53 Sum 1996
Four terms central to the dialog about ethics are defined and differentiated: ethics; morality; justice; and law. Several problems in understanding the terms are identified, including differences between the classical and current meanings, common but inappropriate usages, confusion of one term for another, and merging of terms in common usage.
