Ethical Theory

Synopsis
Three films: KANTIAN ETHICS (17 mins). Kant’s contribution to deontological ethics is explained. META-ETHICS (19 mins). Meta-ethics is interested not so much in what people do but the language they use to talk about what they do’. The film aims to help students understanding the theories of Intuitionism, Emotivism and Prescriptivism more clearly and more memorably. SITUATION ETHICS (14 mins). The full implications of the radical Christian commandment to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ are examined. Castigated by Pope Pius XII as being ‘dangerously relative,' Situation Ethics has never been formally accepted by any church, but nevertheless remains an ethical theory of considerable historical and theological significance.
