Philosophy helps us to examine our lives and Socrates’ statement about the unexamined life does seem to imply that the wise philosopher left us to draw our own conclusions about the quality of our own lives by examining ourselves. 3. This paper explores the traditional conception of ethics and ethical problems and argues to the contrary that as long as ethical problems involve value judgments and theoretical examination, there is a close relation between ethics and epistemology.�� The paper also explores a more systematic approach to the conclusion that as long as ethical problems are traceable to their epistemological foundation, it follows that ethical problems are off-shoots and variations of epistemological problems.�� Solutions to such ethical problems can only be found within the framework of epistemology.�� In this manner therefore, classifying moral epistemology, as a sub-field of meta-ethics [4] 1 is a mis-normal, as it should more properly have been classified as practical or applied epistemology, and even issues in first � order or normative ethics are not different either.

Whether the loss can ever be made good, or to what extent, is irrelevant to the issue of punishment -- except that the repentance of the criminal, and his ability to restore the loss, may stand as a mitigating factor in the sentencing.

Parallel with the above-mentioned Greek and Roman ethical systems runs a sceptical tendency, which rejects eery natural moral law, bases the whole moral order on custom or human arbitrariness, and frees the wise man from subjection to the ordinary precepts of the moral order. But if your decision has potentially significant effects, consider these different perspectives in striving for as much objectivity as you can. On what grounds, if not for mankind's sake?

For instance, metaethics ask whether morals exist naturally in the world or are man-made, and whether they can be objective. Leaving its justification for the third section of the Grounding (and the Second Critique), Kant proceeded to a discussion of the content and application of the categorical impetative.
