There are several misconceptions of ethics. One widespread misconception begins with the thought (or the hope – perhaps it’s a wish, in Freud’s sense) that ethics is like geometry: Figuring out what one ought to do is something one can do in a mechanical fashion, that is, one can derive the answer to an ethical question by applying a few basic principles (axioms) and very simple rules of deduction. As in geometry, given the axioms and correct application of the rules of derivation, the answer one derives is most assuredly, indeed certainly, correct.

The best evidence that these misconceptions are difficult to resist is how widespread they are. And the sense in which they are dangerous, or at least deeply problematic, emerges when, for example, we try to teach ethics across the curriculum or reveal the ethical dimensions of an institution’s concern with academic integrity. It’s also apparent in op-eds about life science technologies, stem cell research, and political debates and proposals about, for example, torture as an ‘enhanced’ technique of interrogation.
