Meta-ethics
                             Meta-ethics is the branch of
                             ethics that seeks to understand
                             the     nature     of     ethical
                             properties,          statements,
                             attitudes, and judgments.

                            According to Richard Garner and
                            Bernard Rosen,


1. What is the meaning of moral terms or judgments?
2. What is the nature of moral judgments?
3. How may moral judgments be supported or defended?
Normative ethics investigates the set of questions that arise when
considering how one ought to act, morally speaking.

Normative ethics can be divided into the sub-disciplines of moral
theory and applied ethics.
              Three competing views:
                      1. Virtue ethics
                      2. Deontology
                      3. Teleology
Applied ethics is the philosophical examination, from a moral
standpoint, of particular issues in private and public life that are
matters of moral judgment.
