  • Ioanna Kuçuradi
Part of the Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy book series (SEEP)


Ethical questions constitute one of the main bundles of questions which philosophy, since its beginning as a field of knowledge, deals with. They are questions directly related to the ethical problems we stumble onto, or ignore, in personal and public life, when we take decisions and act. One of the oldest meanings of the term θη, from which ‘ethics’ is derived, is ‘resort’ or ‘place where a living being usually takes shelter and lives’.
