Abstract: This chapter intends to give a short methodological introduction to ethics. A broad working definition of ethics will be given, with some comments on backgrounds and implications of this definition. Attention will be asked for the distinction between the “facts”-level and the “values”- or judgment-level; on the other hand, all (scientific) facts may be value-laden, and in language descriptive and normative significances may be inseparably mixed. The chapter ends with a short description of some of the most used ethical models: consequentialist ethics, deontological ethics and rights ethics.
