|Other Titles:||On Public Ethic|
Department od Education, NTNU
In this paper, the author intends to clarify the concept of“public ethics”, a concept which has become popular and is drawing nation─wide concern nowadays. In comparison with private ethics, which frames the traditional relationship among an individual and the people with whom he associates privately, the author assumes that public ethics is particular in the sense that it is related to an individual and the anonymous general public. While private ethics focus on the principle of reciprocity, public ethics is rather characterized by the absolute obligation of one sideness. The author assumes that public ethics is composed of the following traits：1. loyalty to one's nation, 2. respect of public properity, 3. concern for surrounding and natural conservation, 4. pursuit of honesty and fairness, 5. emphasis on professional ethic codes. In discussing the educator's role in strengthening the momentum of the public ethics movement, it is suggested that public ethics should be interested in courses of“Civics and Morality” at different levels of schools. More empirical research and experimental teaching should also be conducted. Finally, for the purpose of drawing more public attention and awareness, some kind of social movement like“New Life Movement” must be launched.
