Ethics, Morals, Culture and understanding research methods

1. If a person follows all laws, does that make them a moral person? Have you ever done something you knew to be wrong? Why did you do it?

2. If you had to choose one ethical system, which one most closely conforms to your own beliefs? Explain your answer. Can you think of any situations in which lying is ethically acceptable?

3. Do you believe that it is easier for members of society to reach a consensus on certain behaviors and not others? Please explain. Do you think culture plays a role in determining the perceived normalcy of the behavior?

4. Do you think that it is important to understand the research methods criminologists’ use? Why or Why not? What is the difference between using scientific knowledge versus personal experience to understand crime patterns?
