    • This essay offers a systematic framework for reasoning about ethical issues. After an introduction to ethics, the essay sets out the major principles that are important to ethical reflection, and then describes a five-step procedure for analyzing and resolving ethical issues that incorporates those principles. The procedure offers a principled alternative to the appeals to gut instinct, tradition, and politics that all too often characterize how people think and talk about ethics. In closing, the essay introduces the fields of moral theory and moral philosophy, areas for further study that can also improve ethical decision-making.” (Gampel, n.d., p.1)
