Abstract

Ethical choices in our practice are based upon the principles, values, cultures, and interests of those involved. When these domains conflict, due to their diverse nature, ethical dilemmas arise. Culture— with its beliefs, customs, and loyalties—is inseparable from ethical practice because one’s perspectives and decisions are based upon the way one lives in the world, as shaped by the society to which one belongs. However, society is not a fixed organism, but fluid and changeable. Accordingly, the context of our culture can shift, depending upon the ground on which we are stepping, and this affects the ethical decision-making process.
