Ethics is a branch of philosophy that deals with how humans act. It deals with moral issues as to whether something is right or wrong, good or bad.[1] A person's ethics govern how they behave. They are usually learned from the people around them while they are growing up.[2] Ethics are what a person honestly believes is good, bad or somewhere in between.[3]
