Aldo Leopold Joseph Fletcher Peter Singer Larabee Van Hooft 470-399BC 427-347 BC 384-322BC Socrates (Born 469 BC - Died 399 BC) Socrates was the son of a stonemason, who lived in Athens his whole life and found support from the family business, rather than working for himself. Socrates was a moral philosopher concerned with the conduct of virtuous life. He focused more on how things should be, as opposed to how things are. Socrates did not document his thoughts, but his philosophy comes to

us through his disciple, Plato. Plato (Born 427 BC - Died 347 BC) Plato was a philosopher in Greece. He was also a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues and founder of the Academy of Athens. Plato maintains a virtue-based conception of ethics. That is to say, human well-being is the highest aim of moral thought and conduct, and the virtues are the necessary skills and dispositions needed to attain it. Quotes: Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something Aristotle

Born in Greece 384 BC and died 322 BC Aristotle was an Ancient Greek philosopher. When he was 17 he was sent to Athens for higher education where he was taught by Plato. In 338 B.C., Aristotle went home to Macedonia to start tutoring King Philip IIs son, the then 13-year-old Alexander the Great. Aristotle started his own school in Athens, called the Lyceum. On and off he spent most of the remainder of his life working as a teacher, researcher and writer at the Lyceum in Athens. One of the main focuses of Aristotles philosophy was his systematic concept of logic. Aristotles wanted to come up with a universal process of reasoning that would allow man to learn every conceivable thing about reality. He liked to make detailed observations of the world, taking notes and records of what he saw. In this way Aristotle laid the foundation of science today. Aristotles philosophy not only provided man with a system of reasoning, but also touched upon ethics. In Nichomachean Ethics, he prescribed a moral code of conduct for what he called good living. He asserted that good living to some degree defied the more restrictive laws of logic, since

the real world poses circumstances that can present a conflict of personal values. That said, it was up to the individual to reason cautiously while developing his or her own judgment. Time crumbles things; everything grows old under the power of Time and is forgotten through the lapse of Time. Thomas Aquinas Thomas Aquinas was born on January the 28th 1225 and died on March the 7th 1274. Thomas Aquinas was a saint, he also was a priest and doctor of the catholic church in Italy. Aquinas' Ethics are the ethics derived from Saint Thomas Aquinas. For Thomas Aquinas, philosophy is simply thinking about what one should and should not do. This

family was against his religious life but he didn't care he stayed a catholic, his family sent a woman to tempt him but he rejected her and god gave him the title of Angelic Doctor.

Australian Medical Association The A.M.A. code of ethics articulates and promotes a body of ethical principles to guide doctors conduct in their relationships with patients, colleagues and society. Because of their special knowledge and expertise, doctors have a responsibility to improve and maintain the health of their patients who, either in a vulnerable state of illness or for the maintenance of their health, entrust themselves to medical care. Each state and territory has laws regulating the prescription of medicine that determine: who can prescribe, what medicines, in what circumstances, in what manner, for what purpose, as well as additional conditions. As laws vary in each jurisdiction, doctors must be careful they understand and comply with the laws in force where they practice. Doctors are trained to think independently, to make decisions, and to discharge their duty of care in the best interests of the patient. The code of conduct for the A.M.A holds many expectations of ethical behaviours of doctors. Some of which include the doctor is to maintain the confidentiality of the patient, treat your patient with compassion and respect, when a personal moral judgement or religious belief prevents the doctor from recommending some form of therapy, they must inform their patient so they can seek help

elsewhere, and they must keep themselves up to date on relevant medical knowledge, codes of practice and legal responsibilities.
