Ethical approaches to risk assessment and evaluation involve systematising, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong behaviour. Philosophers usually split ethical theories into three general subject areas: metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics. Metaethics explores where our ethical principles come from, and what they mean. Are they merely social inventions? Do they involve more than expressions of our individual emotions? Metaethical answers to these questions focus on the issues of universal truths, the will of God, the role of reason in ethical judgments, and the meaning of ethical terms themselves. Normative ethics takes on a more practical task, which is to arrive at moral standards that regulate right and wrong conduct. This may involve articulating the good habits that we should acquire, the duties that we should follow, or the consequences of our behaviour on others. Finally, applied ethics involves examining specific controversial issues, such as abortion, infanticide, animal rights, environmental concerns, homosexuality, capital punishment, torture or nuclear war.
