There are over a thousand entries for the word ethics in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and nearly a thousand entries for the word systems. You would think that with that many entries between the two words there would be numerous combinations of the two and you would be wrong. Although there are entries for business ethics systems, medical ethics systems and so forth.; there is a void when you look for intersections between systems and ethics. Ethics is the branch of philosophy that is concerned with how people ought to act and the search for a definition of right conduct and the good life. SYSTEMATIC ETHICS AND ETHICAL SYSTEMS

Although there are entries for business ethics systems, medical ethics systems and so forth.; there is a void when you look for intersections between systems and ethics. Ethics is the branch of philosophy that is concerned with how people ought to act and the search for a definition of right conduct and the good life. Systems seem to be an understanding of the circular nature of the phenomenal world that we inhabit and an appreciation that every utterance we make, every step we take may and probably will have consequences beyond what we can see in front of us. For the most part, systems thinking or systematic thinking has not informed ethics and ethics has not informed systems thinking. I hope that we can have a conversation about the intersection of systems thinking and ethics; I think that an appreciation of both could lead to a new epistemological experience
