International Ethics

(REMEMBER) There are more than 200 countries in the world with many differences among them, including in ethical. (REMEMBER) This week, we learned about international ethics. According to Wikipedia, International ethics is an area of international relations theory , which concerns the extent, and scope of ethical obligations between states in an era of globalization. (CREATE) In short, I define international ethics as ethics which are applicable and are assumed to be true in every countries.

(REMEMBER) This week, we discussed on Japanese ethics. (ANALYZE) When I was in high school, I learned Japanese language. My teacher liked to share her experience with us about Japanese culture. She showed us how Japanese people use to walk, they walk fast n concentrate on their steps. Japan is known as the most punctual country in the world. Even though Japan is one of the most developed countries, but they still uphold the ethical essence. How they manage to do it? (ANALYZE) In my opinion, the ethics which are applied in Japan have more contributed in the development of Japan. (REMEMBER) As it is mentioned in class, there are some ethics in Japan, such as: discipline, cleanliness, politeness, collectivism and individualism responsibilities, highly modern and deeply ethical , etc.

(EVALUATE) I have been asked by my teacher “Japan and Indonesia started rebuild their countries at the same time (August 1945), but why Japan is much more developed than Indonesia?”.   (CREATE) Today, i got the answer, in Indonesia, they say that we have discipline as one of our ethics, but they do not practice it. Most of Indonesian people are not punctual. (ANALYZE) I think, this is why Indonesia is still developing while Japan already developed.

(REMEMBER) Beside international ethics, we also learned about Islamic ethics. (UNDERSTAND) Talking about religion is something which is very sensitive. (ANALYZE) Every religion has their own belief and each of them might be extremely different. This situation can lead to divine command. (REMEMBER) According to the note which was given by Mr. Jaime, Divine Command ethics is based on the belief that moral standards depend on a Supreme Being with supreme intelligence. The Divine Command framework says that any act that conforms to the law of God is right.
