This paper consists of a discussion of the three general theories of ethics, on the one hand as a framework for “solving” ethical dilemmas and on the other, as a stepping-stone, for the ethical analysis and evaluation of behavior and practices. We conclude this paper with an exposition of the Integrity Approach that integrates consequentialist, deontological, and virtue ethics.
