Systematizing, defending, and recommending
concepts of right and wrong behavior
…investigates where our ethical principles come from, and
what they mean. Are they merely social inventions?
Normative ethics
…seeks 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.
Applied ethics

Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction,
allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except
where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such
protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
