Morality

Morality is the human attempt to define what is right and wrong about our actions and thoughts, and what is good and bad about our being who we are. It can be a body of standards or principles derived from a code of conduct from a particular philosophy, religion, or culture, or it can derive from a standard that a person believes should be universal. Conformance to a recognized code, doctrine, or system of rules of what is right or wrong and to behave accordingly. No system of morality is accepted as universal, and the answers to the question “What is morality?” differ sharply from place to place, group to group, and time to time.

Post Creole Continuum

Post Creole Continuum represents the range of dialectal variations found in many creole-speaking communities. It also known as the creole continuum. It was coined by linguist David DeCamp, “Toward a Generative Analysis of a Post-Creole Speech Continuum” in Pidginization and Creolization of Languages, in 1971. Due to social, political, and economic factors, a creole language can decreolize towards one of the languages from which it is descended, aligning its morphology, phonology, and syntax to the local standard of the dominant language but to different degrees depending on a speaker’s status.

Moral Responsibility

Moral Responsibility refers to the duty that individuals and groups have to act in accordance with the moral principles that are important to their social communities and to humanity at large. It does not necessarily equate to legal responsibility. Moral Responsibility may often be the case that when a person is morally responsible for an act, they are also legally responsible for it, the two states do not always coincide. When people attribute moral responsibility, they usually attribute it to individual moral agents.

Eudaimonia

Eudaimonia is a term of classical Greek word, which is commonly translated as “happiness”, but perhaps better described as “well-being” or “human flourishing” or “good life”. It is a moral philosophy that defines right action as that which leads to the “well-being” of the individual, thus holding “well-being” as having essential value. It is one of the central concerns of ancient ethics, and a subject of much disagreement. Eudaimonia can be thought of as any theory that puts personal happiness and the complete life of the individual at the center of ethical concern.
