Professional ethics

Professional ethics is one of the branches of ethical science. Professional ethics is a system of moral principles, norms and rules of conduct for a specialist, taking into account the characteristics of his professional activity and the specific situation. Professional ethics should be an integral part of the training of each specialist.

The content of any professional ethics consists of general and private. General principles of professional ethics, based on universal moral standards, suggest:

a) professional solidarity (sometimes degenerating into corporatism);

b) a special understanding of duty and honor; c) a special form of responsibility due to the subject and occupation.

Particular principles stem from the specific conditions, content and specifics of a particular profession and are expressed mainly in moral codes - requirements for specialists.

Professional ethics, as a rule, concern only those types of professional activity in which there is a different kind of dependence of people on the actions of a professional, i.e. the consequences or processes of these actions have a special effect on the life and fate of other people or humanity. In this regard, the traditional types of professional ethics are distinguished, such as pedagogical, medical, legal, ethics of a scientist, and relatively new, the appearance or updating of which is associated with an increase in the role of the “human factor” in this type of activity (engineering ethics) or an increase in its influence in society (journalistic ethics, bioethics)

Professionalism and attitude to work are important qualitative characteristics of the moral character of a person. They are of paramount importance in the individual assessment of an individual, but at different stages of historical development, their content and assessment were significantly different. In a class-differentiated society, they are determined by the social inequality of types of labor, the opposite of mental and physical labor, the presence of privileged and unprivileged professions, depend on the degree of class self-consciousness of professional groups, their sources of replenishment, the level of the individual’s general culture, etc.

Professional ethics is not the result of inequality in the degree of morality of various professional groups. But for some types of professional activity, the society makes high moral demands.
There are such professional areas in which the labor process itself is based on the high coordination of the actions of its participants, aggravating the need for joint behavior. Particular attention is paid to the moral qualities of workers in those professions that are associated with the right to manage people's lives, significant material values, some professions from the fields of services, transport, management, healthcare, upbringing, etc. This is not about the actual level of morality, but debt, which, remaining unfulfilled, may in some way impede the performance of professional functions.

A profession is a certain type of labor activity that requires the necessary knowledge and skills acquired as a result of training and long-term labor practice.

Professional types of ethics are those specific features of professional activity that are aimed directly at a person in certain conditions of his life and activity in society.

Professional moral standards are the guiding principles, rules, patterns, standards, the procedure for personal self-regulation based on ethical-humanistic ideals. The emergence of professional ethics in time preceded the creation of scientific ethical theories about it. Everyday experience, the need to regulate the relationship between people of a particular profession led to the realization and execution of certain requirements of professional ethics. An active role in the formation and adoption of professional ethics is played by public opinion.

Professional ethics, having arisen initially as a manifestation of everyday, everyday moral consciousness, further developed on the basis of generalized practice of behavior of representatives of each professional group. These generalizations were summarized both in written and unwritten codes of conduct of various professional groups, and in the form of theoretical conclusions, which indicated the transition from the ordinary to the theoretical consciousness in the field of professional morality.

The main types of professional ethics are: medical ethics, pedagogical ethics, ethics of a scientist, ethics of law, entrepreneur (businessman), engineer, etc. Each type of professional ethics is determined by the peculiarity of professional activity, has its own specific aspects in the implementation of moral norms and principles and in together constitutes a professional code of morality.
