There is an ethical issue when (among other possibilities):
- someone is harmed;
- there is a good chance of someone being harmed;
- someone gets certain benefits that others don't get;
- someone is treated differently from someone else;
- someone is not treated as a rational, autonomous person;
- certain groups get benefits that other groups don't get;
- certain groups are harmed in ways that other groups aren't harmed.
In situations like these, it can be hard to know what to do.
A philosopher can help you think about and try to resolve your concerns, whether it's a personal ethical question, an issue that your organization is grappling with or anything else. A trained ethicist can help identify the relevant concerns, make your assumptions explicit and obvious, and develop and evaluate different types of arguments for and against different courses of action.
