What are values?
A personal value is absolute or relative and ethical value, the assumption of which can be the basis for ethical action.
- Personal values are relative in that they differ between people, and on a larger scale, between people of different cultures.
- A value system is a set of consistent ethic values (more specifically the personal and cultural values) and measures] used for the purpose of ethical or ideological integrity. A well defined value system is a moral code.
Relative value may be regarded as an ‘experience’ by subjects of the absolute value. Relative value thus varies with individual and cultural interpretation, while absolute value remains constant, regardless of individual or collective ‘experience’ of it.
A value system is a set of consistent values and measures. A principle value is a foundation upon which other values and measures of integrity are based.
