Amoral Meaning

What is Amoral:

Amoral is an adjective that is used to refer to all those people or things that do not have or lack the sense of morality. Works of art that do not seek to express or lack a moral purpose are also called amoral.

The word amoral is composed of the prefix to which means "lack, negation" and, moral originating from Latin we, you die, which means "customs".

They are considered amoral people to all those who act or do not follow a set of customs or rules stipulated in the different social groups in which they interact or take part, at home, school, public spaces or jobs, therefore their acts, behaviors and opinions do not follow the moral order of others.

That a person is amoral does not refer to refusing good customs or norms that already exist and that are considered correct, rather it is a way of acting according to the will or how best an individual feels.

Taoism is a philosophical line that supports amoral acts since, according to its guidelines, subjects must carry out their actions as they feel prepared, that is, experiment and learn from the good and the bad. On the other hand, if they follow the norms of what is considered moral, they would be acting on their will or free will.

Amoral and immoral

The terms amoral and immoral are different from each other, therefore they should not be confused. It is called amoral to someone or something that does not seek to follow the moral customs established in a social group, so their behaviors or customs cannot be considered good or bad.

For example, that a man leaves his house for his work naked, even having the knowledge that for those around him it is not correct to do so, it is considered an amoral act.

On the contrary, immoral refers to someone or something that does not follow or goes against good customs, rules or regulations stipulated by what a social group considers correct or appropriate, even knowing these customs.

For example, it is considered immoral for a person to steal someone else's belongings, even knowing that they should not do so, as it harms that person and breaks the law.
