AMARO CANO, María. Social, Professional, Professorial and Scientific Ethics. Medisur [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.6, pp.714-721. ISSN 1727-897X.

This article discusses the issue of ethics and morals, virtues and flaws of human beings and the societies they build in different places and historical periods as well as the construction of values as a result of their own material and spiritual needs and the dialectical interrelationship between the material base and social consciousness. It also includes the main ethical paradigms, traditions, customs and habits as important elements in the process of value formation. It underlines the role of the educator, family, school -from primary to university level- and society itself, emphasizing the ethics of health professionals and scientists. Finally, it calls for strengthening positive attitudes and fighting negative ones to be better human beings, loving and respecting our country, constructing an even more dignified, just and caring society that meets Marti’s dream "the cult of the full dignity of man".

Keywords : ethics; ethics, professional; morale; morals; social values.
