    Applied ethics also tackles specific moral challenges that people face daily, such as whether they should lie to help a friend or co-worker. So, whether our moral focus is big picture questions, a practical framework, or applied to specific dilemmas, moral philosophy can provide the tools we need to examine and live an ethical life.
