SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

amoral (adj) not being particularly concerned about morals; nonmoral; having no moral standards at all.

To be amoral is not to worry whether an action is moral or not. For example, education right from the elementary to the highest stage in most countries gives little importance to training the learners in morals. The stress is on the knowledge of various subjects of study. So we can say that the present system of education is amoral. Amoral is not to be particularly concerned about what is moral or not, whereas immoral implies a person choosing to do the wrong thing.

  • The amoral nature of the education systems in almost all countries has no place for instruction in morals, so the learners also grow into amoral persons.
  • Intellectual giants and eminent scientists are mostly amoral. That is why they are not particularly concerned about the bad consequences of their innovations and inventions which are used often for wrong purposes.
