25 What is business ethics? ). Typically this may include minor infringements of laws which are intended as administrational or where arbitrary limits have been set. This is not to say that such laws can be broken but that extensive ethical analysis may not be useful. Some non-deontological approaches to ethics relate to character development or to maximising social benefit which are simply not addressed by the law, except as they relate to resulting actions. It is not illegal to wish someone harm unless you do (or perhaps say) something about it, though this does not show a high level of moral development!
