A moral rule is an assertion that a particular action is good or bad regardless of its consequence.

Moral rules are usually found in collections which express the values of a given community or institution; such a collection is referred to as a moral code.


  • Moralism is the practice of viewing actions in terms of moral rules, rather than in terms of their consequences.
