ETHICS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIESENTIRE WEEK 1ASFORD UNIVERSITYAlthough there are several different usages and meanings of theory in the social sciences, the two that are central to our course are theory construction and schools of thought.Theory construction is focused on the process by which individuals construct theories of social reality. The components of theory in this usage are assumptions, concepts, definitions, and relationships. An assumption is a belief about something assumed true, but with no evidence to support it either way. A concept is a social phenomenon, some aspect of social reality. Concepts have names and definitions. For instance, the first sentence in this paragraph includes a named concept (theory construction) followed by its definition. And relationships are statements about how concepts are related or connected. For example, one assumption is that individuals are moral beings that can choose between right and wrong. A number of concepts follow from this assumption. One such concept is distributive justice, which can be defined as an individuals perception that a fair exchange is one in which those who work harder should receive more than those who receive less. Injustice occurs when those who do not work at all receive the same amount, or even more, than those who work very hard. Consider your employment experiencehave you ever had the experience of working hard but having your efforts ignored while some whom does not work
