Thomas Aquinas' concept of law is an example of the application of Aristotelian teleology to the integral theory of ethics, law and governing. Aquinas' concept of natural law is called moral law by many scholars. Man is able to anticipate the law of action in relation to eternal law, and such participation in eternal law Thomas calls natural law. The ethics starts from the principle good is to be done and evil is to be avoided. This principle is the basis for the rest of the ethical precepts concerning what is to be done and what is to be avoided. Man has innate general orientations on how to live and behave in this world. Conscience evaluates and judges the motives and moral qualities of actions. This is the main idea of natural law, which is described in the article.

This paper explores the ethical issues encountered in Translation Studies research, with special reference to literary translation from Finnish into English. The underlying general principles can be found in various publications on research ethics, academic and institutional ethical guidelines and translator ethics. I seek to show that research in Translation Studies may have a strong practical impact on the translators whose work is used as research data, yet research methodologies currently in use in Translation Studies do not take the implications of this impact into account. I also claim that, to date, the specific issues arising in TS research have not been adequately discussed in guidelines on general research ethics and/or on translator ethics.

Abstract

In this study, the author reflects on his personal experiences and dilemma, when in 2000 an analyst from the Missing in Action Division of the United States Department of Defence asked him to identify some photos taken during the 1980-s in Vietnam. Although the author refused this request at first, he later realized that he would in fact have to identify himself on the photos and agreed to cooperate. The department wanted to make sure that the person in question was not a lost American officer previously detained in a “re-education camp”. The mere fact of this request shocked the author, making him aware of the ideological, political and ethical hazards of field research in Vietnam and the dangers generally inherent in anthropological fieldwork. His article investigates these problems.
