Ethics is a necessary value for human beings living in an emotional society. If humans have no ethical base as a standard to instruct their behaviors, humans will be similar to other living beings, neither more nor less. The difference between humans and animals is that humans have a reason, emotion, and love which are expressed in relations between people and people. And the society of humans formed from these ethical values is prerequisite for it to exist and develop. In each culture, country or region with different cultures or different doctrines, we see different concepts of ethics. However, all the concepts have one common characteristic that is to direct people to good behaviors in relations between people and people. In this article, We will present and analyze some concepts of ethics of Québec and of Vietnam and then we will state my own opinion about the concept of ethics. This article includes 3 parts, the beginning, the body, and the conclusion
