Would a moral axiom necessarily result from ontology?
I define a moral axiom as that which dictates behavior, where the action itself is designated as ethical or not (i.e. the judgment of the behavior is 'ethics'). An axiom of morality would necessarily come from the essence of being itself, wouldn't it?
To hopefully ensure that the question can actually be answered, can we formalize morality into axioms? If so, does it then follow that our axiomatic morality stems from our existence itself, or does it arise from some other source?
