“The morality of the human act depends primarily and fundamentally on the ‘object’ rationally chosen by the deliberate will, as is borne out by the insightful analysis, still valid today, made by Saint Thomas.”2 The moral value of human acts (whether they are good or
The word that would seem to correspond to the noun “ethics” would be “morals.” Until the nineteenth century, morals had some academic standing and there were philosophical treatises on morals. Today, "morals" has a pinched meaning similar to “moralize” and is often restricted to a sexual connotation.

Learning is a critical component for autonomous agents so that they can discover novel behaviors, adapt to a non-stationary world, and handle unanticipated events. As virtual and physical agents become more common, these learning agents need to handle interactions not only with an environment, but also with other agents. Multiagent learning thus
