How can this article be improved?[edit]

Hi all--I made some changes to the lead, mainly adding inline citations and clarifying some of the language. I think there should be a few more significant changes to the page.

First, this bit: "An emerging typology for applied ethics[7] uses six domains to help improve organizations and social issues at the national and global level: Decision ethics, or ethical theories and ethical decision processes Professional ethics, or ethics to improve professionalism Clinical ethics, or ethics to improve our basic health needs Business ethics, or individual based morals to improve ethics in a business environment Organizational ethics, or ethics among organizations Social ethics, or ethics among nations and as one global unit"

I looked into the source and it looks like this is a typology specifically for health ethics, not applied ethics broadly speaking. As such, I think that part should perhaps be removed.

I think the "modern approach" section should be expanded on. I also think we could add sections on the more popular areas of applied ethics, including business ethics, bioethics, and environmental ethics.
