The paper approaches the issue of marketing ethics taking into consideration the features of the post-modern era, which influences the manner of discussing the topic. It analyses in turn the effects of post-modernism (fragmentation, consumerism and deconstruction) in other fields of activity as well. After highlighting the main criticism brought against marketing, a review of the concerns in the field of marketing ethics is performed, as well as the result of these endeavours. The paper discusses the notion of social responsibility, the effect of the application of this concept in the educational activity.
