Once one of my professors who I worked with said that he was amoral; that is, neither moral nor immoral. I guessed that there was some difference between amoral and immoral.
I have referred to the dictionaries and searched on the Google for the difference in meaning but in vain because both amoral and immoral mean almost the same.
The oxford dictionary says "amoral means behaving in a way that shows you don't care if what you are doing is wrong. It means immoral as morally wrong.
I have understood that a person who is amoral or immoral is not concerned with the morals so I could not understand the difference between amoral and immoral.
Orient longman's word master gives the meaning of amoral as having no understanding of the difference between right and wrong. It gives the meaning for immoral as "not in keeping with the principles of morality."
All these definitions have not clarified my doubt properly.
Could you please tell us the difference between the two with suitable examples and explanations.
