Abstract: In this article, I will analyze the main criteria of corrupt action and the ethical view behind the definitions of corruption. I analyze some definitions, among which belong to Transparency International, The Asian Development Bank, The Korean Independent Commission against Corruption, and the Indonesian Act of Corruption Crime. I show that generally, there are three main criteria to identify corrupt action, first the misuse of authority, second the evidence of grant seeking, and third is detrimental to the economy or finance of the state. In analyzing the ethical view, I use two schools of ethics i.e., deontological ethics and teleological ethics. Based on this view, I conclude that behind the definitions of corruption, we find that teleological ethics is more dominant than deontological ethics. Perhaps, it is easy to understand why this basis of view is used in understanding corruption. The most important is because it is practical and easier for identifying corrupt action.
