The paper of dealing with the relationship between politics and ethics has been a subject of study for many thinkers. Philosophers, sociologists, political scientists and other fields activists, throughout different periods of social development, have dedicated themselves to this issue. This issue is becoming more and more relevant today, especially in societies in transition, in which politics seems to have strangled ethical values as part of the human behavior and its survival. The political philosopher, the Enlightener Montesquieu (1689-1755), has written: The political ethics of responsibility (duty, function) is fundamental to a good Republic, far ahead of good laws, rather than the virtues of the citizens. As it can be seen, this precious French philosopher has valued political ethics, even as a value above laws and beyond human virtues. This phenomenon has also been addressed in various scientific forms by many other thinkers at certain times. Some of them treat Ethics as a philosophical discipline but not as an independent science, others consider that ethics has its object of study and as such it is the science of morality and human values. Moreover, numerous studies have been steered on the connection and differences that exist between political science and Ethics. In this scientific paper, through the chronology of the development of ethical consciousness in political sociology, we have highlighted the importance of ethics in this science. The connection between ethics and politics from the philosophical period of the Renaissance to that of the New Age is presented chronologically.
