άνθρωπος = person άνδρας = man

You are right, but "άνθρωπος" has a universal significance that the word "person" does not have. For example:

mankind = ανθρωπότητα
human= άνθρωπος/ανθρώπινος.

So, "this man is not moral" could also be translated as "ο άνθρωπος αυτός δεν έχει ηθική" if you want to stress the lack of "universal" morality, that ought to exist.
