Re: A good theory of Ethics is emerging.

Prof wrote: The three major schools of thought in academic ethics are Virtue Theory (VT); Consequentialism; and Deontology. The latter is concerned with promises, contracts, rights, duties, obligations and imperatives (which it claims are universal and categorical.) The small social corner that I o...

Re: A good theory of Ethics is emerging.

We need more programs in the model of The Marshall Plan, this time to install solar panels for the people of sub-Saharan Africa where a desert exists; and, to hold back further desertification, this program of aid ought turn their deserts into gardens.

Re: The Golden Rule as Stemming From Geometry

I agree. With your permission I'd like to pass some of these ideas along to readers. It is brilliant of you, Eodnhoj7, to notice that about those maxims, those moral principles.

Send me a private message, telling me your name. I will see to it then that you get credit.



Keep up the good work!

A system connects the dots, and it serves to explain what earlier, before we know the theory , seemed chaotic and left people feeling confused. In this inst...
