its an example of a set of rules or law, most understand as "morals". don't start squirming because I used the Ten Comments for a reference. its the law for Israel in the day it was given, just as Mayan's had their law back in the day.Immanuel Can wrote: ↑Sat Mar 23, 2019 5:30 pmAh. No, this makes a mistake.
It's one thing to say, "A code of commandments exists."
It's quite a different one to say, "This is the RIGHT code of commandments, and we are duty-bound to obey it."
There are many "codes of commandments," and they often command us to different things. The Mayans, for example, thought human sacrifice was a religious and moral achievement and duty. We don't.
Nietzsche thought this was true. He said that moral commands simple serve some aspect of the general human (specifically male) "will to power." In other words, they are just expressions of desire to control others, enforced by power not rightness or duty.well who has the power to enforce the contract, is where the deal is in this case. borrow money from a loan shark he will force the other party to fulfill his end. hence for fear of the normally unethical might still fulfill the agreement.
But is that moral? Are ethics no more than a power-play by ethicists and those they serve?
