Chapter 3 Ethics



How is it that humans have morality at all?  How is that we come to evidence morality in all human societies?

Why do humans care about being morality and care about others behaving morally?

In the end each human being must make moral decisions.  What is the process by which people might best set out doing this using a dialectical process of thought and review of thought and positions taken?  What role do ethical principles play in this process?
