Description

We all have moral beliefs. What if we are unsure about what to believe about a serious moral issue or if one belief conflicts with another belief we hold with equal conviction? When we come across such conflicts and doubts, we try and make our beliefs cohere; we are forced to engage in a moral inquiry. Michael R. DePaul argues that we have to make our beliefs cohere, but that the current coherence methods are seriously flawed. Methods such as that which John Rawls has proposed are intellectualist and mechanical. DePaul argues that it is not just arguments that need to be considered in moral inquiry, the ability to make sensitive moral judgements is vital to any philosophical inquiry into morality. The inquirer must consider how her life experiences and experiences with literature, film and theatre have influenced her capacity for making moral judgments and attempt to insure that this capacity is neither naive nor corrupted.
