The Thinker's Guide to Ethical Reasoning (Based on Critical Thinking Concepts & Tools)
Richard Paul and Linda Elder
The development of ethical reasoning abilities is vital to the creation and ultimate success of cooperative societies. Independent of religious or cultural norms, ethical concepts promote sustainable advancement and offer a framework by which all people can not only coexist but prosper.
This guide provides insights into the nature of ethical reasoning, why it is so often flawed, and how to avoid these flaws. It lays out the function of ethics and its main impediments, the social counterfeits of ethics, the elements of ethical reasoning, important ethical abilities and traits, a vocabulary of ethics, and intellectual standards essential to assessing ethical reasoning.
As part of the Thinker’s Guide Library, this book advances the mission of the Foundation for Critical Thinking to promote fairminded critical societies through cultivating essential intellectual abilities and virtues across every field of study across world.
