Boas Loeb Posted 9 months ago This principle can also be applied to ethics. The only real moral questions we have to answer is therefore how we should move. Hi Amos! I do agree with you, that concepts can help us to pick the right movement. But I don't think that ONLY conscious concepts can do that. In fact i'm even convinced, that only very little of our movement is actually conscious, and only in these moments of conciousness, moral decisions depend on these ethical concepts. So most of the time, we just do what feels right, what's intuitive. So intuitive moral concepts seem to be making a much greater difference, no? More so, if i think back about the things i did wrong, i usually didn't have any conciousness of them. I wasn't thinking: Oh, that's really wrong or stupid - let's do it anyway. So I don't want to say, that these concepts are not important at all! If you think about the concept of human rights, for example, i do think it brought a change of paradigm, that did do a huge difference. But how important is it in your daily life? What i think all of this could mean, is a shift of focus from the conscious, morals and other concepts to the actual doing of us and, for example, unconcious or intuitive morals. It probably does have a much greater effect, if you reflect on what you did exactly - with just a very intuitive concept of whether that was right or wrong, than if you'd reflect about what concept of right or wrong you'd like to use in the future.
