Morality? What Do You Mean?

An interesting article from The Conversation found its way into my inbox this morning, and the headline for it screamed for my attention. In the article, Tim Dean from the University of Sydney argues that one of the problems facing contemporary society when it comes to morality and ethical behaviour is that we don’t truly know what morality means anymore.

I don’t necessarily agree with some of his rationale, but the argument that Dean puts forward is certainly worthy of being asked – and would significantly contribute to the way in which contemporary society struggles with the increasing ethical and moral demands that our society raises. If we could all truly understand what we mean when we use the word ‘morality’ or ‘ethics’, then our public discourse might take on a different tone.

An article well worth reading…
