How Do We Know What is Right?
Whence cometh our moral knowledge? Do we have a moral sense perception? Is it knowledge at all or merely our personal preferences in disguise? How is it possible to lose all sense of right and wrong and begin collaborating with evil?
Shame, covetousness, prejudice. Do you have to be aware of an evil act to be held morally responsible? Can we really sin in ignorance? Or is that just error? Are there really such things as systemic sins, group guilt, collective crime? What was the sin of Dr Hobby in AI Artificial Intelligence? Of Victor Frankenstein? Of today?s Genetic engineers? Why would we not be aware of these sins? How would we discern a systemic evil if we are shaped by that system itself?
