 Ethical relationship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As contrasted to theories of ethics that derive from social dispute resolution, or the meta-ethics as defined in Western moral philosophy, ethical traditions emphasizing abstract moral codes expressed in some language with some judgemental hierarchy, ethical relationship theories tend to emphasize human development.
Visotzky exploits much of the Talmudic, midrash and magisterium, demonstrating that these Jewish theological traditions too had often focused on the ethical relationship, not only between Man and God, but between others in one's family, tribe or community.
An ethical relationship, in most theories of ethics that employ the term, is a basic and trustworthy relationship that one has to another human being, that cannot necessarily be characterized in terms of any abstraction other than trust and common protection of each other's body.

 OpinionJournal - CULTURE CLASH
Tradition, then, is the only possible mode for transmitting a community's habits of the heart, and it does this by providing the recipe for making the kind of human beings who will viscerally feel and respond to the same habits of the heart as the community to which they belong.
A tradition's very oldness--its survival through the vicissitudes of centuries and adaptability to so many social and historical "environments"--was for him prima facie evidence that it was "fit" to survive, just as a species that has survived a variety of environmental challenges may be said to be "fit" in terms of the evolutionary struggle.
The primary function of the family as an ethical institution is to provide a schedule of developmental expectations appropriate to males and to females--to wire this set of normative expectations into the visceral system of the child while he or she is still young.

 CHAPTER IV
The interpretation of tradition, in fact, is a process in which the horizon is reframed and created, and in which the prejudice is tested and transformed in a fusion of present and past horizons.
Therefore, Confucianism regards ethical thought as its root, and the interpretation of the Confucian ethical spirit is of importance in understanding the characteristics of Confucian culture.
The fusion of horizons is the aim of the interpretation of tradition and the result of a dialogue between the present and the past.

I characterized the overall ethical framework in the //lam rim// tradition as teleological, but this definition seems to entail a consequentialist view, not to say a utilitarian one, since dreyfus.txt Page:43 practices are determined as ethical in relation to their results.
It concerns the overall ethical framework of the tradition as well as a limited range of important virtues involved in the practice of meditation, which are central to the tradition.
Meditation in particular becomes central to ethical life, understood as the development of the virtues or excellencies constitutive of human flourishing that is the goal of the Buddhist tradition.

 CHAPTER XIV
This response is chiefly anchored in ethical knowledge, that is, in the participant's "understanding of an ethical tradition's significance for coping with novel or exigent circumstances.
In an ethical context, one primary employment of an objective principle, in contrast to that of personal precepts, consists in the aim of arriving at a conclusive determination or settlement of disputes that arise out of human conflict.
Perhaps it is in this context that the challenge of ethical objectivism, quite apart from the issue of philosophical plausibility, is valuable as an external challenge, when this challenge is construed as a reasonable demand for a statement of principles that have the status of objectivity independently of personal commitment.

 Learning for a Better World: What has "Ethical Investing" to do with Ethics?
Perhaps ethical investment should be called "scrupulous investment", leaving it ambiguous as to whether that word be used in its common or its theological sense.
Ethical investment as currently codified gives a heroes and villains picture of the economic world with some investments portrayed as ethical and others portrayed as not.
The sheer length of the ethical investment list, and the fact that the logic behind it could result in even longer lists, suggests that ethical investment may not just be scrupulous in the ordinary sense of the word, i.e.

 Ethical Wills
An ethical will offers an opportunity to pass on family traditions, personal beliefs that you value, forgiveness and blessings, and practical advice for everything you’ve learned since kindergarten.
An “ethical will” is quite different from your “last will and testament.” Unlike the latter, an ethical will doesn’t require a lawyer, or that you be a certain age.
More importantly, an ethical will can include a health history, as you remember it, so future generations can anticipate health concerns that may cross their path.

 T.H. Green and the Development of Ethical Socialism
This book uncovers the philosophical foundations of a tradition of ethical socialism best represented in the work of R.H. Tawney, tracing its roots back to the work of T.H. Green.
The book shows how Tawney adopted the key features of the idealists' philosophical settlement and used them to help shape his own notions of true freedom and equality, thereby establishing a tradition of thought which remains relevant in British politics today.
Green and his colleagues developed a philosophy that rejected the atomistic individualism and empiricist assumptions that underpinned classical liberalism and helped to found a new political ideology based around four notions: the common good; a positive view of freedom; equality of opportunity; and an expanded role for the state.

 Antithetical Ethics: Kenneth Burke and the Constitution
The sophistic calculus Jarratt describes did not demand an anarchic return to pure beginĀ­nings; instead, it began with tradition, understood it, and spoke to the audience that tradition had produced.
Precedent, which is in fact a form of traditional narrative, is just one of the potential connections in this mix, but it is one of the most compelling, a boon to a rhetor able to use it and a danger to the rhetor who forgets its power to dominate and occlude.
The Constitution does not shape the end, as would a strictly logical calculus; rather, it provides the venue in which various endings can be shaped, as needed or as rhetorically legitimized.

 The Debate Link: Tradition...TRADITION!
I suppose one could find inconsistencies and contradictions within the tradition, in which case the purpose of ethical inquiry is to "purge" the "impurities" which mar the tradition, but that doesn't address what we do when the superstructure itself is flawed.
Think of the tradition of Christian anti-Semitism in Europe, which enabled the Holocaust even as enlightenment values of universalism and human rights were supposedly reaching their pinnacle.
Tradition is almost by definition passive, all it demands of us is to do what what we've always done.

But today, more and more Americans are resorting to another kind of will, a so-called ethical will that began as an oral tradition and has its roots in the Bible.
Ethical wills are letters written by anyone at any age to anyone, but mostly to children and grandchildren, expressing the writers' values, blessings, faith, life's lessons and stories, and sometimes instructions.
It doesn't mean that ethical wills need to be sanitized to the point that someone would read it and have no sense of this is the person who had wrote it.

Ethical nihilism does have one problem in common with ethical relativism: if you are an ethical nihilist, then you are committed to having no ethical beliefs at all, not even beliefs like the one about torturing children cited in the previous paragraph.

 FT February 2002: A Century of Skepticism
The current ethical skepticism of American law schools (in both its utilitarian and law—as—power varieties) mirrors the skepticism of the academy as a whole.
Without the possibility of God, writers like Posner see no escape from their moral skepticism, yet their viewpoint falsifies everyday human experience as much as it does religious tradition.
Gilbert Harman puts it this way: “If we suppose that beliefs are to be justified by deducing them from more basic beliefs, we will suppose that there are beliefs so basic that they cannot be justified at all.” Traditional images of human reasoning portray the most important of our beliefs as the least justified.

 Thursday Theology - THE PROMISE OF LUTHERAN ETHICS -- Back to the Decalogue?
New Testament ethical admonition summarizes the substance, the Gestalt, of Christian freedom as having Christ as master and being led by the Spirit.
To this Huetter adds a fourth corrective for the fallacy: his own reading of Luther that combats today's ethical antinomianism [=no place for law whatsoever] whereby the Reformer is shown linking Christian freedom to God's commandments in his own theological ethics.
And even with these two, the second one finally steamrollers over the first in Huetter's conclusion (curiously labelled "The End"): "Christian ethics in the tradition of the Reformation serves the remembrance of God's commandments and the interpretation of.
