Our moral experience seems to be increasingly fragmented, while our ethics codes have become problematic, open to revision, sometimes so deep as to make the idea of a clear reading of our morality something inaccessible.

These explorations do not offer a conclusive view of the problems that indicate, if ever this is possible, but intend to converge on an idea that, as a backdrop, is central, namely that ethical experience is perceived by us as a narrative unit: a units sometimes jagged where boundaries are unknown, but we cannot help but think and rethink, asymptotically, as a unit.

Abstract

Our moral experience seems to be increasingly fragmented, while our ethics codes have become problematic, open to revision, sometimes so deep as to make the idea of a clear reading of our morality something inaccessible. The moral action and the ethical knowledge resemble thus the exploration of a partially unknown territory. In this volume conceptual explorations are offered of some islands - calculus, community, equality, threats, progress, rules – of moral philosophy. These explorations do not offer a conclusive view of the problems that indicate, if ever this is possible, but intend to converge on an idea that, as a backdrop, is central, namely that ethical experience is perceived by us as a narrative unit: a units sometimes jagged where boundaries are unknown, but we cannot help but think and rethink, asymptotically, as a unit.
