Integrating Ethics

From Thought to Action





Module 2

Ethical Judgment



Some people fail to see the ethical dimensions of given situations. Others have distorted ethical vision that results largely from rationalization, defense mechanisms, or from an unwillingness to focus on the problem so that it is seen clearly. These can contribute/reinforce perceptual problems and prevent empathy.
