Beyond Ethics to Post-Ethics by Peter Baofu

By Peter Baofu

is ethical goodness quite so fascinating within the manner that its proponents in the course of the a long time would favor us to think? for example, in our time, there's even this most modern model of the preferred ethical concept shared through many, while Dalai Lama recommended that “[w]e desire those human values [of compassion and affection]….Even with no religion,…we be able to advertise those things.” (WK 2009)

The naivety of this well known ethical inspiration will be contrasted with an opposing (critical) suggestion encouraged now not some time past via Sigmund Freud (1966), who as soon as wrote that “men aren't mild creatures who are looking to be enjoyed, and who on the such a lot can guard themselves in the event that they are attacked; they're, to the contrary, creatures between whose instinctual endowments is to be reckoned a strong proportion of aggressiveness. consequently, their neighbor is for them…someone who tempts them to meet their aggressiveness on him, to use his potential for paintings with out reimbursement, to exploit him sexually with out his consent, to grab his possessions, to humiliate him, to reason him discomfort, to torture and to kill him. Homo homini lupus.”

Contrary to the 2 opposing facets of this conflict for the excessive ethical flooring, morality and immorality are neither attainable nor fascinating to the level that their respective ideologues would prefer us to think. yet one will not be misunderstand this problem as a guideline that ethics is a valueless box of research, or that different fields of analysis (related to ethics) like political philosophy, ethical psychology, social stories, theology, or maybe diplomacy will be pushed aside. useless to emphasize, neither of those severe perspectives is cheap either.

Instead, this ebook presents another (better) option to comprehend the character of ethics, specially when it comes to morality and immorality—while studying from diverse techniques within the literature yet with out favoring anybody of them (nor integrating them, due to the fact they don't seem to be inevitably appropriate with each one other). This ebook bargains a brand new idea to go beyond the present techniques within the literature on ethics in a manner now not considered before.

This seminal undertaking is to essentially adjust the best way that we expect approximately ethics, from the mixed views of the brain, nature, society, and tradition, with huge, immense implications for the human destiny and what I initially referred to as its “post-human” fate.
