This blog has been establish to serve as a home for my writings on the three phases of ethical systems.


  1. I use the term 'ethical system' to mean an interconnected set of beliefs mandating a particular set of behaviours for members of a human society and thus in turn dictating how that society functions. As such, it is more about the survival and well-being of human groups than enlightenment of, or advice to, individual humans. This is an unusual approach to the subject of ethics, but it is a view we must take to understand where I'm coming from.
