Premier Writings on Ethics


Since Hume's Guillotine, philosophers have had more trouble defending the idea of ethics generally. Here is my answer for the principle of ethics and morality:

What is the source of morality?

Perhaps the following:

•A long life (say, infinite) is more valuable than a short life.

•A short life can be forgiven.

Using this principle, the only way to be blamed is if one lives a medium-size life. But such is ridiculous by any standard! Therefore, if we have a standard (longevity or forgiveness), we are forgiven. But there is no getting rid of the standard. Hence morality.


The elements of my relative absolutism incorporate similar thoughts to those had by F. F. Centore. It is possible I read his work by searching for one of the two terms he mentions. In my theory on the subject, which adopts relative absolutism as a knowledge system rather than an ethical system, there are several related conclusions: (1) Relativized relativism = absolutism, (2) A word, or a body, etc. are all adequate foundations for association about an idea, albeit with differing formalities, (3) There is a good for each thing defined for example, by the philosophy or idealism of the thing, which whatever it is, is the thing's capacity to be a concept, (4) There is a system for every true concept; where systems cannot be produced, this means that other concepts can be preferred; there appears to be a conflict between natural systems and philosophical systems that is resolved when philosophical nature is found.

What is actually concrete is actually concrete, and what is actually sublime is actually sublime—- but only by whatever exception grants that view. The truth might be different from perception, but degrees of perception are the closest thing to the concrete. They are not always the closest thing to the sublime, but if the sublime can be perceived, then this may mean at least that SOMETHING IS sublime
