The Unscrupulous Strike Back

October 16, 2012 § 1 Comment

Every decade or so I have to reiterate the point that reasoning well – that is, rigorously – isn’t the same thing as the form of moral relativism known as “rigorism”.  Reasoning less rigorously is, by definition, an error in absolute terms.  Setting up a false dialectic between rigorous reason and moral laxity just compounds the error, and the magic j’accuse “scrupulous” doesn’t help the cause of the unscrupulous.
