Literature Review: Moral problem for Philosophy

This “Ten Problems for Philosophy in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. religion,
  2. knowledge,
  3. logic,
  4. nature,
  5. mind,
  6. moral,
  7. experience,
  8. identity,
  9. political,
  10. science.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

6 Moral

THE PROBLEM — The idea of common good is widespread in moral and political philosophy, as well as in political discourse in general. Is morality supposed to be founded on a single principle, or toward a pluralistic model acknowledging the irreducible complexity of the moral domain?

CONCLUSIONS — Aristotelian naturalists may have diverging interpretations of Aristotle’s idea that the good life for a human being is a life of activity in accordance with the virtues. An adequate account of moral psychology must explain moral phenomena in terms of more basic elements: ontological frames. The challenge is to forge moral communities of practice in all of our spheres of activity. Little is known about whether and how globalization affects moral development. Moral beauty judgments and moral goodness judgments involve different cognitive processes, although they objectively refer to the same human act. Mature care is grounded in knowledge of, and respect for, others, as well as for oneself. It is unclear to what extent we should assume that people’s judgments are independently tracking the truth. Moral identity, how individuals define themselves relative to various moral attributes, is an important factor in the regulation of moral thought and behavior in organizations. Dual-process theories of morality are approaches to moral cognition that stress the varying significance of emotion and deliberation in shaping judgments of action. The extent to which professional identity impacts media professionals’ moral reasoning has yet to be examined.
