From ancient times to the present, philosophical thinkers have thought carefully about ethical questions and have developed concepts, principles and theories that help provide reasonable answers. Still, there are no definitive answers and no fully adequate understanding of the domain of ethics. Thinking, writing, discussing, arguing… all this must continue in order for our understanding of ethics to advance. And it should continue not only among philosophers but everyone else as well. Ethical insight has never been the monopoly of philosophers, and careful ethical thinking is bound to better the lives of philosopher and nonphilosopher alike. The Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics fosters scholarship, reflection, and discussion about the ethical values and principles that frame our lives.
