Discuss Evolutionary Ethics

Discuss Evolutionary Ethics in relationship to Virtue Ethics.
Question asked by: gdhick

Asked on: 22 Oct 2008

Evolutionary ethics is a very contentious subject, trying to derive ethical implications based on the fact that evolution has taken place.

Quite how evolution should have anything to say about morality seems very bizarre indeed - there seems no logical link between the fact that evolution may occur and morality; what is the link between the two? Nothing - but very tenuous arguments to the case that its role on shaping human psychology and behaviour can have certain ethical implications read into it. All very odd.
