Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 111 (2pt2):275-293 (2011)
|Abstract||In Menciusiia6 all humans are said to have ‘a heart that does not bear the suffering of others’. I argue that this statement is illustrated, rather than proven, by the example of our reaction to a child about to fall into a well. This illustration can be located at the most basic level of ethical universals (it is a universal example): basic ethical training; further steps in a ladder of reflection are universal reflection on ethical norms themselves, which may finally be related universally to non-ethical concerns|
