Developing Moral Imagination and the Influence of Belief

Nursing Ethics 4 (3):202-210 (1997)
Moral imagination has been described by Murdoch as ‘a way of seeing’. The focus of concern here is the influence of belief upon moral imagination and those attitudes that are needed if moral imagination is to be developed. The perspective adopted endorses a Humean recognition of the potent influence of personal experience upon those beliefs that are held, and therefore upon how we see the world. Kantian commitment to the power of the will, and to the ability of individuals to choose who they wish to be, allows room for optimism, a view which is supported by the findings of Liaschenko
