Openness

Canadian Journal of Philosophy 20 (1):29 - 46 (1990)

Abstract
… what would be wise expediency?-to try and determine the best consequences by concealment, or to brave other consequences for the sake of that openness which is the sweet fresh air of our moral life.Common sense morality contains a concept of openness and accords positive value to behavior that exemplifies it. But it is unclear what morally valuable openness is and what sort of value it has in ordinary moral thinking.
