Ethics Centre playlist, part 3: moral intuition and ethical judgment

Sometimes when we think a course of action “just doesn’t seem right,” there’s a good chance that it isn’t. These gut instincts—or moral intuition—should clue us into the need to slow down and investigate the decision more carefully. This final video from the Australian Ethics Centre highlights the importance of employing critical thinking to carefully investigate those intuitions—of carefully considering the quality of the data that informs our choices and of the need to explore the context (Practice C1) and to consider whether this course of action brings greater equity to those affected by the decision.
