Building a Moral Foundation: Moral Landscaping Part 2 Episode 73

In this episode of The Secular Hubcast we welcome Chris Shelton: a podcaster (Sensibly Speaking), critical thinker, ex-Scientologist and friend of the show. Together we further develop the ideas examined in the first part of our Moral Landscaping series. During our discussion Chris provides some push back that helps to further clarify and hone the ideas behind Building a Moral Foundation. The discussion gets a little heated but ends with smiles and handshakes.

 

This series is designed to build a moral foundation that you can use in your everyday life. Its meant to provide guidance and understanding of what morality is, how we can properly engage with it and how we can avoid moral relativism and other pitfalls of moral judgement and thinking. You can measure your own moral code to the foundation built in this series to determine if your moral position should be taken seriously.

Episode 36 – Thinking About Thinking

We are all thinking all the time.  With some of us it might not always appears so, but our minds are running constantly.  Opinions, beliefs, evidence,  facts; all these elements combine and form in our minds.

Critical thought is a manner of thinking that will lead to greater and more factual understanding of the universe.  It relies on measurements and evidence and avoiding problems in thinking to reveal truths and separate them from falsehoods.

But truth is an ongoing process.  Truth is always tentative.  In this discussion Jesse and Paul get into the complexity of it all to break it down and simplify it.

In this episode we rely pretty heavily on a piece of writing called “A Field Guide to Critical Thinking” by James Lett.  Check it out and let us know what we got wrong in this episode.
