    Considered moral judgments depend on reaching an equilibrium amongst all levels of moral inquiry. Reflective equilibrium is the process of reflecting on all three levels of moral inquiry to generate a coherent view. In cases where the different levels of moral thinking conflict, we adjust each level in order to achieve an equilibrium. This chapter argues that the moral rules: do not deceive, keep your promises, do not cheat, obey the law, and do your duty, are justified moral rules. It provides analyses of deception, promises, cheating, law, and duties. After showing the importance of fallibility, it points out some problems with rule consequentialism.

      The Moral Landscape Challenge: The Winning Essay. Last August, I issued the following challenge: It has been nearly three years since The Moral Landscape was first published in English, and in that time it has been attacked by readers and nonreaders alike. Many seem to have judged from the resulting cacophony that the book’s central thesis was easily refuted. Morality (from Latin: moralitas, lit. 'manner, character, proper behavior') is the differentiation of intentions, decisions and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and those that are improper. Morality can be a body of standards or principles derived from a code of conduct from a particular philosophy, religion or culture, or it can derive from a standard that a person.

    -John Rawls views moral justification as a reflective testing of our moral beliefs, moral principles, theoretical postulates, and the like to make them as coherent as possible. -Method in ethics properly begins with our "considered judgments," which are moral convictions in which we have the highest confidence and believe to have the least bias. Extant models of moral judgment assume that an action’s intentionality precedes assignments of blame. Knobe (b) challenged this fundamental order and proposed instead that the badness or blameworthiness of an action directs (and thus unduly biases) people’s intentionality and other researchers’ studies suggested that blameworthy actions are considered intentional even.

This chapter examines several linguistic theories of moral judgments, and shows that none of them is able to distinguish between moral judgments and non-moral judgments.
