Example text

As a developed ethical form from preexisting civil ethos, ethics in Redner’s sense also serves as the conscience of the particular civilization. It probes its standards, subjects them to higher critical standards, and systematically revises them. Importantly, no culture is completely homogeneous or monolithic. There are segments and hybrids. ” In such a situation, ethics as rational morality serves the purpose of filtering through the maze of life forms and reconciling them with its appeal to critical standards.

Your being a judge or a student can be socially constituted because it consists in your having a certain role within our institutional practices, and it is plainly up to us to assign rights and duties within those. However, races are not similarly institutional or exclusively normative features, even if some people have normative expectations of those assigned to various races. A second way of defending our retention and continued reliance on racial categories, one not entirely distinct from appeal to social construction, is to replace race with racial identity.
