Video from Dallas Willard Ministries


"Handout: https://s3.us-west-1.amazonaws.com/dw... Dallas was invited to speak at UC Irvine to the 2010 Psychiatry and Spirituality Forum on what moral knowledge is and what it means for our lives. What is the disappearance of moral knowledge? It is the social reality that the knowledge institutions (primarily the universities, but also the “churches”) of our society do not presume to offer knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice to the public." from video introduction.


"UC Irvine The Psychiatry and Spirituality Forum THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MORAL KNOWLEDGE: HOW IT HAPPENS AND WHAT IT MEANS In this talk we discuss: What the disappearance of moral knowledge is, How it happened (and how it did not happen), and what it means for our lives. (1). What is the disappearance of moral knowledge? It is the social reality that the knowledge institutions (primarily the universities, but also the “churches”) of our society do not presume to offer knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice to the public. It is not a part of “testable” cognitive content of any recognized area of scholarship or practice. (The illusion of professional “ethics.”) What is knowledge and what does it do? Knowledge is the capacity to represent something as it is, on an appropriate basis of thought and experience. It and it alone confers the right and perhaps the responsibility to act, direct action, formulate policy and supervise its implementation, and teach. This helps us see what disappears along with “moral knowledge.”.. from the link above.
