Notes- From textbook “Critical thinking” by Paul and Elder

The three intellectual tasks we believe to be the most important to ethical reasoning are:

1. Mastering the most basic concepts and the principles inherent in ethical issues.

2. Learning to distinguish between ethics and other domains of thinking with which ethics is commonly confused.

3. Learning to identify when native human egocentrism and sociocentrism are impeding one’s ethical judgments

If any of these three foundations are missing in a person’s ethical reasoning, that reasoning will likely be flawed
