I criticize the latter stance, but take seriously the former stance and hope it can be answered in future work. (shrink) Lawrence Masek (2008). These natural pleasures, indeed, are really without price; both because the are below all price in their attainment, and above it in their enjoyment. (p283-4) One principal foundation of moral praise being supposed to lie in the usefulness of any quality or action, it is evident that reason must enter for a considerable share in all decisions of this kind; since nothing but that faculty can instruct us in the tendency of qualities and actions, and point out their beneficial consequences to society and to their possessor. (p285) Reason judges either of matter of fact or of relations. (p287) In the disquisitions of the understanding, from known circumstances and relations, we infer some new and unknown.

Better Obama’s form of patching things incrementally, nudging our way to becoming a boiled lobster. off-topic (and from a lurker, natch).. Save that, 'ethics' sounds new and fresh, and 'morals' sounds old-fashioned. Some argue that the whole concept of personal well-being (which is essentially just self-interest) as an ethical master value is mistaken, especially as its very personal nature does not admit to comparisons between individuals.

Although many things are done in conformity with what duty prescribes, it is nevertheless always doubtful whether they are done strictly from duty, so as to have a moral worth. On what grounds, if not for mankind's sake? It also, however, led to the ending of what little formal moral instruction remained in the schools. Punishment looks to a wrongful event in the past and in the external world. I do not believe there is an analogous idea about law, such that would change laws in order to make the law more interesting.

The more liberally focused individuals who are not afraid to question authority and cultural convention will be able to derive a more appropriate “ought” based on their innate knowledge of harm/care and fairness/reciprocity. For example, when University of North Carolina's Dean Smith invented what was called the "four-corners" offense, and had recruited and developed a team that was suited to play it, the NCAA changed the rules the following season to include a "shot clock" so that teams could not just hold onto the ball once they got somewhat ahead.

[22] The explicit making of moral right and wrong judgments coincides with activation in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VMPC) while intuitive reactions to situations containing implicit moral issues activates the temporoparietal junction area. [23] Stimulation of the VMPC by transcranial magnetic stimulation, has been shown to inhibit the ability of human subjects to take into account intent when forming a moral judgment.

This principle then is its supreme law: Act always on such a maxim as thou canst at the same time will to be a universal law; this is the sole condition under which a will can never contradict itself; and such an imperative is categorical.
