    Discussion and arguments are too taxing and emotionally disturbing. In the last chapter, I noted the wide diversity of religious experience and the persistence of differences in claims about various ideas and meanings. I am conscious that there is something vaguely embarrassing, even bad form, in this char- acterization. And even Sikhism was a brilliant effort at synthesizing elements of Hinduism and Islam, now quite individualistic. It often shields the questionable metaphysics of scientific realism. In all of this Dworkin has insisted on attention to the distinction between various articulations of equality, in these and other elds of policy-oriented theorizing, and an underlying principle of equality, which he terms the principle of equal concern and respect.

    Protection against contempt of court is not all there is to being a judge, but a ban on contempt might be thought indispensable to judicial dignity. We also demonstrate some limitations of influential personal relationship models of the partiality which might be thought appropriate to various professionalclient relationships. The following extract concerns trade-offs between high culture and the amelioration of social and economic conditions: I will now mention a case in which probably no one will hesitate. For example, the idea of God manifest in the earliest days of ancient Hebrew religion was not the same idea voiced by the eighth-century prophets.

    The opponents of equality not just equality of this or equality of that, but the basic equality of all human persons would have to be dealt with head-on, or else the liberal political enterprise surrendered. Science alone cannot decide such issues in advance of examination by critical reason. More will be said on this in Chapter Eleven. For most questions yield far more than two sides. Persons having experiences of fulfillment and self-realization cannot be argued out of their commitment by some clever intellectual who poses logical puzzles, especially if that intellectual is an unkind, self-centered pleasure seeker.

I will address this specically in Chapter. Apparently, either Zoroastrianism or Hinduism would be chief contenders. Early in the spring ofhe began his quest and reported a vision that eventuated in the founding of the Mormon Church, a denomination based on new Scriptures and one which then itself claimed new and exclusive truth!

Virtue Ethics and Professional Roles

They often do not know what the traditional language of their inherited or acquired faith intends. No transforming experience is self-validating, nor is it the final criterion of what constitutes true religion. It offers a formula for appreciating the wide-ranging differences among peoples, but like some abstract philosophical arguments, it is out of touch with living human beings and their needs, interests, claims, and ideas.

Dignity Rank and Rights

Religious beliefs are the emotional expressions of differing stories or myths that develop in one culture and another.

We do not find thoughtful leaders defending or employing such things, but we might like to see Hindu thinkers make a more overt denunciation of palmistry, astrology, charms, or the claim that eating cauliflower in the winter is not wise.

See also the survey articles on virtue ethics by Gregory E. This is a furtive timidity. Thinking is always harder than avoiding thought. Some contend that other faiths are fountains of error or that they are at least misleading and incomplete. Or are we?

Those who too readily equate religion with superstition might recall that when it comes to new superstitions, such as flying saucers or occult practices, Religion and Science 9 the "irreligious minds and liberals" are much more likely to accept them.

Several virtues specific to medical practice are then outlined and defended at the end of this chapter. Again, from that fact that theories of basic equality in previous ages have had a religious foundation, it doesnt follow that our egalitarian commitments are in- conceivable apart from that heritage.

But the line of tradition is not so sure. But nor is it an assumption that one would expect to nd in the pages of a modern journal like First Things, or in modern natural law writing, in the work of John Finnis, for example, or others who take seriously the religious dimensionof moral and political argument.

He came to the conclusion that they were all one, but he did not investigate Shintoism or Confucianism. Each has traditions, Scriptures, defenders, critics, and spokespersons. A racist or a sexist theory by contrast would be a general inegalitarian- ism, implying as it does that all humans of a certain type are superior to all humans of some other type.

Once we state the issues like this, we see at least how wrong it is to recoil at the rst reproachful mention of anachronism.

Anscombe, Modern Moral Philosophy, Philosophy. A word must be added about the genuine respect Hindus have for other religions. I think the relation between these two sorts of norms is like the relation between the general status or dignity of a judge and the specific offense of contempt.

Lockes Letter Concerning Toleration is cited by page number. As Bentham said not specifically about dignity but in an analogous context : 4 appearance of equivocation is easily dispelled.

Some have suggested that the old connection between dignity and rank was superseded by a Judaeo-Christian notion of the dignity of humanity as such,82 and that this Judaeo-Christian notion is really quite different in character.
