Mit Werten in der Politik verhält es sich wie mit vielen Dingen im Leben: Erst wenn sie nicht mehr da sind, wird deutlich, wie sehr sie fehlen. Der Bezug auf Werte wird in der politischen Debatte nicht immer explizit gemacht, selten werden politische Entscheidungen dezidiert mit ihnen begründet. Wenn sie aber auch implizit fehlen, wenn sie nicht mehr Leitfaden für das politische Handeln sind, dann verliert Politik ihre Substanz und ihre orientierende Kraft.

Sample text

The shocks (which were not real) were apparently applied in the course of an experiment purporting to be about learning. If the subjects raised questions about the experiment, the experimenter, who was present in the room, ordered them to continue (saying, for instance ‘please continue’, ‘the experiment requires that you continue’, ‘you must go on’). Before the experiment, most people say that they would refuse to participate, but in fact 65 per cent of the subjects continued to shock the victim until they reached 450 volts.

I am using ‘obligation’ such that A is obligated to φ just in case A ought to φ. There is a popular usage amongst moral philosophers where obligations are always things that we owe to other agents.

For you already have the answer to your question: is p true? Instead you need to regard the question as reopened, by suspending judgement on whether p. Of course at this stage you might ulieve that p on the basis of your moral understanding and n-believe that p too. But there are a couple of reasons why the n-belief might remain suspended. Once you have formed a ulief, you have reached a settled opinion that p, you have no need of an n-belief that p as well. And secondly, it makes sense for us to replace n-beliefs with uliefs rather than to supplement them, for if the argument sketched here is right, it is morally important that it is the ulief and not the narrow belief that plays a role in further action, and if there is no n-belief, there is no chance that it will play the role instead.
