Critical perspectivism

ByLaura D’Olimpio

In today’s technological society, I defend a moral attitude I name critical perspectivism. Critical perspectivism is an ethical attitude that may be applied to processing and understanding information received from multiple sources, including multimedia. It is an attitude that requires a moral agent to be critical and compassionate. To be critically perspectival means to approach information in a critically engaged way, seeking the truth by checking claims for evidence and resting belief upon sound arguments that are reflected upon logically. It also involves responding to others with compassion. In our global world, such a moral attitude is vital.
