A Broad Church

No Comments

Google reports about 8,190 results for the search term "ethics, broadly construed". Even allowing for the fact that some of those are for more specific variants like ‘business ethics broadly construed’ (and for the schism which has evidently opened between those who embrace the comma and those who decline), it’s a fair number. I wonder how long it can be until the broad-construers’ movement thoroughly vanquishes implicit advocates of "ethics, narrowly construed" (about 104 results), so that we can just say we do moral philosophy without feeling the slightest twinge of a need to add this almost apologetic-sounding qualification.
