Morning Scepticism: Familiarity

All of us are very familiar with moral decision making, it's a part of who we are. We don't need to think through why something is wrong - it just is. And chances are that if we had to think through a moral decision, we'd be rationalising our position. Trying to think things through in moral frameworks is an alien enterprise for most of us, yet it's so important that we do. Because without it, we're at risk of having our moral intuitions pass through unexamined.
