Ethics as Narrative Universality in Particularity/Lancelot S. Tong

Lancelot S.Tong 湯紹源




In the post-modern age, a universally acceptable ethical code becomes impossible. In light of Stanley Hauerwas’ concept of virtue and community, narrative emerges as one venue to ethics. This article seeks to argue the un-necessity of a universally accepted truth claim in light of Christian understanding. Furthermore, the article insists only from the Christian particular, a meaningful ethics can be obtained. And a universal truth then becomes possible.
