The Ethic of Loyalty to the Visible

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The previous chapter dealt with the relationship between an ethic of justice and an ethic of compassion. One of the foundations of an ethic of compassion, as I showed, is loyalty to the event—a loyalty driven by the recognition of the moral agent’s unique situation. In this chapter, I will attempt to broaden the scope of this loyalty and will refer to it as “loyalty to the visible.” I open with an explication of the nature of loyalty in general and then move on to consider loyalty to the visible in particular. This chapter will serve as a theoretical platform for the others since the “ethic of loyalty to the visible” is the foundation for all the variations of inner retreat.
