We put a lot of focus on the content of our disagreements; we don't even seem to consider what causes us to have such different perspectives in the first place.

This episode covers the methods we use to approach issues that act as our interpretive lens for our arguments:

  1. Rule Based
  2. Greatest Good
  3. Teleological

Based on Lawerence Kohlberg's "Methods of Moral Reasoning" and the social ethics of Deontology, Consequentialism, Utilitarianism, and Teleology, we see what causes us to have such divergent thoughts and irreconcilable differences.
