Prof. Gewirth Notes Disparity
In Studies of Ethics, Science

2309 W. Stadium Blvd. NO 5-5705


"There is a fundamental dis-
parity between the philosophical
approaches to ethics and science,"
Prof. Alan Gewirth of University
of Chicago's philosophy depart-
ment said in introducing "Posi-
tive 'Science' and 'Normative
'Ethics"' yesterday.
"Ethical and scientific agree-
ment is complex," he continued.
Prof. Gewirth explained that a
disparity occurs when science is
approached on one level and ethics
on another.
"This disparity between the
philosophical approach to science
and ethics is created by a differ-
ence in functions," Prof. Gewirth
asserted. Science is "normative"
in the sense that it is restrictive
to cognitive values only, while
ethics is "positive" because it is
non-restrictive to the norms or
levels of subject matter.
Cites Example
He said, "If one says that In-
grid Bergman is not a good actress
because she lacks depth and range,
then one is using the word 'ac-
tress' normatively. This connota-
tion of 'actress' assumes certain
value criteria.".
In meta-ethics (the analysis of
ethical terms) any reference to
ethical terms is positive and not
negative and makes norms relevant
to ethics.
"Consequences arise from this
disparity," he claimed. The prob-
lem is "that ethicists are power-
less to decide between morally
good or bad ethics because they

analyze them differently from the
way philosophers analyze science.
"As a result," Prof. Gewirth
added, "discussions about the cog-
nitiveness of ethics in the light of
these disparities create inconclu-
sive results."
He then proceeded to suggest
possible justification of the, dis-
parity between a philosophical ap-
proach to science and ethics,
choosing five examples to show
their differences.
"The nature and functions of
science and ethics are different,"
Prof. Gewirth said. "Science makes
adjustment to the world in order
to predict and explain certain
phenomena, while ethics fulfills
its functions in a much less re-
strictive way."
The use of science and sciences
indicates an achievement, he con-
tinued. As an example, Prof. Ge-
to be able to succeed in explain-
wirth said to have a "science" is
ing and predicting phenomena.
Connotation Differs
"The connotation of ethics
could not be used in the sense of
achievement as science had been
interpreted," he added.
"Science has many experts,. and
their decisions are uniform and
do not vary, as seen in the study
of physics," Prof. Gewirth ex-
plained. "However, the study of
ethics has very few experts and
cannot be limited to a few solu-
"Since ethics is a positive con-
cept and is unrestrictive in ap-
proach, its solutions differ to a
far greater degree," he said. "This
also justifies the disparity."
After citing these examples,
Prof. Gewirth added, "These justi-
fications cannot outweigh the ar-
guments against the desparity, and
hence the latter cannot be justi-
He then proposed a solution
which would clarify the objec-
tives and ideals of both science and
ethics: "Philosophers of ethics
should seek norms which would
characterize their fields as phi-
losophers try to do for science.
"The realm and ideals of demo-
cracy would be a good place to
employ these changes," Prof. Ge-
wirth concluded.
