Normativity and Analogy in Casuistry

  • Martin CalkinsEmail author
Part of the Issues in Business Ethics book series (IBET, volume 42)


Expanding upon earlier descriptions of casuistry as a moral method, the author explains here casuistry’s ability to convey normativity (how things ought to be, which things are good or bad, and which actions are right or wrong) and the ways casuistry uses analogy differently than other methods to reach moral judgments.
