Video Introduction to “The Angelic Ladder”
I recommend reading every post on this blog!
But one of the posts I’d especially recommend is the one entitled “The Angelic Ladder.” It articulates the intersection between deontology — “morality is all about the rules” — and consequentialism — “morality is all about what works.”
For us Christians, this affects:
- Theories of justice and responsibility.
- Applied morality under the New Covenant.
- And many, many more topics of theological vitality.
To help make it as easy as possible, I’d like to offer the following video introduction.
After watching the video, definitely follow-up by reading the article, “The Angelic Ladder.” It contains diagrams, extra details, and some more examples to really impart the importance of building our meta-ethics on the “ladder.”
