About Common Sense Ethics:
I started Common Sense Ethics in 2013 from a desire to unite philosophy with personal growth elements from the classical wisdom traditions, positive and Jungian psychology movements. The goal is to create a holistic, practical framework for personal growth.
Analytic philosophy can be abstract and theoretical, and with the exception of the ancient Socratic and Stoic traditions, it tends to lack introspective dimensions common to the personal growth and psychology fields.
On the other hand, self help resources often are superficial and arbitrary because they are not based on philosophy, religion, or the wisdom traditions. Self-help resources do not or incompletely focus on ethics, character, individual rights, responsibility, critical thinking, and personal conduct. These topics are often the focus of philosophical and religious sources.
Common Sense Ethics seeks to bridge this gap emphasizing the primacy of ethics, character, and personal conduct - drawing from diverse sources and written in a way that everyone understands.
What makes Common Sense Ethics different? I write about eclectic topics including family and parenting, non-partisan political analysis, practical tips for leading a better life, analysis of movies, books, and TV shows, media/information literacy, personal growth advice from famous philosophers, happiness, and much more.
I created this site to enrich the lives of others. It is also a way for me to give back to the online community. I am grateful to creators of interesting and valuable content that has helped me to learn and grow.
