Language has a tremendous impact on our view of the world and our experience of it. That is especially true in relation to our efforts to understand and follow ethical ideals and principles. Language provides the possibility to communicate with other people and achieve a common understanding. Language also limits the range of our thinking and constrains avenues of communication. In this address, Ethical Culture Leader, Bart Worden, will attempt to sift through some of the beneficial and challenging aspects of how our use of words can help us live ethical lives.
