Critical Thinking in Morality

When it comes to evaluating the virtue or lack of virtue of others, we are readily critical.  Yet, what “critical” means is by no means so obvious.  Our judgment of others can only be limited to how they appear to us.  Nonetheless, each of us is all too aware of the difference between our external appearance and our inner selves.  This difference is not only what ensures that each of us is a unique and unrepeatable individual in the cosmos but also what cautions us against all too readily judging the virtue or lack of virtue of others.
