“In education for ethical decision making, we find that what we call vulnerability and recognition are necessary preconditions even before conscience comes into play. There has been a shift in discourse today on “vulnerability” from a meaning that focuses on being in need to being responsive. Today it is the Vulnerable one who is the person who hears the cry of the poor! This meaning of vulnerability couples with the notion of “recognition” that sees and hears what others often overlook. This talk will make connections among three terms, conscience, vulnerability and recognition. It will be practically oriented and not conceptually heavy.”

Fr. James Keenan
