Take some time to investigate several theories of modern morality or ethics. For example, some theories or links you might come across are Immanuel Kant’s categorical imperative or W. D. Ross’ ethical intuitionismPractice “relativizing the relativizer,” as Lewis does in Chapter 2. Familiarize yourself with the theory, arguments for or against it, and how it interacts with the Tao. In Chapter 2, Lewis argues that modern ideologies claiming to be alternatives to the Tao simply take or borrow ideas from the Tao, exaggerating or inflating them into new and radical beliefs. Do the theories you are encountering seem to support this?
