Understanding the "Is" Helps Finding the "Ought"


The is/ought_problem tells that we cannot entail the “ought” from the is.

Yes, to have an idea of the “ought”, it is generally useful to have a “is” as a reference.

Therefore, instead of having a binary thinking that when discussing the “is” we won’t be able to find the “ought”, I’d rather consider that discussing the “is” might highlight possible intuitive “ought” that need to be rationalized afterward.
