thank you for your important question. Aristotle’s ethics might help here. He thought that doing the ‘right’ thing meant we had to develop something called ‘practical wisdom’ – being able to see and understand what each situation requires of us. Practical wisdom is a kind of knowledge for doing and acting appropriately according to the situation and moment we are in. It is developed by making sure we look after our own character, habits and behaviours. We can look to role models for help, because it’s hard to do this. It takes time and we will probably make mistakes along the way – that’s ok, so long as we learn from them. So, attending to the world’s crises actually requires that we develop our own strengths, because our ethical responsibility begins with ourselves.
