This chapter explores some important ethical and meta-ethical questions raised by the differences and relationships in human nature. It highlights the value of a narrative-based ethic, including its valuation of embodiment, relationality and utopian horizons as a framework for making sense and use of these diverse forms of knowledge. It explores the connections between ideas and practice, especially the ethical and political implications of alternative ways of conceiving and construing human nature. It also proposes a kind of ethic that must take all the different natures seriously as credible critiques of established worldviews rather than simply as quaint reminders that other people are different.
