What are the axioms of morality
Ontology and moral axioms
Would a moral axiom necessarily arise from ontology?
I define a moral axiom as what dictates the behavior, calling the act itself ethical or nonethical (i.e. the judgment on the behavior is "ethics"). An axiom of morality would necessarily come from the very essence of being, wouldn't it?
Can we formalize morality into axioms to hopefully ensure that the question can actually be answered? If so, does it follow that our axiomatic morality comes from our very existence or from some other source?
If we were to agree with Kant in defining morality by self-attachment, an ontology would always yield a moral axiom (I would call it a "maxim") aimed at defining the self in the ontology.
A problem arises in formalizing morality in axioms. According to Godel's incompleteness theorem, an axiomatic system cannot be both consistent and complete. So if we define morality with an axiomatic system, we get either contradictions or undecidable sentences.
