    Good is a fuzzy concept

    Good can be seen in different ways and is therefore hard to recognise or discuss. This post is part of an introduction to the concept of Rosetta. One reason why discussion about what is right or wrong doesn’t always have the effect it deserves is that it is so hard to agree on what good…

    Introducing Rosetta: Making good more doable by learning to recognise it

    ‘Good’ often doesn’t get the attention it deserves. This needs to change. The next couple of months (February – June), my posts will focus on learning to recognise opportunities to do good and avoid bad.
