An extension of the Sensmaking-Intuition Model (SIM) by defining ethics: an answer to Sonenshein

  • Olivier Charpateau


    (DRM MOST - Université Paris-Dauphine)

Registered author(s):

    Sonenshein based his Sensmaking-Intuition Model of ethical decision on a critical approach the rational models. In his model, sens-making for the ethical issue construction and the intuitive process of decision are the central articulations. But the model doesn't give a clear definition of ethics, suggesting that all ethical decisions can be evaluate on a scale of individual or collective behavior. But this scale doesn't represent the multiplicity of ethical orientations. I review the most important philosophical ethicals systems and expose the implications on the Sonenshein's model. I propose some modifications and suggest orientations for future researches.
