They are also critical to moral decision making: “The problem of reflective judging is that any actual example may fall under many descriptions and so exemplify numerous principles or practices, many of them prima facie of moral significance. The most significant single element in moral deliberation may well be coming to appreciate the actual case in a specific way, as falling under one rather than another set of descriptions and hence judgeable in the light of some rather than other practices or principles.” Onora O’Neill, “The Power of Example” (1986) 61 Philosophy 5 at 24.
