KVH: To begin this conversation in writing, I will pose a most general, yet quite critical question of our time: are ethical codes and moral conducts still a coherent subject
to philosophical/scholarly consideration (and potentially pedagogical guidance); or has the postmodern liquidity (together with the mentality of irony) disposed of the grounds to provide arguments that would seem pertinent to the realities of our fragmented society? You seem to suggest that the crisis refers to the (modern type) management of morality, not the morality itself.
