Diversity and Morality: morality underlying trust
In our time, morality and diversity collide with each other, and there seems to be no clue for compromise. The concept of trust drastically and irreconcilably changes the face depending whether we consider it by focusing on morality or on diversity. In this lecture, I plan to extract the mechanism of human morality and to propose a model for its basic principle. At the same time, I plan to discuss a novel morality system that enables integration with diversity for the future.
