The message I seek to transmit is a cautionary observation, perhaps a complaint, about prevailing method of analysis of ethical issues, including the subcategory of ethics that consists of law. The prevailing method is patterned on the experimental technique in scientific analysis. I want to suggest that the method is inadequate for dealing satisfactorily with real world ethical and legal problems, and indeed can distort analysis and often lead to unsound conclusions.
