I thought Caputo has a good idea as of how to address issues regarding a practical sense. I believe he is very humble and knows that he doesn't really understand anything in entirely, because of that he has a good idea of how to interact. Although I feel that the universe has solutions they are just to precise to see on a large level. I also feel that ethics are a good model to work from one just has to ask if this is an extreme case where the ethic is confused and if the set of ethics you live by can be used in that particular situation. I think the argument made was that ethics where created to make it easy to make decisions, but I don't think the intent of ethics allows us to ignore whether it's valid. I believe most ethical people don't believe that ethic are a answer all solution.
