“Our highest truths are but half-truths. Think not to settle down forever in any truth. Make use of it as a tent in which to pass the summer night, but build no house of it or it will be your tomb.” ~ The Earl of Balfour

Moral fallibilism is an epistemological perspective that doubles down on the fallibility of the human condition as a means toward empathizing with our mutual shortcomings as an evolving species, thus creating compassion and understanding between the extreme ideals of right/wrong, good/evil, and even the more concrete healthy/unhealthy.
