John Rawls’s reflective equilibrium isdialectical in the sense that it refers to people’s common opinions orconsidered judgements as a starting point for enquiry to formulate theprinciples of justice. However, this method iscriticised by Richard Hare and Stephen Stich in that people’s common opinionsmight be biased, and that these opinions cannot offer objective bases for moralitybecause they might be coloured by individual differences, local cultures orgenetic factors. The current research has addressed this epistemological problem inlight of the recent argument on the dialectical conception of epistemicjustification, and considered how this method offers a reliable basis forformulating ethical values. The analysis has described the process ofethical reasoning, particularly theoretical acceptance, thereby showing how thereflective equilibrium method works according to humans’ natural process ofconcept formation and how it contributes to creating a unified, systematic andobjective scheme of ethical values. The current research has concluded that a dialectical approach contributes positively to the purpose of ethical theory, which is to clarify the ideas of ethical values and offer a conceptual framework for issuing ethical judgements.
