Here, as in her earlier Moral Understandings, Walker treats morality “as a phenomenon of human life in real time and space consist[ing] in trust-based relations anchored on our expectations of one another that require us to take responsibility for what we do or fail to do, and that allow us to call others to account for what they do or fail to do” (1998, 23). On her view, which we might call that of a moral anthropologist as much as a moral psychologist, morality is the study of us as beings capable of entering into, sustaining, damaging, and repairing such relations.
