Garcia, “Reforming Healthcare Ethics,” in Medical Ethics at Notre Dame, ed. Margaret Hogan and David Solomon (Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, forthcoming).

At this level, ethics results from a common agreement on core fundamental principles based on or derived from reason.

This is quite different from how we ordinarily employ the concept.
