Reason as an instrument to determine morality — II

In my earlier post, I had made three arguments
  1. Morality has multiple resources.
  2. Morality can exist independent of religion.
  3. Reason can be an instrument to determine morality and we often use it, even if we may not be aware of it.
Sean Carroll adds a nuance to it, saying that empathy should be a component of such “reasoning process”.

I agree with Prof Carroll’s argument. Empathy is necessary part of reasoning. Reason and empathy are not opposed to each other.
