Does Indifference Equal Invincible Ignorance?
What is "invincible ignorance"? Would indifference be considered as such?
Invincible ignorance means that someone does not know something through no fault of their own. For ignorance to be considered invincible, the individual must have made a reasonable application of logic to the matter at hand, reflected on it, and, for whatever reason, not reached the correct answer. Ignorance is invincible if it is not due to a lack of effort.
Indifference is basically a lack of caring what the correct answer is. If I am indifferent to the correct moral choice, then I will not apply a sufficient amount of logic and reflection to seek an answer—and therefore my ignorance cannot be considered invincible.
