DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45502


Pagan ethics blend supernatural and natural concepts, emphasising individual freedom, practical application of ethics, and respect. Pagans generally avoid definitive judgments on good and evil, seeing these as context-dependent. A key aspect of pagan ethics is the sacred engagement with the natural world, emphasising the importance of locality and global-environmental interconnectedness.
