Improvisation allows the virtuoso to stray, wander, explore, but not too far from home. It departs from the composition and must return to it and, indeed, even as it flows from the artist’s virtuosity, it must remain at least remotely true to the composer’s inspiration. Improvisation is like invention in that both take definite material as the base and frame for creative interpretation. Rhetorical invention finds the common and special topics suited to the case and allows the orator to work creatively with the actual circumstances of persons, times and places.

The ethicists did not only revive an Aristotelian/Ciceronian view of ethical argument as invention. They also, almost without attribution, resuscitated the ethical thought of two great American philosophers, William James and John Dewey. William James was the dominant figure in American philosophy from the 1870s to his death in 1910. James opened his essay “The Moral Philosopher and the Moral Life” by repudiating “any ethical philosophy dogmatically made up in advance ... ” He then described three questions in ethics: the psychological question, about the origin of moral ideas, the metaphysical question, about the meaning of such words as “good,” “evil” and “obligation,” and the casuistic question, about the “measure” of the goods and evils which men recognize.

The Commission drew on all these considerations to craft detailed recommendations that would allow certain sorts of research and prohibit others (National Commission, 1973).
