There are premises under ongoing scrutiny among which I put the "Hacker Ethic" and the "Jazz Truth", which are as close to faith/belief/hunch and superstition in general.
I really find that along with the usually-cited examples of gender/ethnic/otherness becoming more subject to detached/objective analyses, there is a change of ethics in general towards more connected/interactive/interpersonal behaviors.
John Stephens summed it up well in the acronym COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics) adopted by an organization around sex workers.
So shit changes, generally towards negative entropy! But it sure grinds exceeding slow.
