#philosophy #utilitarianism #totalutilitarianism Parfit has this mere addition paradox which argues that a likely outcome of this philosophy being followed, is a future where there is a large number of people with very low utility values. I don't agree with this philosophy because it suggests that, as long as the group of people with low utility values, is small, it is okay. I do not think it is okay.

#philosophy #utilitarianism I believe that well-being is a subjective term, and it differs for different individuals. I would prefer a philosophy which is more objective.

The video cropped out too much. I’ll find a better set up, but anyways, what is your favorite way to take notes? I found it easier to type my lecture notes in psychology, write them in philosophy, and take brief notes in astronomy. . . . ✎ 𝘊𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴: 𝘗𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘺 ✎ 𝘚𝘶𝘣𝘫𝘦𝘤𝘵: 𝘏𝘦𝘥𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘜𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘮 . ♫ 𝘚𝘰𝘯𝘨: 𝘐 (𝘱𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘰) ♫ 𝘈𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘴𝘵: 𝘚𝘮𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯𝘨 (𝘰𝘯 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘛𝘶𝘣𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘊𝘭𝘰𝘶𝘥) . . . #study #philosophy #studywithme #studywithlupe #kireistudies #phil #hedonisticutilitarianism #hedonism #utilitarianism #philosophystudy #studyphilosophy #college #collegestudy #collegestudywithme #notes #notetaking

Meet Evan! 🙋🏻‍♂️ He is a philosopher who was inspired to explore veganism after reading the ethical considerations of animal agriculture in Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation. Since then he has become passionate about the environmental and health benefits of eating more plants as well! Want to eat more plants for ethical, environmental, or health reasons?

The best thing I've read today...The higher pleasures do require cultivation, education and sensibility...In short run, a person may prefer things that gives immediate pleasure, but once they train, cultivate and educate themselves, they will certainly appreciate higher pleasures over lower pleasures...Like, Going to a museum over going to CCDs... Reading a good book over watching shitty TV shows... Widening horizon of thoughts over confining themselves between minions...Long term virtues over short term gains...Love over hatred...Progress over revenge...Greater good to humanity over localised good, centering themselves... So, culture the Socrates, and not a suicidal fool in yourself!! . . #progressive #morality #liberalism #utilitarianism #philosophical #psychologism

It has come to this. In better news, I am vindicated in having spent more time than I ought this weekend catching up on @nbcthegoodplace. Because without that I would not have understood terms like #consequentialism or #utilitarianism. Which I needed to read this book for my final paper about contested notions of #justice in the field of peace and conflict studies. So in the end watching the show has proven to be the right thing to do. Aka consequentialism is the answer. The question is, should I cite #chidianagonye in the references section of my paper? I mean, he is supposed to have done his PhD here in Brisbane, so.... #doesanythingmatter #moralphilosophy #mybrainisfried @nbcthegoodplace @williamjacksonharper @joemande

❤️❤️❤️❤️ ” The unexamined life is not worth living” - Socrates, Plato’s Apology . “Words do have consequences, and what one generation says but does not really believe, the next generation may believe, and even act upon.” - Peter Singer, Ethics in the Real World . At a point it was understood that philosophy concerned itself with analysist of words and concepts and thus remained neutral if not disinterested in substantial ethical questions. It hasn’t always been like that. If we go back in time there was a man with a beard bothering Athens’ youth and even though barba non facit philosophum (read a beard doesn’t make one a philosopher), he surely was a philosopher and maybe the best known through the ages. . The bearded man’s name was Socrates and he thought that the unexamined life is not worth living. He paid special attention to wisdom and what was the right thing to do. A system of moral principles which could define what was good for individuals and society, an ethic. He didn’t bother much with semantics and dictionary definitions. Instead he wanted to live life with purpose and within proximate truths if not the truth. Peter Singer can’t be said to rock a great beard, but he could be a Socrates 2.400 years later. . In ‘Ethics in the Real World’ with the subtitle 82 brief essays on things that matter, Peter Singer writes with clarity and friendliness about pressing issues like climate change, global poverty, animals’ rights and wealth inequality. Issues are presented in the clearest terms without any confrontational or patronizing language that “woke” people sometimes deploy. . If you really want to learn how to live a better life, this book might actually make a difference. Far from being esoteric or reserved for the elite it serves as a guide for every person who picks it up. Which questions do you want answers to in order to life a better and more examined life? #thegooddiscussion #dklit #boganmeldelse @princetonupress #ethicsintherealworld #petersinger

🔶Utilitarianism: A teleological (outcome-based) moral theory. Focus is on the consequences = outcome of actions. We shall act to maximize total happiness, resp. fulfilled preferences (and lack of suffering) among all sentient beings. The morally relevant feature of an entity is sentience - being able to have hedonistic states of mind, t.i. being able to suffer/to be happy. On animals: Utilitarians, such as Peter Singer, argue that human and many nonhuman animals must be included into the moral circle for all of us are capable of suffering, hence, have preferences, e.g. the preference to not suffer. Such preferences ought to be equally considered when deciding which action is right for the one action is the morally best which brings about the most happiness/fulfilled preferences. => Utilitarianism says: Do good. 🔶Deontology: A duty-based moral theory. Focus is on the process used, e.g. doing social duty, follow strict moral principles / laws, etc. On animals: Animal rights theories acknowledge that animals being subjects-of-a-life (SoL) have lives that matter to them; lives that can be good or bad in their own sense. Therefore, it is any SoL‘s (moral) right to not be treated as mere means to human ends, to be treated with respect, including to not be harmed. AR theories demand abolitionism/animal liberation. => Deontology says: Do right. 🔶Virtue Ethics: A character-based moral theory. Focus is on whether a virtuous person would do the act. We should cultivate the virtues and act in accordance with them. Virtues include compassion, justice, honesty and more. On animals: “I can [not] think of myself as compassionate while I am party to such cruelty than I could think of myself as just if, scrupulously avoiding owning slaves, I still enjoyed the fruits of slave labor“ (Hursthouse). Virtue Ethics says: => Be virtuous. ❗️Obviously, there are fundamental differences which might lead to different results via different ways. ✳️ Yet, there is consensus about the DIRECTION amongst the animal ethicists: Human-animal practice is wrong and must be changed! We must reduce animal suffering, resp. establish animal rights, resp. be virtuous people.

Hello hello hello..... I'm still alive and kicking, but I've been super busy as of late between moving, working, and attending university. I haven't been reading mich outside of school, so I also haven't had anything to post. Hopefully that will change soon, and (fingers crossed) I can get back to posting here In the meantime, here's a look at what I'm reading for class now . #bookstagram #books #utilitarianism #johnstuartmill

Do I write out of love to men? No, I write because I want to procure for my thoughts an existence in the world; and, even if I foresaw that these thoughts would deprive you of your rest and your peace, even if I saw the bloodiest wars and the fall of many generations springing up from this seed of thought — I would nevertheless scatter it. Do with it what you will and can, that is your affair and does not trouble me. You will perhaps have only trouble, combat, and death from it, very few will draw joy from it. #theegoandhisown #maxstirner #nihilism #existentialism #postmodernism #germanphilosophy #nominalism #individualism #authority #utilitarianism #humanism #anarchism #socialism #egoism #religion #book #library #literosophy_cinemusic

Love this sentiment! It’s so vital we buy things made responsibly & lovingly: the only time when *less is def NOT more* Regram • @thelinenworks It is always a delight to own something that has been made-to-order, especially in these days where most things we use daily seem mass-produced. The time-honoured practice of monogramming linens turn utilitarian household linens into precious keepsakes that will be cherished for years to come. Initials, memorable dates and newborn names are some of our most popular choices. As this is handmade, they do take about 14 days to arrive; but it’s a one of a kind which will make it all worth waiting for. Monogramming up to 15 characters costs £25 #thelinenworks #monogramming #uniquegifts #utilitarianism #personalised

It’s probably weird to post a pic of the contents of one’s fridge, but I’m so stoked about how my minimalism/utilitarianism is coming along. My prep days used to take foreverrrr and then a bunch of stuff would go to waste. I’ve finally mastered the art of batch cooking and understanding what the ratio of eating at home vs eating out really looks like. So much less mess and less waste and this lifestyle ultimate allows me to own less Tupperware and kitchen gadgets too. Now I only spend about $25 a week on groceries and buy most everything fresh with no packaging. Yay minimalism.

It has been an unequivocal honour to represent the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland to clinch the Irish Medical Organisation Debate Medal! The motion was "THW Enact a Presumed Consent, Or "Opt-out" Model of Organ Donation". I was side opening opposition. "Do not take your organs to Heaven. Heaven knows we need them here." #debate #debaters #rcsi #royalcollegeofsurgeonsireland #presumedconsent #medal #imo #irishmedicalorganisation #medlife #medicalethics #ethics #autonomy #utilitarianism #speech #parliamentarystyle #success #qotd #quoteoftheday #represent
