Practical application a complete moral stance I’ve been reading your writings for a few months now, but I’m still quite confused about how your conception of meaningness affects your moral choices. I suspect it affects the disposition with which you make this choices more than the actual choices, is that correct? I know you don’t like thought experiments, but I really feel like I need a few practical examples in order to better understand what you’re getting at. Say for example that I’ve got to choose a career. through my job I want to help others, but I also want to help animals. I believe that with my skills I can help animals much more than I can help people, but on the other end I feel much more strongly attracted to helping people (although I think it’s of equal or lesser importance than helping animals), and helping humans is more rewarding. What shoul I choose according to you? Another example: I want to have a son, and having a child is a beautiful rewarding thing that increases piety sensibility et cetera, and also raising a kid well is clearly very beneficial to him and to the society he will live in. On the other hand raising a child will take a lot of time and money from me that could have been spent saving several lives, and increasing the population will worsen the environmental crisis. What would you do? Or are the problems I’m presenting badly framed (I realize I’m adopting a very consequentialist viewpoint)? If so, what would your thought process be when confronted with these choices? Thank you for your attention and your great websites!
