Emotivism: The assertion that all individual ethical judgments are purely expressions of one's own attitude intended to change the actions or attitudes of others.From Philographics by Genís Carreras
The best of the philosophical internet featuring Socrates’ love affair with a woman who helped lay the foundations of Western philosophy; the many wonderful uses of the word, ‘dipshit’; digital minimalism or how to de-clutter your technological life; and what America can learn from the fall of the Roman republic.
The best of the philosophical internet featuring the sorrows of ‘workism’ (turning your career into a religion); life’s big question (to tip or not to tip?); an unorthodox approach to battling demons; and a guide to countering science deniers.
Friedrich Nietzsche was most famously concerned with the problem of nihilism. All societies, in his view, rely on implicit value judgments. If the foundations of these are lost, he predicts terrible consequences: widespread apathy or violent, fanatical attempts to reclaim a sense of purpose, or perhaps both.
The best of the philosophical internet featuring another attack by anti-Marxist vandals; why quitting your job to travel the world kinda sucks; the Good-Enough Life; Daniel Dennett on AI; and a new book on how the world thinks.
