Mo­ral philosophy

Core TagLast edit: 5 Jun 2021 8:36 UTC by EA Wiki assistant

The moral philosophy tag is very wide-ranging, and can be used alongside more specific tags like EA philosophy, longtermism (philosophy), and moral patienthood.

[Question] Is it suffer­ing or in­vol­un­tary suffer­ing that’s bad, and when is it (in­vol­un­tary) suffer­ing?
