Moral sense theory is as follows in this tip top wiki article. Presumably ?


I was just wondering if anyone says anything similar about the particular value of a meaningful life?

E.g. if a meaningful life were coherent life choices, that something can only be shown to be so through instinctual / emotional / intuitive faculties.

I ask because I MAY be of the opinion that we can't prove a choice is rationally coherent, anyway .

Peace :)

  • If a meaningful life is a good life, then perhaps it lies in the scope of this theory – Quentin Ruyant Nov 26 '14 at 18:29
  • why close this question, what is wrong with you people are you simply trolling ? – user6917 Nov 28 '14 at 3:38
  • I think you can make your question more clear... for example, the question title would be better as an actual question (e.g.: "Must the meaning of life be rationally coherent?"). – James Kingsbery Dec 1 '14 at 16:40
  • I don't have time for a full answer, but you can find examples on either side. Cicero and Descartes come to mind as standard examples of the meaning of life falling straight from logic. Many philosophers reject the notion of a specific "meaning of life" beyond what the individual decides. – James Kingsbery Dec 1 '14 at 16:42
