A333 – week 13 – Preferences and objective values

I’m continuing to use the Christmas break to get a head start on my philosophy studies before the psychology course kicks in and I’m back up to full-time studenting. The week was continuing to look at what values are “rational” to have and aim towards as goals, looking at some alternatives (but not really) to hedonism in preferentism (if I want it, then it must be valuable to me) and objectivism (I will tell you what you should want, it will be valuable to everyone). Some interesting side-roads of the interpretation of people’s preferences in under-developed nations by first world countries and whether preferentism is complicit in social oppression and whether the masses should just be allowed to eat cake.
