Hey guys, I got back from Nine Worlds yesterday and I am completely wiped. I am hoping to get YouTube vids of both the papers I gave up at some point, but that point is not today.
However, I was completely floored by how well my Good Place talk was received and am really thankful to everyone who came along and asked really insightful questions. Particular thanks to @mmcasetti who pointed out that the four main Aristotelian Virtues align with what each of the four humans of the Good Place lack:
- Eleanor – Temperance (self-control or moderation)
- Chidi – Practical Wisom (employing both Courage and Justice)
- Jason – Courage (finding the mean between fears and overconfidence)
- Tahani – Justice (giving one’s enemy their due)
Because lots of people have shown interest I’m going to put up the slides for my paper in the meantime, which cover the most salient points of the three philosophical theories I discuss.
(Apologies for the poor quality of the slides, converting from PowerPoint to jpeg was apparently a painful process for them.)
