Should the world perish that justice be done?
The two quotations that follow are from the essay "Some Questions of Moral Philosophy":
Before we get to the second quote, a few questions about the first:Do you think that's an accurate description of the traditional relationship between life and morality? Or is morality ultimately concerned with the continuation and survival of life?
Do you think it would be better to establish a morality that was premised on life as the highest good?
Some more questions:
If Arendt is right, and always acting so as to support life ultimately negates morality altogether, are we better off without morality?
How would you answer "the old Latin question?"
Do you agree with Kant that a life without justice is meaningless?
