Discussion article for the meetup : Urbana Champaign: Metaethics, Normative Ethics, Applied Ethics

WHEN: 06 October 2013 02:00:00PM (-0500)

WHERE: 1308 W Green St Urbana, IL 61801 ‎ 173 ft SE

This will be held at the same benches as the Löbstacle meetup, here: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=40.111220,+-88.227363

Topics we might discuss: What is the correct metaethics? (Or what is a useful metaethics)? Moral realism, moral antirealism, Eliezer Yudkowsky's metaethics. Population ethics: the repugnant conclusion, average vs aggregate utilitarianism, spheres of infinite utility How to do good in the world: effective altruism, how can you pick the best charity?

If we get bored of that, I will have games as a backup.
