What is good?

Question asked by: jarahreyes

Asked on: 15 Mar 2010

Something is good if it is something that overall promotes human happiness: that's what the utilitarians would probably say.

The problem with the word good is that what is good depends on your beliefs and values so what is good for one may not necessarily be good for another.

Therefore that which is in accordance with how you think someone should behave is good and a contravention is not good.
