What incidents influenced the development of your sense of morality?
I’m sure we could all say parents did this and schools did that and the church did the other thing, and that’s where my sense of morality comes from. That’s not interesting to me. I would like to hear you describe some events in your life that influenced your sense of morality.
I know that for me, the Vietnam war and the civil rights movement and the feminist movement all played roles in developing my sense of fairness. Similarly, a course about Russian history where I had to read the Communist Manifesto helped me develop a sense of humanism that informs my beliefs today about how I should treat others and how we should all treat each other.
Studying Mills in philosophy and learning about game theory—in my reading, I guess—have also been important parts of my moral development. Oddly, I can not think of any personal real life dilemmas that taught me a lesson. It was all from education and historical events. Maybe you have some?
