Part one :there are many different conceptions of the meaning of life, summarize the conception that you think is most plausible and illustrate it with one of your long term goals.Make sure that the difference between your conception of the meaning of life and your long term goal is clear (the latter is merely an example of the former), that they are both specific – avoid vague notions like ‘happiness’, ‘fulfillment’, or ‘doing something with my life’ as well as indeterminate ones like ‘subjective meaning’, ‘authenticity’, and ‘nihilism’ – and are both cohesive– focus on one conception and one goal, not several different ones.Then explain in detail why you think this conception of the meaning of life is more plausible than either utilitarianism (‘maximize pleasure and minimize pain for everyone in the long term’) or Kantian ethics (‘promote rationality and autonomy’).Make sure to consider and respond to at least one objection to your conception of the meaning of life, e.g., that it lacks intrinsic value; doesn’t provide us with enough guidance; or tells us to do things that are controversial.Part 2:think up and defend an original and radical social change that you believe would significantly improve our society.For example, imagine that you had a magic wand that enabled you to make any social change you wanted.However, it shouldn’t involve currently nonexistent technologies.Stick to a single change, though it should be a far reaching one.Clearly explain what the change is and how it would alter society.Then defend your proposed change by doing a detailed ‘cost-benefit analysis’, carefully considering both the positive and negative consequences of your proposal (e.g., the financial expenses it would require) and explaining why you think that the positive consequences will outweigh the negative ones.Make sure not to short-change your cost-benefit analysis, for this part of the blog will make up a significant portion of your grade.
