|Keywords:||suffering;well-being;moral reasoning;pain;Ethics and Political Philosophy;Ethics and Political Philosophy|
|Abstract:||<p><em>Suffering is often awarded a prominent p</em><em>lace in many conceptions of ethics as a consideration worthy of moral concern. This is done however, without a thorough understanding of what suffering is, or why suffering is morally significant, as full accounts of the nature and moral significance of suffering are few and far between. Our attention in this project is on elucidating what suffering is, and why it is morally significant, as well as understanding suffering’s complex relationship to well-being. Additionally, we also utilize what has been established about suffering to begin to understand and outline what the ramifications of treating suffering as a separate consideration might be for morality.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em> </em></p> <p><em><br /></em></p>|
