Food for thought: On the #Eurocentrism and #racism of #European #philosophical thinking.

Thanks to Gaza, European philosophy has been exposed as ethically bankrupt

I’m more years post-grad school than I want to count & have long criticized my specialty, #economics.

Until this moment, I did not see that my heartburn rests in #philosophical discord.

“effective altruists try to reduce these enormously complex goals into ‘impartial’, quantitative equations.” @molly0xfff via @dangillmor

That also describes the economics “rational man” illusion.

Economics branched from philosophy. In the US, it is utilitarianism masquerading as a soundbite, “free markets.”

The problem with removing the messy, squishy, human part of decisionmaking is you can end up with an ideology like effective altruism: one that allows a person to justify almost any course of action in the supposed pursuit of maximizing their effectiveness.

Thank you for spelling out the argument.

What is the principle counter argument because I can't think of one at the moment.
