Survey Conclusion: “What Does Good Mean?”

Recently I pointed out that “doing good to others” cannot be the definition of good. Today I will ask:

1) What is the good for others?

2) Does an action need to be good for someone else in order to be good?

First, what is the good for others? The two best candidates are “whatever pleases them” and “whatever leads to their flourishing.”
