At a table in Levering

Yet again, I am compelled to write while trying to do homework for my philosophy class, The Value of Humanity.

“Not valuableness nor goodness. Pleasantness

They disagree about whether other things besides pleasure have the property of goodness, but goodness is not reason-giving. Well, I do it because it feels good.  You might find it intrinsically good, but what you find intrinsically good that I do all the time is what I find pleasurable all the time. You might think that my cleaning the street as a good thing, and that I do it because it is good, but I do it because it feels good. I’ve also pulled worms apart for the exact same reason. “
