The claim that what humans value the most is well being is the foundation for most of The Moral Landscape, however you can easily see how human and animal well-being has had no value for many tribes and cultures.
People sacrifice animals. People kill, mistreat, hurt each other. If we valued well-being over all else, this wouldn’t happen, not so much.
We value our SELF well-being, that much is true, but the well-being of others? Not really, not unless under an imaginary utopia of all people living in harmony or something of the sort.
I’m just confused about this. I’m struggling to understand. Any comments deeply appreciated.
