New York Times’ “Ethicist”, a Suggestion for You

Ethicist—Advice on life’s trickiest situations and moral dilemmas from the philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah. Sign up for the Ethicist newsletter, for Times subscribers only.

   This is what the New York Times announces about its ethic column.
   Here an overview: https://www.nytimes.com/column/the-ethicist . Here an example https://www.nytimes.com/2024/03/27/magazine/stranger-groceries-gift-ethics.html . You may not be able to open it directly, let me know.

   I here (in Bonn) have a digital subscription to the New York Times, NYT. I pay €2 every 4 weeks for: “Unlimited digital access to everything we have to offer - News, plus Games, Cooking, Audio, Wirecutter and The Athletic”. So it’s cheap, at least for the moment. I think the NYT ist the fastest and best source of news. (For Europe I read the NZZ.) 

Incidentally. As an active (but not all believing) Catholic I regret that our church has given up moral support, at least as seen by Rome. With the stringent order “sex only when you wish a child” the Catholic church has given up making any sense nowadays. Self-disqualifying. The endless cathechism promulgated 1992, see https://www.vatican.va/archive/compendium_ccc/documents/archive_2005_compendium-ccc_en.html and mainly https://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_INDEX.HTM , is at best history, and of little use practically. A shame, I’d say.

PS. The NYT has other fine columns, like science and fashion. Here another example: https://www.nytimes.com/2024/04/29/style/cargo-pants.html
