Here’s an interesting article that has calculated how much certain values we hold can be translated into a monetary value. It’s in British pounds but we can still see some things having a higher number than others. Perhaps this supports utilitarianism?
I have just completed a visiting position as an assistant professor at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project.
Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.

I’ve created a link where you can see the activities and numbers in an orderly way.
This is interesting but how did they determine the worth of these? If it is by a poll then it is interesting because it would suggest that there is a difference between ‘intellectual pleasures’ and less intellectual ones. It interests me that as much as you here about how people love to go to the movies over reading a book. Still the value of a good book is more then a good movie, interesting.
