Really wish I could get out of work to hit this D:

While I'd self identify as a Preference Utilitarianism (though I'm slowly being seduced into desirism), I really have a soft spot for Aristotelian ethics, broadly in reference to what you ought to do (while utilitarianism has what you ought not to do pretty securely locked down).

Even if people disagree with the speaker, it should be good for discussion... to pick each other's brains. If people aren't shy, we should have a good Q&A session.
