I'm placing a decent-size bet on the idea that understanding morality, and following its compass during decisions great and small, will make you better.

Introduction

Moral philosophy is inherently subjective and difficult to quantify. But if we view it as one's search for betterment, it suddenly becomes a lot easier to grasp.

'The Big Three' theories of Western moral philosophy – virtue ethics, deontology, and utilitarianism – all attempt to explain the simple yet complex meaning of 'being good.'

Michael Schur is a television writer, producer, and character actor notorious for his work on The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
