The main question driving my philosophical research is how to make my decisions – a question which each of us faces. Most people are intuitively drawn towards certain kinds of actions and repelled by others. But should we trust our intuitions? A common view among contemporary philosophers is that there is no alternative to placing a significant amount of trust in substantive ethical intuitions. I challenge this position by examining whether we can find guidance for our decision-making via philosophical arguments relying on more minimal starting points. At the same time I take seriously alternative positions, such as moral particularism, and investigate the strongest arguments for such views.
