Good decision, bad decision – a philosophical discussion (Győr, Hungary)
A group of volunteers of New Acropolis in Győr organized a PHILO-Café discussion on the impact of the decisions we make on our lives. The introduction was followed by three 20-minute small group sessions in which one of the three stages of decision making was discussed.
In the first group the discussion focused on how a decision should be prepared and what impact it might have on our environment. In the next one the topic centered on the conditions and criteria we should base our decisions on, as well as on our driving forces and the patterns we can follow. The third group discussed the various aspects of drawing conclusions.
The conclusion of the evening was that, even if we commit mistakes, deliberate decisions can lead us to self-knowledge and to new ideas, both resulting in greater self-control and moral development.
