*This post is a dialogue and consists of two parts. In the* *first part, Bartłomiej Skowron and David Spivak consider what* *mathematics and ethics have in common. Though some will think these* *notions have nothing in common, these authors share the intuition that* *the opposite is true. In particular, they propose that sense-making is* *always good and that mathematics is significantly useful in modern* *sense-making. In the second part, David Corfield responds, pointing out* *the importance of the good life, argues for strengthening cognitive* *science research on well-being by scaffolding it with mathematics and* *category theory in particular.*
