Longtermism (Philosophy)

The Longtermism (Philosophy) tag is for posts about philosophical matters relevant to longtermism, meaning, roughly, "an ethical view that is particularly concerned with ensuring long-run outcomes go well" (MacAskill). Longtermism is a relatively new idea, and people in the EA movement currently work on a wide range of open questions related to different facets of longtermism. 

For posts about what the long-term future might actually look like, see Long-Term Future. For posts about specific longtermist cause areas, see other tags such as Existential Risk.
