The ethics of (secular) humanism is consequentialist 1, arguably epicurean 2 . I believe the ethics of the European Enlightenment could be said epicureanism also.

But what is the ethics of European romanticism?

[I don't know if this question belongs to SE Philosophy or SE Literature]

Under the kind invitation of a member (see comments of this question), I cross-posted this question in SE Philosophy. Here is the link https://philosophy.stackexchange.com/questions/97727/what-is-the-ethical-philosophy-of-european-romanticism]

    This question currently has three close-votes, two of which absurdly claim that the question is "opinion-based". Close voters, please explain your reasoning.

  • @Tsundoku At how many "close" votes will the question be closed?

    A single moderator vote is sufficient to close a question, but I doubt that will happen here.

    I think the question is very reasonable, well-scoped, and entirely within the purview of this site. So I disagree with the close votes. I also think that Philosophy might be an excellent place to cross-post, as it's more likely to find an answer there. If you do post it there, OP, please keep us (ha) posted with a link to that cross-post. Some of us would like to see any answers that those philosopher-kings and/or queens come up with.
