What does materialism has to do with morality? Materialism says that only the material world exist - that is all. Any morality would be something
additional to the philosophy of materialism..
I believe that we could fight for days on what Materialism is and what it isn't.
The fact is that there is no unique definition.
Materialism says that only the material world exist
And that means that anything beyond it doesn't exist. That is simple.
Like Muslims say "Allah is the only god" , which means there is no god but allah.
That is what the word "only" is is doing in the sentence.
Materialism is no evolving way of thinking. Eastern materialism failed decades ago and the western is going to fail soon.
And if Materialism accepts spiritual side, it is not Materialism anymore.
It is the good old religion with another name.
