Reflection Question: What do you value?

Is this because you think it is bad (unpleasant) in itself or just neutral (neither desirable nor undesirable)? Or is traveling the world also intrinsically valuable, i.e. valuable for its own sake? If so, why?

Is wisdom something mostly intrinsically valuable and so desired solely for its own sake? Or is wisdom also instrumentally valuable and so desired also for the sake of something else you desire/want? If so, what?

There are two notions of intrinsic value. It can be:
- Valuable in itself
- Valued by someone for its own sake
If something has intrinsic value in the first sense, this means that the universe is somehow a better place for that thing to exist or occur.

Develop a Pro and Con list involving at least three of these theories/models.
