    Betting on Life: A Pascalian Argument for Seeking to Discover Meaning.Jason Burke Murphy - 2010 - The Monist 93 (1):136-141.
    I seek to step back from the discussion of what it is that confers meaning and concentrate rather on the issue of our reasons to search for meaning. I seek to show that we always have reason to search for meaning, and that this is the case even if we are in a crisis that has rendered us ignorant of what it is that could make the rest of our life worthwhile. Consider: even if presented with an argument that has (...)

    Baby Steps: Basic Income and the Need for Incremental Organizational Development.Jason B. Murphy - 2010 - Basic Income Studies 5 (1):Article 7.
    Antipoverty movements have generated many “little” or “near” basic income guarantee (BIG) proposals. Most theorists discussing BIG posit a full-fledged universal grant that entirely satisfies the core value guiding their theory. Debates are conducted about feasibility, desirability and rival values. This article looks into particular considerations that need to be made when debating a little BIG. If a “status” value, meaning “all or nothing,” is the core value under debate, then a grant falling short of securing this status will need (...)

    Betting on Life: A Pascalian Argument for Seeking to Discover Meaning.Jason Burke Murphy - 2010 - The Monist 93 (1):135-140.
    This paper works with Pascal's Wager with "life has meaning" replacing "God exists" as the proposition that we "bet on". This change shows that we should choose to believe that life is meaningful. This argument does not fall prey to the "many gods" objection. People looking for what makes makes life meaningful do not get many clues from this argument which only justifies the search for meaning.
