Talking Philosophy

Is it okay to kill Davide painlessly if his organs will save the lives of all the others.

slide13

But something goes wrong!

A terrorist takes you and the students hostage.

slide22

Talking Philosophy

  • Should you kill one person to save the other students?
  • If in this story you should kill one to save three, why not in the previous, medical story?
slide30

Will you turn the trainto the left and killone man?

  • Or leaveit on the right and killthree?
slide31

Talking Philosophy

  • Would you turn the train or leave it on the same track?
  • If you turn the train, shouldn’t you kill the hostage and kill Davide?
  • Isn’t “The right thing to do” the same in every situation?
immanuel kant
Immanuel Kant

"Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law.“

You should always do “the right thing to do” in every single situation. It should always be the same.
