  22. 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?

  29. You only have a few seconds to decide!

  31. 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?

  32. 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.
