Speaking of Moral Mindfields, Prospect Magazine has an article on “trolleyology,” the upsurge in moral thought experiments: “Matters of life and death.”
You can test your own moral intuitions on Jeremy Stangroom’s Philosophy Experiments site.
Philosopher Philippa Foot – creator of the Trolley Problem – passed away last week. Her New York Times obituary is here; UK Guardian here.
