Mrs. Hutchful

In which situations do our emotions assist/inhibit moral decisions?

Mr. Kamau

What position will you take, push the fat man, and save the five lives, or leave the fat man and let the trolley run over the five people?  What are some of the reasons for your choice?

Mr. Kidane

1.     In the program it says that during the WWII the British fooled the Germans into bombing suburban areas in order to spare Central London. In what ways can we say Churchill acted morally right?  

Mr. Kitching

Hi everyone,
What a fascinating programme! I was struck very particularly by one of the 8-year-old girls interviewed at just after 17 minutes on the first podcast. She said, in response to the “transplant problem”:
“I think that you should do it, but it’s not right, but… it’s right at the same time...”
Listen and think about the situation with which she was presented – I think actually she gave a rather a smart answer. What do you think she was trying to say?
