A trolley is careering out of control. Up ahead are five workers; on a spur to the right stands a lone individual. You, a bystander, happen to be standing next to a switch that could divert the trolley, which would save the five, but sacrifice the one—do you pull it? Or say you’re watching from an overpass. The only way to save the workers is to drop a heavy object in the trolley’s path. And you’re standing next to a really fat man….

This ethical conundrum—based on British philosopher Philippa Foot’s 1967 thought experiment—has inspired decades of lively argument around the world. Now Thomas Cathcart, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, brings his sharp intelligence, quirky humor, and gift for popularizing serious ideas to “the trolley problem.” Framing the issue as a possible crime that is to be tried in the Court of Public Opinion, Cathcart explores philosophy and ethics, intuition and logic. Along the way he makes connections to the Utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham, Kant’s limits of reason, St. Thomas Aquinas’s fascinating Principle of Double Effect, and more.

Read with an open mind, this provocative book will challenge your deepest held notions of right and wrong. Would you divert the trolley? Kill one to save five? Would you throw the fat man off the bridge? Đặt sách ngoại văn The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Mua sách ngoại văn The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Đọc sách ngoại văn The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Sách tiếng Anh The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Tải về The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Review sách The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Review phim The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Đánh giá The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Mua The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum giá rẻ The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Đánh giá The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Tác giả The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Tiki The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Fahasa The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Shopee The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Amazon The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Download PDF The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Download epub The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Ebook The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Tiếng Việt The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Sách ngoại văn The Trolley Problem, Or Would You Throw The Fat Man Off The Bridge?: A Philosophical Conundrum Đọc sách Thomas Cathcart Mua sách Thomas Cathcart Review sách Thomas Cathcart

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.
