An interesting morals quiz, which nonetheless points up one of the things I find utterly maddening about modern academic ethics. If you take this quiz you’ll find a lot of questions asking about death: causing death, preventing death, deciding how many people in a particular situation ought to have to (not) die. Valid mental exercise, but honey please — how often does this come UP for most of us? An ethics that speaks only to the most extreme circumstances is generally not terribly useful for day-to-day navigation. Enjoy the quiz, but don’t hurt your head too thoroughly.
