In the blogs today, September 18, 2008:

The question was this: To what extent are we morally responsible for the consequences of our actions, and what does this tell us about utilitarianism?

  • At 4:30,
    • Liz states the problem with utiltiarianism and intentions quite clearly in her second paragraph
    • Nicole says that our responsibility stops when another person steps in
    • Ethan generalizes somewhat on this idea
    • Rich maintains that responsibility is very limited
  • At 6:30,
    • Aja holds a strongly utilitarian position
    • Jeff focuses on immediate consequences
    • Jeffersson makes a nice analogy with kitchen appliances
