Ethics

Suppose a friend in another class looked over the cases you’ve been studying in this chapter and asserted that many of the dilemmas they presented—the runaway trolley, for example—were so farfetched and unrealistic that they were useless as a guide to eth- ical decision making. Your classmate also raised questions about the ethical frameworks themselves, contending that they were too complicated for most people to apply in ev- eryday situations. Develop an argument responding to these assertions—one expressing agreement, disagreement, or something in between.
