The Trolley Problem Mysteries

F.M. Kamm and Edited by Eric Rakowski

The Berkeley Tanner Lectures

  • Provides a rigorous introductory treatment of a problem that has become well known both within and beyond the field of philosophy - the Trolley Problem
  • Suggests a solution to the problem and then expands the scope of the solution in new and unexpected ways
  • Offers general proposals as to when we may and may not harm some people to help others as part of a nonconsequentialist ethical theory
  • Includes a sustained debate with Judith Thomson, one of the famed originators of the Trolley Problem, who discusses her most recent views on the problem
