"I'm teaching a moral psychology class this semester, and we spent part of the first day discussing the trolley problem, which is a frequently used ethical dilemma in discussions of morality. When I returned home that night and was playing trains with my son, I thought it would be interesting to see his response to the trolley problem. I recorded his response so that I could share and discuss it with my class, given especially that we also will be discussing moral development from birth onward."

The little boy's solution was totally unexpected, and made me laugh out loud. Thanks. I just hope, though, that if an adult were to be confronted by this problem the result would be less -- well-- bloody.ReplyDelete
Should have thrown dad on the tracks in front of it, called him a "fat guy" and walked away.ReplyDelete
Haha! Not what I was expecting at all!ReplyDelete
