My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is definitely an interesting way to revise some broad aspects of philosophy, applying it to a problem that had previously been only theorized, but then really happened: if you were in a position to kill a man to save five others without knowing anyone , would you do it? And based on what philosophical argument would you play God?

Questo libro é sicuramente un modo interessante per ripassare a grandi linee alcuni aspetti della filosofia, applicandola ad un problema che prima era stato solo teorizzato, ma poi é accaduto veramente: se vi trovaste nella condizione di uccidere un uomo per salvarne altre cinque senza conoscerne nessuno, lo fareste? E sulla base di quale argomentazione filosofica giochereste a fare Dio?

THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND WORKMAN PUBLISHING COMPANY FOR THE PREVIEW!
