Default Re: Fun with ethics

I will have to get back to you on this, even though I've done it in ethics class.

My brother is an engineer, and it I love the difference between how my philosophy class responded and his engineering class. We of course took up the dilemma in all seriousness and debated all the different theories and their implications... the engineers didn't get past the first scenario - their answer was "jam the switch in the middle and save everyone."
