In the second episode of a three part series, we continue discussing the idea of justice with our friend and local author, Tom de Lorenzo.
After following up with a bit of our conversation from last week, Kevin introduces a lifeboat kind of scenario presented by Harvard Law professor, Michael Sandel. The scenario involves a run-away train situation and whether one would kill one person in order to spare the lives of four others.
It’s a deeply complicated philosophical question despite the rather elementary setup and one that is perfect for our blend of discussion.
