Knowing the ‘right’ thing to do…

Here’s the video clip we watched in class last week. Post your answers to the question below. You will need to use an alias.

1. Do you think Peter does the ‘right’ thing in the clip. This is not a yes or no question. You will need to highlight the complexities as you see them and explain how they impact your thoughts.

2. Who was Jeremy Bentham? What would he have thought was the right thing to do? Why?

3. Do you think he gives us a solution to thinking about life decisions? Why/ Why Not? Again this will be a thoughtful and extended answer. You will probably need to think through several real life situations as ‘thought-experiments’ to help you decide on this.
