This important work of political and moral philosophy set off a firestorm of criticism upon its publication in the mid-nineteenth century.

A trolley is careering out of control. Up ahead are five workers; on a spur to the right stands a lone individual. You, a bystander, happen to be standing next to a switch that could divert the trolley, which would save the five, but sacrifice the one?do you pull it? Or say you?re watching from an overpass. The only way to save the workers is to... more...

The thought and the findings of moral particularism are extended to contextualism. Moral particularism asserts that reasons for moral actions are not governed by general principles, but by a mixture of situation bound deliberation and values. Particularism was established in the area of moral philosophy and its main results include delimitation... more...
