The Trolley Problem
This is a demo I worked up to get you excited about the possibility of a whole season of Reductio. In it, we introduce and think through the Trolley Problem, one of the most accessible and confusing problems in moral philosophy.
In season one, we'll expand this episode to include new thought experiments and fresh takes on the original trolley problem. We'll ask the question: how do we get out of this problem? and: is this really a problem in the first place?

- We talk a lot about often violent ways to die in this episode. It's inherent in the Trolley Problem and related moral dilemmas. Perhaps skip this one while the little ones are around.
