Would You Eat Your Cat?

No, not the book of the same name, written by some twit, but another new interactive activity at the Philosophy Experiments web site.

Would You Eat Your Cat?

This one looks at the way in which we respond to behaviour that many people would consider to be disgusting or repellent or clearly wrong, but where it isn’t obvious that these reactions are rationally justified.

As usual, feedback much appreciated. I do actually make changes to these activities on the basis of the responses I get here (and elsewhere). It’s quite difficult to get all the logic sorted out without the input of other people: I tend to miss stuff, think stuff is obvious when it isn’t, that sort of thing.

Talking of which, I’ve also improved the Euthyphro Dilemma activity. It’s now Aquinas-friendly, which has got to be good, right?

(Apologies if you’ve seen a version of this post before.)
