Moral Dilemma and 'Us'

Posted on January 7, 2014 at 10:33am 0 Comments

Although, it's true some thinkers in diverse eras and areas have preferred divergent approaches to the 'moral dilemma' of our world I.e. The deontological, consequentalist and virtue-ethics approaches as supposed panaceas to that effect. Yet, has anyone been dispassionate and impassioned enough to behold/construe these "remedies" as dilemma in themselves??

To be, or not to be, that is the question!

It’s a fine state of affairs in Syria, and the clock is striking thirteen. Authoritarianism stands intransigent to the whims and agitations of the people. And the frightening turnout of events in that country is by no means “funny ha ha”.

'To be or not to be, that is the question'.

An Essay On Moral Leaderhip

Posted on December 25, 2013 at 12:30am 4 Comments

While the word "Morality" on the other hand, inherently imply the system or code that… Continue

O boy!

I feel mentally perplexed given the surge of political tension emanating from the prospective 2015 Nigeria's presidential election. One definitely wouldn't need a new pair of eyes to behold the handwriting on the wall that 2015 is to all intent and purpose doom-laden.



It's inevitably another "tug of extermination" between our Nigerian political rapscallions who have and are are yet constituting themselves into two titanic politica juggernauts, hell-bent on employing all… Continue

The Crack-Up: Dwight Eisenhower & the Road Trip that Changed America, with Brian C. Black

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
