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”.

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

Killer Robots, Ethics, & Governance, with Peter Asaro

Peter Asaro, co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, has a simple solution for stopping the future proliferation of killer robots, or lethal autonomous weapons: "Ban them." What are the ethical and logistical risks of this technology? How would it change the nature of warfare? And with the U.S. and other nations currently developing killer robots, what is the state of governance?

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?

Democratic Candidates & Foreign Policy after Iowa, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the (incomplete) results of the Iowa Caucus putting the spotlight on Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, what do we know about their foreign policy platforms? How do they differentiate themselves from Joe Biden? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts and touches on voters' possible perception of Sanders as a "socialist" and how climate change could become an issue in this election.
