Making Mortal Choices: Three Exercises in Moral Casuistry

Synopsis

Bedau demonstrates the usefulness of 'casuistry', or 'the method of cases' in arriving at moral decisions. He examines well-known cases that compel us to consider questions about who ought to survive when not all can. By doing so, we learn something about how we actually reason concerning such life and death situations, as well as about how we ought to reason if we wish both to be consistent and properly respect human life.
