Justice: What's The Right Thing To Do?

Consequentialist vs. Categorical Moral Principles

Quote:
Philosophy teaches us and unsettles us by confronting us with what we already know. There's an irony. The difficulty of this course consists in the fact that it teaches what you already know. It works by taking what we know from familiar unquestioned settings and making it strange.

Philosophy estranges us from the familiar, not by supplying new information, but by inviting and provoking a "new" way of seeing.

But, and here's the risk: Once the familiar turns strange, it's never quite the same again.

Self Knowledge is like lost innocence, however unsettling you find it, it can never be unthought or unknown.
