It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a deontological argument!
Coming from the familiar understanding of Superman and his moral dilemma, the Six Pack Philosophy team attempts to explain the philosophical approach to ethics referred to as deontology. Philosophers have long attempted to figure out a one size fits all solution to ethical dilemmas, and have yet to find one. However, in this episode we explore the roots of deontology, the tests to determine if an action is deontologically pure, the arguments against this line of reasoning, and adaptations made to it later.
