The Forking Trolley An Ethical Journey to the Good Place from James M Russell is a fun light read with a mostly fair introduction to Man, Son of Man ethics Let me say that prior to reading this I had not watched The Good Place so most of the comments that would have gotten a chuckle from viewers were lost on me I have since seen severalpisodes and have Alter Ego enjoyed them I am going to assume that the areasthinkers that were glossed over or not summed up very accurately were done so to better fit with the TV show tie in gimmick I did get a little tired of the repeated comments aboutthicsmoral philosophy professors being disliked Granted my xperience with them only cover three universities but at all three those professors were well liked and one was downright popular The classes were fun and ngaging Maybe his Uncommon Wisdom experiences were different But to repeat such a comment so often just made me uestion his ability to be perceptiveither of those around him or of his own biasesNow that the complaints are out of the way I found the book largely a fun read and to the Unseen City extent the topics were investigated functionally adeuate For those who might watch the show but miss some of the ideas behind the banter I think this is a wonderful book Hopefully the big takeaway for readers is that these various schools of thought are meant to serve as guidelines Even Singer in his lectures acknowledges that no one stance can be followed 100% of the timeven his seemingly strict stance We find ways of utilizing whatever approach works best for a given situation I am not referring to situational or axiological Art ethics here just that the approaches are almost best considered as a cafeteria style offering The good part is that we can do good by doing so The danger is that if we aren t careful we can find ways to justify doing some awful thingsOne of the actualthics professors who helps with the show Todd May recently wrote a book that highlights vari.
