Von wegen, Elfenbeinturm

Lebensnahes, realistisches Gedankenexperiment aus einem Ethik-Aufsatz:

"Jones and Smith are watching Television. Jones […] swallows a quantity of poison sufficient to kill himself. Smith, who knows the antidote, pulls out a pistol, shoots and kills Jones."

(Daniel Dinello, On Killing And Letting Die, Analysis, xxxi 3, 1971)
