Alcohol and trolleys don’t mix. Unless you’re at a pub, blitzed, and ready to talk about philosophy with anyone willing to listen. Drinking isn’t required, but it does make discussing utilitarianism more entertaining.
Modern utilitarianism deals with how to maximize flourishing and minimize suffering for all affected individuals. Here, the outcome is the most important thing. So, how do you determine the right thing to do?
In his latest presentation, Full-Stack Developer Thomas Morris explores one of his favorite topics: moral conundrums. Join him as he searches for a systematic way of agreeing what’s right and wrong. And don’t forget to tip your bartender.
A Texas native, Tom has been living in Prague since 2018. He originally started as a Rails developer, but now lives in the full-stack universe, preferring TypeScript on the frontend. Outside of work he occupies his time thinking about what it means to be human and how to slow down in an increasingly connected world. He also enjoys houseplants, refactoring, and a good cup of coffee.
