James Wilson


Are thought experiments the best way of doing practical ethics? Not according to James Wilson. He thinks we need the rich detail of real cases or complex imaginary cases not a simplified version of reality to make sense of the moral problems we face.  We are grateful for support for this episode from the Marc Sanders Foundation and from our supporters on Patreon.
