Ethical issues made easy

I’ve spent several hours over the last few weeks talking to kids about whether it’s OK to tell a lie. So I was interested to have my Senior Ethical Correspondent Marta W send me a link to a series of videos on ethical issues, the first one of which deals with Kant’s views on lying.

The videos produced by the BBC are short and prettily presented summaries of some classic ethical conundrums. It’s a shame that in the context of teaching with Primary Ethics they can be used, but they’re worth looking at and having a think about anyway.

(It’s also worth noting that there are a bunch of other similar videos on other topics, for example this one on the Antikythera Mechanism.)
