The below link is the full video recording of a class that Brian Moen (Philosophy PhD student at B.U. and friend) and I recorded for the undergraduate medical ethics class he is teaching at Boston University this Summer.
This was really a lot of fun! We create a framework for choosing the best strategy based on a utilitarian framework. Utilitarianism being maximizing the most good for the most people. Here are the slides in pictures with captions but watching the video is better for the discussion we had.
Bmo and I then get into a discussion about people’s rights to not wear masks, fake news, and how to figure out what the truth is during the pandemic.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
