I am pleased to note that three USU philosophy students made the Intercollegiate Studies Institute Leadership Class of 2017: Millie Tullis, Jonathon Toronto, and David Bradley Zynda. To have 3 USU students in the class of 150 national student leaders is pretty impressive, especially when one sees the list of students and institutions (a great number of them are from Ivies, Stanford, U Chicago, and top flight private liberal arts colleges).
The engaging Michael Stevens runs a psychological experiment – and the video is as instructive about the ethics of running psychological experiments as it is about human responses to moral dilemmas. An excellent documentary!
