    1 thought on “The Case of the Speluncean Explorers: Nine New Opinions

    1. An exploration in how law and philosophy interact in extremely difficult circumstances survival cannibalism Not purely abstract see R v Dudley and Stephens Now what I want is a book dealing with The Trolley Problem in depth.

    2. Finally finished reading this book I marked since years ago after watching the famous Harvard open course Justice what is the right thing to do It s a great read to a law layman like me, as intellectually interesting as G del s incompleteness theorem in the philosophy of law Thinking around the case can go directly to questioning why law existed, how it works hand in hand or not with morality issues, and different ways law can be interpreted, exercised, etc.The original case similar to Chinese b [...]

    3. From the perspective of a lay person almost completely unfamiliar with the tangled mess that is jurisprudence, this is a nice introduction to the philosophy of law arguably pop science y, but apparently it s taught to law students, so it does seem to have sufficient credibility.The original five opinions are pretty obsolete and unidimensional except for Tatting but the nine exceptionally detailed updated opinions run the entire gamut of arguments that one can come up with, and then some In short [...]

    4. As expected, not as good as the first five But a good addition nevertheless worth reading Agreed with Justice Bond generally speaking, despite the fact he rescued himself and therefore had no effect.

    5. Ugh nothing like reading about the opinions of some dry Justices, but the concept behind the entire novel was very interesting I found a few opinions that I agreed with completely and found myself angered when the explorers were not let off in both scenarios This was a book that raised some very interesting moral discussions in my Law and Literature class and was very happy to have been introduced to it.

    6. A book to mature our appraoch to opinion formation any opinion The first time you encounter a point of view , each opinion is pursasive how to choose How to approach with an open mind and sort things out These are good.

    7. In this, you will be convinced by judge A for his impeccable reasoning and turn the page, only to find yourself convinced by judge B that judge A was talking bullshit.
