Over at the Experimental Philosophy blog, Jeanine Weekes Schroer and Alexandra Bradner have just posted the results of (what they believe is) the first experimental philosophy study on Thomson’s famous violinist case. They would love some feedback from feminist philosophers. In their study they use care ethics and set out to see if it makes a difference to one’s intuitions about the morality of disconnecting if the sick, needy person connected to you is either a) a famous violinist you don’t know or b)a half sibling. They also alternate the scenarios between the first and third person. You can read their post here and find out their results. What do you think of experimental philosophy as a resource for feminist work in ethics?
