Moral dilemma of self-driving cars: Which lives to save in a crash

This unit revisits the value of care covered earlier in cycle 1 and introduces empathy and the values of kindness and generosity as key components of an ethical life. The unit seeks to help students internalise the idea that at the heart of morality is a concern about something or someone other than themselves, their own desires and interests. This concern is expressed through care for and empathy with other people, including putting empathy into practice in students’ everyday lives. The underlying premise in this unit is that nurturing empathy is likely to increase a
person’s capacity for care and increase their motivation to act kindly and generously towards others. Students undertake learning activities to practise cognitive empathy or perspective taking to develop their understanding of how other people perceive a given situation, and how other people’s perceptions might differ from their own. They also
engage in learning activities to grow their capacity for emotional empathy – the ability to ‘feel with’ others and to understand what might trigger other people to feel, for example, happiness or sadness.

This hesitation can largely be put down to the fact that whistleblowing on doping presents a true moral dilemma – with two equally valid and demanding moral options. As an athlete, do you report doping behaviour to protect the integrity of sport, or keep quiet to protect the individual’s career, reputation and well-being?
