"Lec 26 - Suicide, Part III: The morality of suicide and course conclusion" Death (PHIL 176) The lecture begins by examining the consequences a suicide has on both the person committing it and those around this person. The question is raised, however, whether this factor is the only that counts morally, as utilitarians claim, or whether other factors matter morally as well, as deontologists claim. The moral relevance of a deontological prohibition against harming the innocent is considered. A concluding summary of the course is offered. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
