Hypothetical Moral Situations

Journal of Moral Education 4 (3):183-189 (1975)
Abstract: Hypothetical moral situations are often used by teachers and researchers in order to simulate real?life moral problems. This article draws some logical distinctions between different types of moral conflict and the different types of question that can be asked about them. It is suggested that this approach must have serious limitations if it is assumed that there is a direct and straightforward connection between hypothetical and real?life moral judgments, as the former necessarily lack the situational features of the latter
