Hi everyone,

Just to let you know that I've posted a new Philosophy discussion session on the Wiki, for Thursday 27th September from 7-8pm.
The topic is "How should we make our ethical choices?". I hope that this will allow us to discuss what criteria we are really weighing up when we respond to ethical dilemmas, particularly life-or-death situations such as war, euthanasia and capital punishment. I know some of these areas have been touched upon previously, but the idea of this session is to consider the reasoning behind our general moral principles, and whether there are inconsistencies in the way we apply these principles to different issues.
For more info please have a look at the Schome Park events page on the Wiki, and hopefully see you there.
Hopefully my computer won't die half way through this one...

I'm guessing you meant 'what is euthanasia'?

Euthanasia is referred to in other contexts as 'mercy killing' or 'assisted suicide'.

To make a hotlink, you can write [ url=www.example.com]example[/url] (without the space). I believe there are some good tutorials on the wiki as well...
