Fun For the Whole Family

I like many of you perhaps, hate taking stupid online quizzes. But when you can take a not so stupid one, and help out fellow researchers it is worth a few moments of your time. I can say I took the few moments it took to take this quiz and I do not at all feel as if I want a refund on my time. I can’t say much more without spoiling it, as it is a research project, save to say the questions are about a series of moral dilemmas.

Eric Schwitzgebel (a philosopher at U.C. Riverside) and Fiery Cushman (a psychologist at Harvard) have designed a “Moral Sense Test” that asks respondents for their takes on various moral dilemmas. They’re looking to compare the responses of philosophers and non-philosophers, so they’ve asked me to post a link to their test from this blog. They say that people who have taken other versions of this test have found it interesting to ponder the moral dilemmas they ask about. The test should take about 15-20 minutes and can be found at
