How do we know through the areas of knowledge whether "the end justifies the means"?
Big contribution to science
Something very bad ethicaly
Watson and Crick
Drop something, so it falls
Hume (problem of induction)]
to what extent can we predict the methods used based on the results and vice-versa? - chemistry & physics examples!!!!!!!!
The art of thinking clearly
Chapter 20 never judge a decision by its outcome
remember Leti wrote about it
particles are everywhere and nowhere at the same time--superposition principle
in order for us to know where they are we subject them to different methods (environments
that affects the ends
here is the thing of how the ends justify the methods: the scientists had only the final result of the experiment and had to deduce how the particles ended in X way due to Y method that was applied to them
NaCL + AgNO3 = AgCl + NaNO3
uncertainty -> difficult to predict
Does the amount of mass in the end justifies the amount used in the first place?
If no mass was lost, yes
shock people -> censor worth things
woman got hurt and shocked people with her methods
result: what is the nature of the humanity? good or evil?
they "chose" who lived and who died in exchange of winning the war
"jogo da imitação"
End = result
US rule against
Utilitarianism: utility of information
