An App for Moral Decision Making?

In the spirit of the previous post on the attempt to give a quantitative score to a person’s wisdom, it was only inevitable that someone would design an app for helping us make moral decisions.  Though the “app” still requires a good deal of qualitative philosophical thinking on the part of the user, its very methodology invites critical conversation on the nature of our moral decisions, and whether this models (albeit in a simply way) how we should think through issues.

The app, put out by Santa Clara University Center for Applied Ethics, is found here.
