“When you play Bobby, it is not a question of whether you win or lose. It is a question of whether you survive. —BORIS SPASSKY”
David Edmonds, Bobby Fischer Goes to War: How the Soviets Lost the Most Extraordinary Chess Match of All Time

“Bentham maintained that what mattered about an action was how much pleasure it produced and how much pain was avoided. He enjoined us always to act so as to maximize pleasure and minimize pain.”
David Edmonds, Would You Kill the Fat Man?: The Trolley Problem and What Your Answer Tells Us about Right and Wrong

“Would you rather have people be helpful or not? It turns out that having little nice things happen to them is a much better way of making them helpful than spending a huge amount of energy on improving their characters.”5”
David Edmonds, Would You Kill the Fat Man?: The Trolley Problem and What Your Answer Tells Us about Right and Wrong
