Philosophy in the story

In this show I talk about how to to use opposing philosophic schools, in this case Deontology vs Utilitarian Ethics, to generate tension between characters and within a character.  I cite a Knit Spirit episode where I talk about these schools, as well as Aristotle’s value ethics.  I cite two books as examples, Infinite Crisis and Stone of Tears, though to appreciate Stone of Tears, you’ll want to read Wizard’s First Rule, which uses the a similar literary trick, and is first in the series.
