The Drowning Child. Are we able to think whatever we want about right or wrong?
Both deciding to rescue or not to rescue a drowning child could be considered morally right. If moral reasons outweighed prudential reasons then saving the child would be morally right. If prudential reasons outweighed moral reasons then not saving the child would also be morally right. What if saving the child puts your own life in danger? Not knowing how to swim or other dangerous scenarios could favor prudential reasons above moral reasons. A good moral decision can be different depending on who is looking through the moral filter at that time. The decision is judged based on the strength of the moral or prudential reasons that person made.
