2023 Philosopher Madness: Rounds 1 and 2

This week is one of my favorite weeks of the year.  Agonizing over the brackets, the thrill of watching the games. There is nothing like it.

So I decided to try to bring that same competition and engagement to ethics! While many people think of college basketball and the rivalries (What time is it?), the rivalries in philosophy are even more heated.

So dive in and over the next few weeks let’s determine who is the top philosopher.  There can be only one.

Note: This is for entertainment purposes only. The rankings were done solely by me. I am sure I left some out and people may have issues with my seeding. That’s part of the fun too.

P.S. This is about ethics. Don’t vote multiple times.
