Moral First Aid (Or Lack Thereof) - Monty Python Style

This Monty Python sketch depicting Philosophers playing soccer is a nice demonstration of Dennett's contention that "... Philosophers have been content to ignore the practical problems of real-time decision making..." (p. 496) It's a favorite of mine. Enjoy!  http://www.spike.com/video-clips/cs1vwr/monty-python-the-16-ton-megaset-philosophers-soccer

The Monty Python philosophers

The Monty Python philosophers song.  Not entirely relevant, perhaps, but I thought it would go nicely with the philosopher soccer vid.
