Why be moral? May we kill one person to save others? Is morality objective? In writings renowned for their creativity, incisiveness, and humour, Philippa Foot (1920-2010) made key contributions to these questions. Foot focused especially on the importance of thinking in terms of virtues and vices. Moral philosophers Sarah Broadie and Alex Voorhoeve critically discuss Foot’s life and ideas.
