Moral Dilemmas

Most of the different daily posts that appear on this blog are organized into so-called “blog series”. For example, there’s a series called moral dilemmas: “dilemma”, from Late Greek dilēmmat-, dilēmma, probably back-formation from Greek dilēmmatos involving two assumptions, from di- + lēmmat-, lēmma assumption; a usually undesirable or unpleasant choice; a dilemma is having to make a choice one does not want to make.
