Here are two of the many formulations of Trolley Problems.

1. (by Judith Jarvis Thomson) Edward is the driver of a trolley, whose brakes have just failed. On the track ahead of him are five people; the banks are so steep that they will not be able to get off the track in time. The track has a spur leading off to the right, and Edward can turn the trolley onto it. Unfortunately there is one person on the right-hand track. Edward can turn the trolley, killing the one; or he can refrain from turning the trolley, killing the five. Is it morally permissible for Edward to turn the trolley?

2. (by John Mikhail) Victor is taking his daily walk near the train tracks when he notices that the train that is approaching is out of control. Victor sees what has happened: the driver of the train saw five men walking across the tracks and slammed on the brakes, but the brakes failed and the driver fainted. The train is now rushing toward the five men. It is moving so fast that they will not be able to get off the track in time. Victor is standing next to a switch, which he can throw, that will drop a heavy object into the path of the train, thereby preventing it from killing the men. The heavy object is a man, who is standing on a footbridge over-looking the tracks. Victor can throw the switch, killing him; or he can refrain from doing this, letting the five die. Is it morally permissible for Victor to throw the switch?

Your analysis needs to look at the example of a religious treatise or belief system like an archeologist/historian would, analyzing what it means and how it reflects the culture it comes from.
The paper must include the following sections:
1.  A detailed description of the treatise and what it entails. What “wisdom” does it provide?
2.  Some background of the culture that produced this religious treatise. Your emphasis is on what the artifact tells us about the culture.
3.  A well-argued analysis of what the work tell us about the culture from which it arose using details from it and known information about the culture. Consider what the significance of the work was for the people who first saw/heard/read it.
4.  Finally, discuss how using the guidelines in these teachings can be applied to YOUR life. I will look closely for this at the end of your papers.

Do not use general dictionaries, Wikipedia/Wikis of any kind, or study sources designed for students or teachers in grades K-12.
