English Studies
Abstract
This essay analyzes several characters, events and dilemmas in Drew Karpyshyn's Mass Effect-trilogy using the moral philosophical theory called 'the principle of equal interests', a theory developed by Australian philosohper Peter Singer. The aim of these analyses is to demonstrate that the novels are written in such a way that the dilemmas presented are morally ambigious, and as such the reader of the novels will have to decide for him- or herself which side of a particular argument they want to side with.
