Which is more important in ethical decision-making: emotion or logic?
The question becomes considerably more complex when you throw the word "ethical" in there. I don't believe in morality in the objective sense. I think terms like ethics and morality are culturally and individualistically relative. Furthermore, I do believe logic exists in the objective sense, as a real world representation of the law of probability. Therefore, in a decision where ethics are a consideration, logic is always going to take a back seat to emotion. In order for ethics to even enter the equation in the first place, the decision must include a potential outcome which your emotions find unpalatable, tragic or even abhorrent.
