Is willful ignorance acceptable?
This question aims at specific scenarios where the ethically "right" way is controversial. A classic example would be killing a child to save 5 adults or something like it (most likely less extreme). The question for me is, is it acceptable to look at some of these things and knowingly ignore them? Or does this already lead to a more or less incomplete understanding of right or wrong and one's own personality?
First, since we are in a philosophy question and answer site I assume that most of you have a pretty solid understanding of topics which they have thought about and evaluated ethically such as the above mentioned example and way more in your daily topics. I think that this "doing" develops an ethically solid personality.
But for some such questions I can't truthfully tell what I would do and just accept this as it stands. Is such a blank state acceptable or even good and healthy?
Why I personally accept it is mainly because I think that finding answers to some questions is digging around in the extremes of one's personality, which might go a little too far. As for the practical example above, do you really want to know if you would be able to kill a child or let 5 people die?
Should an ethical adult fill all such blanks or accept them with peace of mind?
Off course it is impossible to look at all possible scenarios. This just focuses on questions you actively state to yourself and then willingly don't answer.
