After describing how moral philosophers have expended reams of paper debating trolley problems, Hallq concludes: "The confusions of the man on the street [who couldn’t give a coherent rationale for his responses] don’t seem so bad, in comparison." But that strikes me as precisely backwards, for familiar Socratic reasons. The moral thinking of the folk is so deeply and thoroughly confused that they don't even realize how confused they are. When moral philosophers start sifting through the mess, identifying and modifying points of incoherence, they are becoming less, not more, confused.
Granted, doing philosophy may (at least at first) make one feel more confused, because one's previously implicit confusions are brought to the surface and made explicit. But the confusion was there all along, even prior to your becoming aware of it.
