Applied ethics in Internet research. Trondheim: Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Walzer, M. (1994). Thick and thin: Moral arguments at home and abroad. Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press. iv Acknowledgments We are living in an interconnected world, and this interconnectivity can hardly be more evident than in this particular book. To begin with, this interconnectivity makes our volume possible; while most of us have never met one another in person, everyone involved with the production of this book—the authors who live in faraway places, the publisher, the two editors who live in separate continents—all communicate with one another almost seamlessly through the wonders of information and communication technologies.

This is] a relational term, relative to the interests … of some subject” (p. 291). Nevertheless, Wetlesen states that having final value in virtue of mere relational properties does not add up to moral status. Wetlesen agrees that certain objects can have final value by virtue of their relational properties but still reserves moral status for intrinsic final value. Presumably, the reason is that final value based on mere relational properties is derived from some other source; hence, the value is not objective and noncontingent, and our duties are not direct.

Second, the ascription of moral status to all living entities and none whatsoever to nonliving entities runs into a similar problem with marginal cases. Wetlesen argues that the conation found in all life is an ethically relevant property due to its similarity with the conscious experience of a will to live, which is central to our practical identities. This seems to be an unnecessary and inconsistent favoring of biological life. 7 My conscious experience of being a striving individual with a will to live, which rightly belongs to my practical identity, is qualitatively different from that of a microorganism.
