GenEth
A General Ethical Dilemma Analyzer

GenEth enables the analysis of ethical dilemmas of a particular type, or types, and the discovery of a decision principle to resolve them that is consistent with information gleaned from them. 


The software was developed using Allegro Common Lisp by Michael and Susan Leigh Anderson with support from their respective universities (University of Hartford and University of Connecticut) and from the National Science Foundation under grants numbers IIS-0500133 and IIS-1151305.
