A significant number of philosophers seem to assume that the study of thought experiments in light of a series of sketchy examples (and counterexamples) constitutes the best means to advance the philosophical debate. It is not my purpose to deny that thought experiments must play a role in philosophical reflection on moral issues, but to stress the need to complement this methodological resource with other means of understanding that may help us to discern the moral demands we may eventually confront. For, otherwise, one may unkowingly project onto the thought experiment itself a rather elementary comprehension of our moral practices, which may thereby seem confirmed.
