Irrelevance Logic

I’ve been teaching Sarah Williams Holtman’s “Kant, Ideal Theory, and the Justice of Exclusionary Zoning” in my applied ethics class. At one point, the discussion turns to norms of privacy. I address a question to the Felician-Franciscan sister observing the class this semester.

Khawaja: Sister, are there distinctive norms of privacy in the convent?

Random student, from out of nowhere: No, there’s no privacy. My sister’s always in my room, and I’m like, girl get out, yo! But she never listens.
