FORGIVENESS AND EXEMPLARS

I join the Examining Ethics Podcast to talk about the ethics of convincing victims to forgive. I claim that when people try to persuade victims to forgive, using moral exemplars alone to convince them is wrong. The episode is based on “Forgiveness, Exemplars, and the Oppressed.

 

 

 

LOVE & POLITICS

I join the Labels of Love Podcast w/ Carrie Jenkins  to talk about love’s place in politics, love’s relationship to anger, and whether love is truly “all we need.”


BELL HOOKS

I join Mark, Seth, and Dylan of the Partially Examined Life to reflect on how hooks’s prescriptions address today’s social problems and how they relate to philosophical views of human nature and freedom. In Part 2, ee talk about black feminist “essentialism” (i.e., a single narrative of oppression) and how that relates to bell hooks’s project of media critique.
