63: Stalemates and Closets (with Sam Harris)
Sam Harris gets back in the VBW ring for another round on moral responsibility, ethical theories, and the grounds for our obligations to other people. Are we at a genuine stalemate when it comes to blame and desert? Is Tamler a closet consequentialist? Is Sam a closet pluralist? Why is Dave such a big Wagner fan? Plus, Twitter shaming: what is it good for? Settle in, get comfortable, pour yourself a drink, you’re in for the long haul on this one.LinksHow One Stupid Tweet Blew Up Justine Sacco's Life [nytimes.co]The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris [samharris.org]Value Pluralism [plato.stanford.edu]Bill Burr vs. Philly [youtube.com]Special Guest: Sam Harris.
