    What does it mean to be good according to a Moral Philosopher?

    In this episode, I talk with Professor of Moral Philosophy, Jeff McMahan.

    Jeff McMahan is Sekyra and White’s Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Oxford. He has written extensively about issues concerning harming, killing, and saving, such as war, abortion, euthanasia and the evaluation of death. He is also the co-editor of the Journal of Controversial Ideas.

    In this conversation, Jeff introduces us to the plurality that exists when it comes to being good according to moral philosophy, as well as sharing his more personal views about moral goodness.

    This is a great interview for the times we're living in as we cover what it means to act morally in times of conflict and uncertainty, and most importantly how we engage and remain morally good when talking with those we disagree with.

    For this Bitesize Episode*, we’re taking some advice from Daoist Monk Yun Rou that “there's always a door number 3 to things”.

    Whenever we find ourselves in a challenging situation or even a conflict of some kind, Monk Yun Rou suggests we look for Door #3 – a third option that is available to us when we feel limited in our choices. 

    This episode is all about how considering the variety of options available to us in any given moment gives us a greater sense of freedom and helps us get more creative in how we can manage and manoeuvre in any circumstance. 

    Enjoy!
