Even good people can be better at ethics

The study of ethics is not about telling you what the rules are. Ethics is an exploration of questions about the nature of right and wrong. It’s about developing a thoughtful framework to help you decide what you should do when the answers aren’t clear. The Prindle Institute for Ethics is one of the largest collegiate ethics institutes in the country and is dedicated to encouraging and fostering the study of ethics - in all its facets.

Teaching Children Philosophy and the Prindle Institute

We’ve just launched teachingchildrenphilosophy.org, the new digital home for Thomas Wartenberg’s collection of book modules for children. We’ve been inspired by Tom’s work for years now, and his work with children was part of the inspiration for our yearly Express C.A.M.P.

We examine key ethical issues behind current events and culture.

To B Corp or Not to B Corp with Christopher Marquis

Why would a company ever bother being certified as a “B Corp”? In order to be classified as a B Corporation, a company must undergo an intense certification process that requires companies to balance profit with purpose. So why go to all that trouble? Andy Cullison interviews Christopher Marquis on the show today, who makes the argument that in order to transform capitalism as we know it, businesses must become better.
