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.

35: Finite Responsibility and Infinite Hope with Joel Reynolds

Caring for other people can be difficult. Whether it’s your own children, your parent, or a friend, care work is emotionally complicated and can be physically messy and uncomfortable. Philosopher Joel Reynolds argues that the entanglements and complexities of care work are ethically significant. This insight came to him through his own work as a caregiver to his grandfather. His scholarship combines care ethics with response ethics through the lens of caregiving, producing “finite responsibility with infinite hope.”
