Ethical Lunch – On Good Behavior
January 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
January’s topic: Manners and Morals
Everyone is invited to bring a lunch and join Hugh Taft-Morales for a discussion of “manners and morals.” The philosopher and politician Edmund Burke defended manners as fundamental to our ethical lives. He claimed that, “Manners are of more importance than laws. Manners are what vex or soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insensible operation, like that of the air we breathe in.” Is there a connection between the erosion of civility and unethical behavior? Come for a short talk and an interactive discussion.
