Altruism: The Case for Doing Good

What reasons to we have to be a good person?

Sep 2, 2019

This episode brings the first instalment of a 2-part series on altruism. Today we’ll be asking: what reasons do I have to be a good person? From a moral point of view, do I face any obligations to spend my time helping those in need? And from a self-interested point of view, can I find a sense of meaning and fulfilment in doing so?

In this episode you’ll find provocative thought experiments, interesting ways of making a positive difference to the world, and a lot of Peter Singer! Tune in, and Searching For It will be back on Monday 7 October with an episode on Effective Altruism and the most effective ways of doing good.
