Public Morality in the Ages of Caesar and Trump

Ideas

What is our common ground -- and common benefit -- when everyone in society has their own strong set of opinions? How do leaders lead or represent us? This episode takes a philosophical look at the interaction between morality and the public good, with Shakespeare's Julius Caesar as a lens into how private and public values can both unite and divide us. Recorded on stage at Ontario's Stratford Festival, Paul Kennedy hosts a discussion featuring philosopher Mark Kingwell, political theorist Emma Planinc and actor Jonathan Goad.
