My Brother's - And My Sister's - Keeper, Part 1
Anything you can do to make someone's life better, you must do. Right? But how much do you owe to other people, and who should you help: your family, your neighbours, strangers in far-away-countries? In this two-part series, philosophers Michael Blake, Simone Chambers and Arthur Ripstein, along with IDEAS producer Sara Wolch, consider the limits and the extent of our obligations to others, as individuals and as a society.
Part 2 airs Wednesday, May 8.
Participants in the show:
Michael Blake, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Washington.
Simone Chambers, Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto.
Arthur Ripstein, Professor of Law & Philosophy at the University of Toronto.
