Seize the Moment Podcast

Feb 6, 2022

On episode 119, we welcome political scientist Bonnie Honig to discuss John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice, utilitarianism vs Kantianism and whether the majority has the right to impose their will on the minority, neurodiversity and why peculiarities scare us, the happy grass-counter as a symbol of homosexuality, our incessant drive to be useful and tendency to shame people who aren’t, and the reasons for cultivating a high degree of humility when examining another’s life-choices.

Bonnie Honig is Nancy Duke Lewis Professor of Modern Culture and Media and Political Science at Brown University. Her books include the prizewinning Political Theory and the Displacement of Politics and Emergency Politics, A Feminist Theory of Refusal, Shell Shocked: Feminist Criticism After Trump, and is one of contributing authors prominently featured in Helen De Cruz’s new book in which we are going to discuss today, Philosophy Illustrated: Forty-two Thought Experiments To Broaden Your Mind.
