Seize the Moment Podcast

Jan 2, 2022

On episode 114, we welcome philosopher Christian Miller to discuss the nuances of moral character; why most people aren’t fully good or fully bad; how their ethical choices fluctuate in various situations and sometimes because of minor environmental influences; the famous Stanley Milgram experiment and the more obscure versions of it, which highlight the brighter sides of human nature; the roles emotions play in influencing our moral decisions; why human nature isn’t hopeless and the ways with which we can make ourselves better people; and the importance of role models in fostering character development.

Christian Miller is the A. C. Reid Professor of Philosophy at Wake Forest University, science contributor at Forbes, and Past Director of the Character Project, which researched moral character from the perspectives of psychology, philosophy, and theology.  He is the author of “The Character Gap: How Good Are We?” and “Honesty: The Philosophy and Psychology of a Neglected Virtue.”
