Seize the Moment Podcast

Jun 19, 2022

On episode 135, we welcome philosopher Christian Miller to discuss the importance of honesty, why people prefer that virtue in relationships over others, the replication crisis in psychology and why it doesn’t necessarily mean that researchers were dishonest, honesty as a seldom researched construct, being honest for the wrong reasons and what the right ones are, utilizing research-backed methods to encourage honesty, self-deception and how it precludes honest behavior, personal benefits from honesty, honesty as an evolved trait and how it may foster connection, and bridging the is and ought gap in philosophy by asking if research can provide us with evidence that being more honest helps create a better society.

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.”
