S01E02: Exploring moral landscapes: does life without morality have any value?
About this post
In this month’s episode, we explore why many of us struggle with making moral decisions. Our guest Oscar Bastiaens joins us in a conversation on so-called normative ethics. Oscar is a lecturer at BUas in the media domain for both Creative Business and the Master in Media Innovation. He teaches in the field of creative writing, ethics and semiotics. Hugo, Yoy and Oscar came together at the Hub to talk about philosophy and why it is an underestimated field. The conversation goes into depth on the difference between deontology and consequentialism (say whuat?) and how it is applicable to our personal lives. The talk moves to a discussion on the difference between the truth and truthfulness, and why truthfulness is a moral virtue that is key to having sincere and authentic connection with one another.
