ETHICS IN A DEMOCRACY
The first podcast in the series poses the question of the true nature of democracy, claiming that political, historical, and anthropological approaches fail to reach the core of the issue. A philosophical approach is required to get to the essence of democracy. If we are to avoid relativism and subjectivism, the ethical principles that ground genuine democracy must be universal rather than local. Some of the great philosophers of all time contribute to this inquiry, including the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Zi.
