We Have Questions: Can Ethics Be Taught?

. . . . . . . .

Speaker: Michael DeWilde, a core Guest Teacher at C3, is the director of the Koeze Business Ethics Initiative in the Seidman College of Business, as well as a full professor in the Management Department at GVSU. He holds an MTS from Harvard University and did his undergraduate work at William James College (GVSU) in Michigan. His research and teaching interests include the impact of social capital on civic and economic well-being, neuroethics, and the use of roleplaying in business pedagogy.

Musicians: Annagail has always defied and stretched genres, equal parts singer/songwriters and rock band. Thinking man’s Americana? Pop for philosophers? Country for the curious? Rock for the recluse? Whatever you call them, Annagail weave heartache and hope for the disillusioned.

Moment of Silence

Reading/Teaching: Michael DeWilde

“Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.”

― Simone Weil, Lectures on Philosophy

“If the various virtues can be taught, not by books or by talking, but by example, then what good is a book, or a talk, on virtue and ethics? Perhaps this: to try to understand what we should do, what we should be, and how we should live, and thereby gauge, at least intellectually, the distance that separates us from these ideals.
A modest enterprise, but nonetheless necessary?”

Paraphrased from André Comte-Sponville’s Un petit traité sur les grandes vertus (A Small Treatise on the Grand Virtues)
