I just recorded a podcast titled “Ethical Wisdom for Friends” for this month’s Seeker’s Forum. I talk about a handful of common friendship dilemmas through the lens of the five-part “moral organ” in our brains. This moral organ evolved to sensitize humans to five particular areas of ethical concern: Harm and Care, Justice and Fairness, Loyalty to the In-Group, Authority and Respect, Sacredness and Purity.
Most of us take our friendships for granted and wonder why they often go wrong. Having some basic understanding of how humans make ethical decisions can help us navigate through some of these sensitive issues. I hope this podcast sheds some light on the subject.
