IPPL to host disaster and ethics discussion March 10


In the wake of earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, it is worth taking the time to ask, not simply what one can do to help, but whether any of us should care enough about others to consider helping in the first place. Are we morally obligated to feel for those far away? Should we care for people of different cultures, religions, ethnicities or races? How should we manage our emotions when tragedy seems so distant from our day-to-day lives? Join the Institute for Philosophy in Public Life and visiting fellow David Dillard-Wright at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, in the East Grand Forks Campbell Library, for a discussion about one of the most compelling issues we face today.
