  • Being "The Ethicist"

    After twelve years writing the popular New York Times magazine column, Mr. Cohen examines how the moral landscape — and his own moral reasoning — changed over that time. As an added plus, he'll discuss how he got, how did, and what he learned from his unusual job. Are those questions real? Did he ever get one wrong? (Or, depending on your perspective, right?)
  • How To Be Good

    If we can reach a rough consensus on right and wrong -- don't lie, don't cheat, don't steal -- why don't we all behave virtuously? Mr. Cohen explores the idea that the answer lies not in our characters but our circumstances, and discuss how to create the kind of communities -- in our neighborhoods, our schools, our businesses -- in which we are likely to behave admirably. During the Q&A, he applies these ideas to the actual ethical problems facing the listeners.
