Building a Moral Foundation: Moral Landscaping Part 1 Episode 72

In this week’s episode your host Paul Schilling looks to set the foundation of a useful and functional moral code. In doing so he discusses the main cornerstones to a useful moral code: the subjective elements, the objective elements, the moral continuum and basic human rights. After listening to this episode you should have a clear understanding of the moral framework Paul sets out and how to use it in your life. This is the first part of a multi part series where Paul will focus on the different elements of a useful moral code. Future episodes will focus on basic human rights, modern day mythology, clarification of the moral code and deep dives where we answer moral questions. The goal of this podcast is to give the listener a solid moral foundation from which to build on and use in real world situations.
