What does it mean to be a human being? Answering the big questions starts with paying attention to the little things like how we use technology, says theologian and scholar Dr. David Turnbloom. It’s the little things that create a foundation for ethical behavior.
Are we magnifying the good in creation or perpetuating the not so good? Who are you and how are you going to behave in the world? These are some of the questions Dr. Turnbloom and his students grapple with in his courses. In this podcast, we take a look at why a grounding in ethical behavior will have a big impact on a very complex future.
“Things will continue to get more and more complicated, ” Dr. Turnbloom says in this podcast. “You can’t turn on the news or look at Facebook without being inundated with impossible questions… It’s the little things you do on a day to day basis, not these great grand scale actions that make one an ethical person.”
