Why the Family Matters – with Harry Brighouse

Air Date:
Heard On University Of The Air

One of the greatest joys in life can be our children. But what rights do parents have over their children, and what fundamental rights do children have independently from their parents? Is it justified to feel a greater sense of duty toward one’s own child than toward other children? The arguments may surprise you, as UW-Madison Professor of Philosophy and Education Policy Harry Brighouse joins us in an examination of the moral foundations of the family.
