Wyoming Catholic College is using their campus podcast as a platform to discuss topics such as the existence of God. In a recent September podcast episode, Dr. Thaddeus Kozinski examines Iris Murdoch’s essay “The Sovereignty of Good Over Other Concepts.” In this essay, Murdoch makes the claim that “We [humans] are what we seem to be, transient mortal creatures subject to necessity and chance. This is to say that there is, in my view, no god in the traditional sense of that term; and the traditional sense is perhaps the only sense.” During this same essay she also speaks about virtue, morality, love, beauty and the Good.
Dr. Kozinski began his senior ethics course by having students read and discuss Murdoch’s essay. He then used the podcast as a platform to analyze the paradoxical nature of Murdoch’s argument and why this is a valuable conversation to have. To listen to Dr. Kozinski’s rationale, refer to the episode “Good without God? Iris Murdoch’s Moral Vision with Dr. Thaddeus Kozinksi.”
