Joshua Hochschild on Technology, Ethics, and Religion

Joshua Hochschild is a professor of Philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s University. His primary area of specialization is medieval logic and metaphysics. He has published and lectured on a variety of topics in the history of philosophy, ethics, and education.

In this episode we discuss his book A Mind at Peace: Reclaiming an Ordered Soul in the Age of Distraction, the effects of technology on our consciousness, how to live a moral life when much of our technology/culture encourages us to do otherwise, the role meditative practices, prayer, and rituals play in shaping both our minds and our morals, as well as different religious conceptions of God, humanity, law, and the moral life.
