We like to think of ourselves, our friends, and our families as decent people. We may not be saints, but we are still honest, relatively kind, and mostly trustworthy. Christian Miller argues that we are badly mistaken in thinking this. Miller uses recent psychological literature to explain what the notion of "character" really means today, and how we can use this new understanding to develop a character better in sync with the kind of people we want to be.
Ed Douglas joins me on the podcast for a discussion on why the life principles that build character are the most important virtues we can instill in the people we have the capacity to directly lead, mentor, and influence.
