Is there a Public Will for the Common Good?

Over the years, I have had many discussions with students about the common good.  What is the common good?  Who dictates what is good?  Who qualifies as common?

Inevitably, the God question comes up.  Is God required to understand the common good?  Can we not simply discover the common good through a normative consensus?

Join us as we explore the meaning of this term; what we are willing to sacrifice for it (if anything); and what that entails.

This interview will no doubt have you asking questions about the balance between individual rights and concern for other people.
