How good is good enough?

OK… So What Now? is a series of first person investigations into the moral and ethical challenges of leading an examined life. Each episode centers around one dilemma from our modern life, and features interviews with guests who have some stake in that dilemma. The second episode asked “How good is good enough?”

Think about every dollar you’ve given away–to a person begging on the street, to a cause you see advertised on television– how much good did that money do? How much did you think about your decision? This episode of OK… So What Now? offers three perspectives on generosity and the choices we make. Two of those perspectives come from Science of Generosity researchers Mark Ottoni-Wilhelm and Felix Warneken.
