When should you forgive? | Brandon Warmke

Brain in a Vat

What is forgiveness, and when is it appropriate? What does it mean to apologize to a group of people, and for that group to forgive? Is forgiveness ever obligatory, or is forgiveness irrational or even immoral?

Interview on Grandstanding with Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke

Get the BookGrandstanding: The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk by Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke https://geni.us/1yLXXcCAbout the BookPeople used to hold out great hope for a public square in which individuals put petty disputes aside and engage in rational discussion about important issues. Unfortunately, public discourse today—especially on the internet—is full of adults behaving like poorly socialized children, acting out to show off for people they want to impress. In short, they engage in moral grandstanding, or the use of moral talk for self-promotion. Drawing from work in psychology, economics, and political science, this book develops an explanation of why people grandstand when they talk about morality and politics. Using the tools of moral philosophy, it argues that grandstanding is not just annoying, but morally bad. And finally, it explains what we can do to encourage people to support a public square worth participating in, by avoiding grandstanding.Among the topics covered:Why people grandstand and self-promoteEffects of polarizing discourse on social mediaWhy moderates check out of discussionsReasons for optimismFollow the AuthorsJustin Tosi on Twitter (@JustinTosi)Brandon Warmke on Twitter (@BrandonWarmke)Stay Connectedibnabeeomar.com Newsletter - What Muslim Leaders Read Sign up for the email list at  and get your copy of the 40 hadith on social media ebookSocial Media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTubeTo support this podcast and related projects, please consider contributing at Patreon. Subscribe to the PodcastApple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/ibnabeeomar_appleGoogle play: http://bit.ly/ibnabeeomar_googleSpotify: http://bit.ly/ibnabeeomar_spotify

The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk (with Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke)

Free Thoughts

We want to be seen as taking the moral high ground not just to make a point, or move a debate forward, but to look a certain way — incensed, or compassionate, or committed to a cause. Another word for this type of discourse is grandstanding. Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke join the show to talk about how grandstanding affects our day to day political discourse.As politics gets more and more polarized, people on both sides of the spectrum move further and further apart when they let grandstanding get in the way of engaging one another.

What Is Moral Grandstanding with Justin Tosi & Brandon Warmke.

Half Hour of Heterodoxy

Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke talk about their new book Grandstanding: The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk on this episode. They explain how moral grandstanding differs from other vices like hypocrisy, and how it’s not the same as virtue signaling. They talk about psychological research that they have done with Joshua Green to create the grandstanding scale, which measures the motives for grandstanding, namely, prestige and dominance. Their findings suggest that the most partisan people are the most likely to engage in moral grandstanding.

Grandstanding: the Use and Abuse of Moral Talk | Brandon Warmke & Justin Tosi

Hidden Forces

In Episode 144 of Hidden Forces, Demetri Kofinas speaks with philosophers Brandon Warmke and Justin Tosi about the phenomenon of grandstanding, which they define as “the use and abuse of moral talk for the purposes of self-promotion.”  Although moral grandstanding is a spectacle most commonly associated with those on the political left, the practice of grandstanding is an entirely bipartisan phenomenon. Its increased prevalence in public discourse has dangerous implications for politics and society. For grandstanders, it isn’t the pursuit of virtue that motivates them. They aren’t concerned with doing good; they’re concerned with looking good; they want others to think that they are morally superior, and they’re willing to go to great lengths in order to do it, including using moral talk as a tactic for punishment and intimidation.   The irony is that grandstanders accomplish all of this by free-riding on the moral behavior and good intentions of others. They turn civil discourse into a moral arms race, weaponizing language, and silencing their enemies with threats of doxing and humiliation. Our society is currently going through a seismic transition. Norms are being radically upended and Americans are experiencing levels of political polarization arguably unseen since at least the 1970s. If we want to make it through this period in one piece, as one nation, undivided we need to reclaim the moral high ground in our discourse. Otherwise, I’m afraid we’re in danger of losing control of our country to the darker forces of our nature, and this would not bode well for the future of our republic.
