TEDxEMU - Henry Hastings - The Importance of a Moral Point of View

A person must have a willingness, and ability, to live in a world of should and should not, rather than in a world of can and cannot. When the moral dimension is lacking, it often leads to a nihilistic view of life. Without a moral point of view, you are more likely to suffer a harm of some sort or another. You only need to view the news on any given day to witness the countless social tragedies that result from an insufficient consideration of others. A moral point of view is necessary for a life of meaning and fulfillment.Dr. Henry J. Hastings is currently a full time lecturer in the College of Business at Eastern Michigan University.
