On this edition of Up to Date, the Ethics Professors join Steve Kraske to examine questions raised by recent events making the news. Has the digital theft of female celebrities’ photos changed how we look at victim and perpetrator?  In Ferguson, Missouri, was it right for outside influences to come on the scene and add rhetorical fuel to the fire?  How much involvement should a college or university have in investigating a sexual assault on campus?  Find out what the Professors, and listeners, had to say.

Guests:

  • Wayne Vaught is the dean of the University of Missouri - Kansas City College of Arts and Sciences as well as a professor of Philosophy, Medicine and Bioethics.
  • Clancy Martin is a professor of Philosophy at the University of Missouri - Kansas City.
