Are companies "zombies" that can't be shamed?

Can companies be held morally responsible for their activities? Most people would probably say yes, on grounds that companies have a duty to society to behave in an ethical manner. But the legal basis for defining corporate responsibility is still contested and the subject of lengthy lawsuits. Eric W. Orts, visiting professor at INSEAD as well as Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics and Management at Wharton, joins us to discuss the topic.

Medieval China: Crash Course History of Science #8

Like Egypt, Sumer, and Mesoamerica, ancient China represents a hydraulic civilization—one that maintained its population by diverting rivers to aid in irrigation—and one that developed writing thousands of years ago. Today, we’re going to focus on the time of the Northern and Southern Song Dynasties, a time of great technical innovation. But, before we get to the Song, let’s take a tour through the ages and explore key elements of Chinese scientific culture.

Where is the right balance between safeguarding our civil liberties and protecting the national security of the United States? Is America's conception of freedom compatible with the reality of our unstable and insecure world?

In addition to teaching, Professor Harris —a graduate of Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania's Law School— hosts the weekly NPR syndicated show Your Weekly Constitutional, which is produced in partnership with the Center for the Constitution at James Madison's historic home, Montpelier. The lecture was hosted by the King Institute for Security and Intelligence Studies and the student-led King Security and Intelligence Studies Group, in association with the Bristol Public Library.
