John and I had fun with this one. We talk through MacIntyre's analysis of the failure of the Enlightenment's ethical project and the difficulty the idea of telos posed for it.
There was a lot of chaos in our respective apartments, so we got a little derailed towards the end. We're going to return to MacIntyre's argument about human rights in greater detail in the next installment. In lieu of that, we had a broader closing conversation about the need for his argument with a little teaser for our upcoming series on the Korean War.
