Trust shapes us all from earliest childhood: children trust their parents, and without trust we would be unable to make friends or find romantic relationships.
At the same time, trust is also a pivotal political value: we need to trust both our fellow citizens and our political representatives if democracy is to function. Above all, we need to depend on them to represent our interests.
How is such trust formed in the first place? Can we reason out whom to trust or is this more a matter of gut feelings? Can we also trust institutions? And can we criticise individuals for trusting too much or too little?
Philosopher Christian Budnik has been studying the topic of trust for many years, and seeks answers to these questions in discussions with pupils.
Moderation: Cornelia Mooslechner-Brüll
