Nothing is as fundamental to human coexistence as morality. This is what prompts us to subordinate our own interests to the general welfare, respect others and even show solidarity with them. But how self-evident is morality? And how far does it reach? Do we only owe moral behaviour to those nearest to us – or also to those most distant? And what is the difference between moral obligation and voluntary compassion? In our era of global crises and migration movements, these questions are urgent and define the limits of responsibility. Author Bernhard Schlink and philosopher Tobias Rosefeldt discuss the beginning and end of morality.
