Cornelia Daheim answers these and other questions in a conversation with Michaela Doepke for the network Ethik Heute (“Ethics today” – interview in German only).

The interview covers topics such as the common good orientation, the unconditional basic income, the robot tax and pro bono work – lining out a future in which the transfer of much work by machines creates more spaces for human interaction, rather than dehumanizing them. For realising this, however, new ideas beyond the paradigms of the present are needed.
