Is Nothing Sacred Anymore?

 YouTube video description [Channel PhilosophyTalkRadio]:
"Tribal societies lived in a world of the sacred and profane, ritual and taboo. Is there anything left of this structure in the modern world? Is anything really taboo, or are things just inadvisable, problematic, unhealthy, unwise, and less than optimal under the circumstances? John and Ken consider what, if anything, is still sacred with Cora Diamond from the University of Virginia. This program was recorded in front of a live audience at Pacific University's 15th annual undergraduate philosophy conference in Forest Grove, Oregon."
