Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce our free series of monthly philosophy talks, Philosophy in the Bookshop. This month, host Nigel Warburton will be in discussion with Dr Julia Shaw about her book 'Making Evil'.

Why do we think and do evil? What can science teach us about why humans do bad things? And what do our reactions to deviance teach us about ourselves?

Drawing together science, psychology and philosophy, Julia Shaw unlocks the intricacies of the world of criminal psychology. Grappling with thorny dilemmas from 'Would I kill baby Hitler?' to 'Why do I want to murder my spouse?', Making Evil will give you a better understanding of the world, yourself, and your Google search history.

Original, fresh and rigorous, Making Evil shines a searching light into the darker corners of the human psyche, illuminating a modern science of evil.

This is FREE event to attend and will take place in the Philosophy Department of the shop. (Please Note: There is limited access to this area of the Norrington Room)
