About this Event

Moral creatures: shaping the world through human images

The philosopher and novelist, Iris Murdoch, wrote: ‘Man is a creature that makes pictures of himself and then comes to resemble the picture’. Literature, poetry, art and philosophy are full of powerful images. So too is real life and propaganda. Dr Rachael Wiseman, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy looks at the moral implications of human image making. How have images of the human offered by poets and philosophers of the past shaped human life today? How do we know which pictures to copy and which to eschew? What sort of images do we need now if we are to become the sort of creatures who can navigate the moral, political and technological environment of the twenty-first century?

The lecture will be followed by a live Q&A session.

This lecture is the fourth in the University of Liverpool's 2021 Series of Public Lectures in the Arts on the theme of WORD - IMAGE - POWER.

Presented by the University of Liverpool School of the Arts
