Event Details

Professor Peter Singer will give the 10th Routledge Lecture in Philosophy entitled "The Point of View of the Universe: Defending Sidgwick's Ethics".

Abstract:

Henry Sidgwick, Knightbridge Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge and the cofounder of Newnham College, is, along with Bentham and Mill, one of the three great nineteenth century utilitarians.  My own work in ethics is consistent with his idea that in ethics we should take "the point of view of the universe."

In this talk I shall explore the implications of taking that stance, and ask how much of Sidgwick's utilitarianism is still defensible today.
