Thinking on Sunday was launched as a new series of events with different themes to the Sunday Lectures. These interesting and stimulating sessions have a talk or presentation followed by Q&A, debate and discussion. The speakers are experts in their field, and/or have a passion for subject. Especially popular with our ethical society members, Thinking on Sunday is open to the public and promises to motivate and nourish the mind!

February 2022

From Men’s Rights activists and incels to spiralling suicide rates, it’s easy to see that, while men still rule the world, masculinity is in crisis. Nina Power explores how men and women can live together in a world where capitalism and consumerism has replaced the values that used to give our lives meaning.

Beneath the glitzy surface of postmodernism there is a dirty secret: it is the fig leaf for a rapacious new kind of capitalism. Stuart Jeffries tell a radical new history of a dangerous idea.

Victoria Brooks offers an unflinching look at the lived experience of the mistress. Here she is recast as a potentially loving, free, intimate ‘other’ woman. She asks what happens when we opt for an ethics of sexual kindness and learning from mistresses, both straight and queer.

April 2022

More than one-fifth of children want to become influencers and it’s easy to understand why. What if you could escape economic uncertainty by winning the internet’s attention?
