Events List Navigation

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!

October 2019

In a world where fake news, mistrust of experts, prejudice and ignorance all too often hold sway, we can all too easily be misled over issues such as vaccinations, climate change or conspiracy theories. Knowing how to think clearly and critically has literally helped save the world.

November 2019

In the 2010s socioeconomic factors led to the widespread and increased disenfranchisement of poorer people from the mainstream media and the institutions shaping it. To put it plainly: the vast majority of people now tasked with creating our media simply lack the sensibilities that have always driven artistic innovation.

Anarchism routinely gets a bad press. It is seen as meaning chaos and disorder — or even nothing at all. And yet, from Extinction Rebellion to Pussy Riot, Noam Chomsky to David Graeber, this philosophical and political movement is as relevant as ever.

December 2019

As innovations in military technologies race toward ever-greater levels of automation and autonomy, debates over the ethics of violent technologies tread water. Dr Elke Schwarz reframes these debates, arguing that the way we conceive of the ethics of contemporary warfare is itself imbued with a set of bio-technological rationalities that work as limits.
