Public Lecture 3: Professor Paul Boghossian, New York University
Wednesday 23 May 2018 at 5.30-7.30: Royal Society of Edinburgh, 28 George Street, Edinburgh.

The third of the project’s series of Public Lectures will be given on Wednesday 23 May 2018 by Professor Paul Boghossian of New York University. He will address the question:
‘Should we be Relativists about Morality?’
Many people, philosophers and non-philosophers alike, regard themselves as relativists about morality. They are suspicious of there being any objective truths about how we should conduct our lives. In this talk, Professor Boghossian will argue that relativism about morality is not an option: we face a stark choice between eliminating moral discourse altogether or accepting a certain measure of objectivity about the moral domain. He will conclude by arguing in favour of the latter option.

The lecture will be held in the Wellcome West Room of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s building at 28 George Street, Edinburgh.
Attendance is free and open to all.
