Moral Commitments, Moral Choices

In an age defined by disruption and transformation, speed and innovation, compromise and conflict, it’s crucial to take a step back and reflect on the big questions that define our lives and broader society. When is war justified? Do we have an obligation to distant refugees? What do we owe future generations? What is the value of human life? Is there a universal morality? In this series of lectures, debates, and discussions, we’ll delve into the large moral questions that philosophers and ethicists have pondered for centuries, focusing on applications of moral choice to some of the critical contemporary challenges that we all face — individually and as part of a larger collective.
