Moral Commitments, Moral Choices

In an age defined by disruption and transformation, political change, and 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? How do we define our obligations? What do we owe future generations? What does it mean to live a good life? 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.
