2017 Knox Lecture

A video recording of Prof Peter Singer's Knox Lecture. Singer spoke to an audience of over 300 people, and the lecture raised over £1600 in donations for effective charities.

Below you will find details of six projects that members of CEPPA are currently tackling. Prospective visitors, speakers, or other affiliates of CEPPA should note, however, that the Centre has a very broad scope; any topic in ethics (applied ethics, normative ethics, or metaethics), social, political, legal, or public philosophy, would fall within the Centre’s remit regardless of any connection or lack thereof to these six highlighted projects.
