Public Lecture: Manipulating Morality

  • 10 Dec 2014
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Manipulating Morality: a talk with Professor Julian Savulescu
Centre for Integrative Brain Function

The greatest problems of the 21st century - climate change, environmental degradation, terrorism, poverty, global inequality, mass migration, depletion of resources, infectious diseases, abuse and neglect of children – are predominantly the result of human choice and behavior. They are caused by neurobiological human moral limitations.
Focusing on terrorism, global poverty and climate change, Professor Savulescu will argue that we need to alter these moral limitations through human moral bio-enhancement in order to successfully meet these challenges

The lecture will be followed by an In-Conversation with Scott Stephens (Religion and Ethics Editor, ABC Online) who will host the evening.
You will have an opportunity to ask Julian and Scott a question in a lively Q&A session.
