With Good Reason: a debate on the foundations of ethics
Speaker(s): Dr Julian Baggini, Canon Dr Angus Ritchie, Dr Mark Vernon
Recorded on 6 December 2012 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
Religious and secular philosophers have long debated whether ethics have an objective basis (moral realism) or a relative basis (moral relativism). But does theism or atheism offer a better basis for ‘moral realism’? A theist, an atheist, and an agnostic discuss.
