London Under Attack: the moral complexities of WWII bombings (Forum for European Philosophy public lecture)

21 October 2015, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Forum for European Philosophy public lecture

In June 1944, London was targeted by German terror bombing. The British War Cabinet faced an ethical dilemma: Should they attempt to use double agents to redirect the raids away from Central London and towards less populated areas? Or should they let events take their course? Ethicist Susanne Burri analyses this real-life wartime dilemma and explores what we can learn from it today.

Susanne Burri is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE.
