How good is good enough? - presented by Daniel McKay philosopher and ethicist from Canterbury University

Thursday 14 June, 7.30pm, the Chapman Room

How do we know if we are doing enough good in the world? How do we justify spending time and money on ourselves while millions suffer? Daniel McKay, a philosopher and ethicist from Canterbury University, will tackle these questions and more. Through his work on the value of exercising free will, he provides an answer that asks much of us to be a good person, but still allows us to spend time on the people and activities we love. This talk will touch on issues of effective altruism, moral obligation and moral demandingness.
