On the evening of November 13th, thirteen Radley boys from the Crowson Society (the 6.1 academic society) went to Downe House, Newbury, to listen to
two talks: one given by two Downe House girls from the 'Phoenix Society' (their
6th form academic society) and the other given by two Radley boys.
The two Downe House speakers gave a detailed and well-delivered
presentation on the application of the One Child Policy in China: whilst the
two Radley boys, Johnny Dewhurst and Oliver Donaldson (both F social), gave an
interesting lecture on ‘trollyology’: a thought problem in ethics which
analyses our deepest intuitions about the morality of killing.
Following the two talks, the Radley boys sat down to dinner with the
Downe House girls in what was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
