Talk: Euthanasia

Talk: Euthanasia

On Thurs 11th January a large audience composed of Radleians and visitors from four local schools (and the village Church) crammed into the Coffee Shop to hear a compelling - and challenging - talk on abortion and euthanasia from Jeff McMahan, White's Professor of Moral Philosophy at Oxford University. His starting point that a bundle of cells is not a person and that a foetus has a different moral status to a grown child or adult led to some uncompromising conclusions and a raft of audience questions. Jeff is pictured still going strong with these well after 10pm. Much as in September when Simon Goldhill, Professor Greek at Cambridge, came to talk on Tragedy, we were reminded how lucky we are that such stellar academic speakers are willing to come to the College and share their ideas so generously.
