UCD Centre for Ethics in Public Life
Public Lecture Series 2020
We kicked off 2020 with a series of four lectures by philosophers from UCD Centre for Ethical in Public Life on ethical questions impacting personal, public and professional spheres. A fifth lecture was planned but cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The audio from these lectures are now being made available. Each lecture was around 40 minutes and followed by discussion (which was not recorded).
