Would you lie to protect a friend? Do you put your life on hold to care for your elderly parent?

Ethical dilemmas are some of the toughest problems we will face. Thankfully, over 2,000 years of philosophical enquiry has provided us with a range of powerful tools to help solve them. This intimate, in person session will be fun, playful and interactive as it provides an introduction to ethics and looks at four of the major ethical frameworks proposed by philosophers including consequentialism, deontology, virtue ethics and ethics of care, and show you how to apply them in your life.

You’ll share the session with other curious participants, who are willing to delve deeper into the mess and complexity of what it means to be human.

Places are limited to ensure everyone can participate.

So, tune in to tune up and hopefully we can all do life just that little bit better.

About the series

Ethics Tune Up is an innovative and engaging masterclass series from The Ethics Centre that will take your ethical skills to the next level. These workshops are an opportunity to extend your knowledge of ethics and learn how you can apply these principles in your life.

Facilitated by leading philosopher Dr Tim Dean, these two-hour workshops will be equally enjoyable and informative as they help you navigate today’s complex ethical terrain and guide you towards living a good life.

This session is part of a new masterclass series including Ancient Wisdom for Everyday Life (8 May) and Ethical Blind Spots (15 May). Book a multipack and save on experiencing all three sessions.
