Power is one of the most fascinating topics in ethics today. Because it is everywhere.

Power permeates our lives, from our political institutions to interpersonal relationships. It’s even inside our own minds. Sometimes power is obvious – like the state putting someone in prison. Sometimes it is subtle – like how some voices are amplified in the media while others are silenced. It comes as no surprise that the ability to shape our world, our politics, and our personalities raises sticky ethical questions.

Join Dr Gwilym David Blunt, a Fellow of The Ethics Centre, for this interactive journey – featuring thought experiments to challenge your perceptions – that will unpack the slippery nature of power and the ethical challenges it poses.

This event is part of a series which includes The Ethics of Beauty on 29 February and The Ethics of Shame on 27 March. 

Event live stream will be available to watch on demand for up to 14 days post-event. 

About 'The Ethics Of...'

‘The Ethics of…’ is an event series where we freely examine the experiences, hopes and challenges that make us truly human; from the good to the bad and everything in between. Each event is an intimate conversation, led by a philosopher, with opportunities for the audience to share their experiences, views and learn from each other. Join us for this important and interactive event, held both in person and livestreamed, about the ways we connect with each other.
