Well – fresh back from another enjoyable school visit. Today I was just south of Coventry to talk about the Problem of Evil and Ethics (esp Utilitarianism). The group there had lots to say – and it was good to see so many people engaging with Philosophy and Religious ideas.
Many of the links at http://r-p-e.blogspot.com/2008/02/malmesbury-school-visit.html will be useful – as I provide some links there re the Omelas short story – and to a list of ethical dilemmas.
I am also interested in the notion that ethics has some, but rather hard to define (and in some cases spot) impact on those that study it. This topics is one we have discussed at http://r-p-e.blogspot.com/2007/02/ethical-decisions-and-study-of.html – though new comments are welcome.
Oh – and if you can’t get enough on the Problem of Evil -see the links at http://www.rsweb.org.uk/phil/evil.html
Hope the class there enjoyed the material as much as I enjoyed the visit.
