Moral Philosophy Seminar

These seminars take place every week in term time throughout the year, on Mondays from 4.30 to 6.30, usually in the Lecture Room at the Philosophy Centre, Radcliffe Humanities, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6GG. 

The seminars are open to all.  Those who attend are invited to join the speaker and the convenor for wine and dinner at Somerville College immediately following the end of the seminar, though the number of diners cannot exceed fourteen.  Vegetarian meals and wine for students will be paid for by the convenor.
