The Moral Philosophy Seminar (MPS) is a regular seminar which explores all areas and frameworks of moral philosophy, including normative ethics, applied ethics, and meta-ethics. The seminar is open to all; those who attend are invited to join the speaker and convenor for wine and dinner at Somerville College immediately afterwards, though the diners cannot exceed fourteen in number. Vegetarian meals and wine for students will be paid for by the convenor.
Seminars ordinarily take place on Mondays 4.30-6.30pm in the Lecture Room at the Radcliffe Humanities Building, Woodstock Rd.
