Evidence-based ethics – Suffolk Humanists in Colchester
We’ll be at the Quaker Meeting House, Church Street, Colchester.
Michael Imison is organising an experimental “ethical jury”. He writes, “I’d like members to bring one or more examples of actual situations where the moral course was not clear. The examples should, for the purpose of this exercise, be as specific as possible, maybe even derived from the member’s own experience. The jury will need to know as much as possible about the facts surrounding the case. After we have heard what is on offer, we will vote to select two of them (more if there is time) and hopefully will be able in each case to find two people with opposing views who can then act as advocates setting out the case while the rest of us form the jury and finally reach a verdict. Twelve Angry Humanists? Hopefully not, but it will be interesting to find out how much moral consensus there is. Do come even if you are stuck for a question to consider.”
There’ll be more info in our next newsletter, due soon.
