Overview

From Professor John Basl’s work on moral issues raised by the creation of artificial intelligence or consciousness to Professor Patricia Illingworth’s work on the ethics of philanthropy, our faculties’ research brings philosophical analysis to the world in which we find ourselves. Providing clarity to contemporary moral issues in both the classroom and the public arena is our aim.
