Death Control: The Last Taboo, Part 2 - Professors Keith Ward and Richard Sorabji

Euthanasia, whilst becoming a more frequent topic for comment in the Press, is still viewed with as much suspicion as eugenics a hundred years ago. Ethical issues, legal and financial questions are touched on but tend to provoke well-worn responses. This Symposium provides an opportunity for serious debate on this important topic. This part of the symposium consists of the following talks: Religious Perspectives on Euthanasia by Professor Keith Ward DD FBA "Our Little Life is Rounded with a Sleep" ...Can Philosophy Calm Anxieties? by Professor Richard Sorabji CBE FBA All our lectures are available for free download from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats: http://www.gresham.ac.uk Gresham College professors and guest speakers have been giving free public lectures in central London since 1597.
