The greatest problems of the 21st century - climate change,
terrorism, poverty and global inequality, among others – are
not the result of external threat, but predominantly the result
of human choice and behaviour. Julian argues that when
addressing these problems, we should look not only to policies
tailored to our moral limitations, but to altering the biological
dispositions which contribute to these limitations. In this
seminar he will explore the possibility of using medicine to
improve moral behaviour, discuss what impact it would have
on our freedom, evaluate the ongoing redefinition of
normality, and suggest alternative ways forward.
