DPS Meeting
Could a secular ethic defend paedophilia?
Wednesday 29 February from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds campus

Unfortunately, the planned Jim Hopkins session had to be cancelled. Instead we’ll discuss the question, ‘Could a secular ethic defend paedophilia?’ Rabbi Moshe Averick’s brief article ‘A Plea to Atheists: Pedophilia Is Next On the Slippery Slope; Let Us Turn Back Before It Is Too Late’ will form the basis of discussion. Averick responded to reader comments in the follow-up article ‘Atheism and Pedophilia Part II: The Incoherent Moral Philosophy of Michael Ruse’ and that article may clarify some of the arguments in the first article.

Hope to see you all there.

Kind regards,

Dylan Nickelson,
Treasurer, Deakin Philosophical Society.
