In conversation with - Iain King

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 17th Feb 2009

In his book How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time (Continuum), Iain King argues that right and wrong need a Newtonian revolution so they are no longer a matter of judgment or guesswork.

While dismantling traditional tenets of moral philosophy (including ‘do unto others...'), he constructs a new, comprehensive system of ethics and identifies the basic DNA of right and wrong.

King has been political advisor to Paddy Ashdown on the Northern Ireland Peace Process, a peace-keeping administrator in Kosovo and consultant to Kofi Annan's Africa Progress Panel.
