There's an old saying that in polite company, it's not proper to talk about religion or politics. The six-part lecture series Impolite Company is designed to turn this saying on its head. Topics to be covered in the series include politics, philosophy, economic, government systems, and religion. The format for each event in the series will include a lecture portion and a discussion portion. Event times are expected to vary from two to three hours, with most of the time being reserved for the discussion portion.
“Knowledge unshared is knowledge wasted.” –B.M.B.
“Rights, Morality, & Religion”
The third lecture in the Impolite Company series begins the polemic against religion. The genesis of rights and morality will be discussed, and common conceptions of rights and morality will be heavily scrutinized. Think rights come from some “Creator?” Think again. Areas of discussion will include: Natural rights and divine command, human rights, political rights, the social contract tradition, utilitarianism, and consequentialism.
