“Us” not “me”; “we” not “I”: a morality for the 21st Century. This session will focus on the ideas of the late Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, religious leader, biblical scholar, philosopher and public intellectual. Rabbi Sacks passed away in November 2020, not long after the publication of his book Morality: restoring the common good in divided times, in which he made the case for combatting “cultural climate change” to build a shared framework of virtues and values. Moderated by Rebecca Cody.

Can philanthropy change the world? Philanthropists can step where governments fear to tread. They invest where business sees no profit. A positive view compares it to acupuncture – inserting tiny needles to trigger systemic change. But is such faith in philanthropy well founded?

Civil liberties versus security. Twenty years ago, on 11 September 2001, terrorists crashed passenger jets into the World Trade Centre in New York. The attacks prompted much tougher national security laws in many countries, including Australia. Is it necessary to trade some democratic freedoms for safety and if so, have we got the balance right?

Reason, Intuition and Emotion. Our responses to some ethical challenges are immediate. We know what is right or wrong, without stopping to think. So while philosophers have tended to emphasise the centrality of reason in decision making, such automatic responses suggest that there is more going on. Do we really think our way to decisions – or is the pathway one of feeling and intuition? This session will discuss recent scientific thinking including the concept of social intuitionism developed by leading psychologist Jonathan Haidt and its implications for ethical leadership.
Saturday Session topics will be confirmed in the month prior to the event.  Participants will be emailed links to pre-readings, and a Zoom invitation a few days prior.

Whistleblowing. Whistle-blowers alert us to important matters of public interest, but how do we judge when it is the right thing to do? And given that whistle blowers are often vilified or sacked, why should we expect any one to do it?
