Royal Institute of Philosophy
Belief, choice and responsibility
Presented by Professor Peter Jones, University of Newcastle.
The lecture takes as its point of departure the current law on
indirect religious discrimination and examines how far people’s
religious (or similar) beliefs should entitle them to make demands
upon others. It pursues the issue whether we should hold people
responsible for believing what they do and, if we should, what the
practical implications of that are. The Philosophy Unit at the
University of Hull is a branch of the Royal Institute of
Philosophy. The Royal Institute of Philosophy is a charity
dedicated to the advancement of philosophy in all its branches
through the organisation and promotion of teaching, discussion and
research of all things philosophical.
Sponsored by the Royal Institute of Philosophy.
