About the project:

The Affections and Ethics group draws together expertise from across the University in order to explore the significance of affections and emotions in ethics. Group members are drawn from Philosophy, Theology and Religion, Medical Sciences, Social Sciences and other disciplines. All are welcome to participate. Research will be conducted through a series of seminars during 2013-2014. To be kept updated on the development of the project, please sign up to the email list by contacting any of the group members.
