A Talk and Discussion by Tim O Grady entitled TOMORROW’S CHALLENGE: The Moral Outlook

Synopsis

 

Many are thinking about tomorrow and the many challenges that await us. However, scant attention seems to have been paid to considerations that verge on ethical issues. The MORAL dimension of much that is anticipated and being discussed seems to be absent. This Talk will explore some of the serious issues that lie in our wake.
