Foundations of Global Morality with Mary Warnock

Baroness Warnock examines the need for a global morality In this public lecture at the RSA, Baroness Warnock makes an extensive, carefully constructed case for the need for a global morality that extends beyond nation states.

From her own philosophical ideas on the roots of individual morality, learned in the classroom, playground and family, through to her experience of the ethics of medical research trials, she poses the question of whether and how there can be a kind of public morality that extends beyond the state, under some kind of global rule of law.

Her arguments and conclusions on this weighty matter are discussed by a group of teachers and educators, who explore her points and reflect on their implications for schools and educators, after the lecture.
