A Sense for Humanity: The Ethical Thought of Raimond Gaita - Film Screening and Round table discussion

Presented by The Flinders Institute for Research in the Humanities

Over the past thirty years Professor Raimond Gaita has made an outstanding contribution to contemporary analytic moral philosophy, not least for his distinctive vision of the nature of moral philosophy as an academic discipline. However the influence of his ethical thought extends through his various writings, including his acclaimed biography of his father, Romulus, My Father, well beyond academic philosophy to many researchers working in other disciplines and to many more members of the hard-thinking educated public.

There are three public events associated with the Sense for Humanity conference, including a Public Lecture by Professor Gaita. All three public events are free, however registration is essential. Further conference information and registration can be found below.
