Lifelong Learning Lectures

The Reverend Francis Hutcheson (1694-1746) has been largely lost to history, obscured by the fame of successors like David Hume, Adam Smith, and Immanuel Kant, but he was a remarkably rigorous and original philosopher.  In this lecture, Rafe defends Hutcheson’s claim that right and wrong are perceived in a similar manner to colour and tone, offering contemporary evidence in support of his moral sense theory.
