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.
Other lectures in this series include:
- Secret ceramic worlds: The untold story of twentieth-century ceramic art
- Judging books by their covers
- Reformation England and the 'sense' of loss
