The second of two lectures discussing the centrality of the ideas of autonomy, individualism and the relation of these ideas to liberal ideas of rights. We shall then go on to discuss how these ideas relate to current controversies like assisted suicide. These ideas provide a fruitful basis for a debate about liberalism and religion.
The first lecture on Liberalism, Autonomy and Rights took place on 11 November 2014.
Due to unforeseen circumstances Professor the Lord Plant will be unable to deliver this lecture. The lecture will now be delivered by Emeritus Professor of Divinity, Professor the Lord Harries.
