This free seminar series, organised by U3A Manawatu, funded by Eastern & Central Community Trust and open to the public, looks at aspects of behaviour. Can we determine and apply criteria so as to act “correctly”?

May 15th: Does religion provide an adequate basis for morality?
Religions typically claim to offer instruction on how people should conduct their lives, and the western monotheistic traditions in particular hold that God has provided humankind with specific moral guidance. In practice, the faithful have to supplement religious revelation with moral reasoning of their own both to fill gaps in the revelation and to explain away moral perspectives that no longer seem acceptable.

Presenter: Dr Chris van der Krogt, Senior Lecturer, School of Humanities, Massey University

Admission Free: Gold coin for tea/coffee and biscuits.
