Morality: A Natural History, 55-Plus Club of Princeton

Share:


Thursday October 15, 2020
10:00 AM

What is morality and what are its origins? How do we decide what is good and what is bad, what we should do and what we should not do? The search for answers to these questions has challenged mankind since the beginning of recorded history. Today we face an existential crisis where many of our fundamental ideas are being questioned. This talk, based on my recently published book, Morality: A Natural History, will offer a point of view that integrates ancient wisdom with contemporary science. I will outline efforts of thinkers and researchers in such diverse fields as philosophy, religion, child development, evolutionary biology, experimental psychology, and sociology that help to provide answers to these all-important questions.

Roger V. Moseley was born in England and received an A.B. with Highest Honors in Chemistry from Princeton University and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School. Following military service, where he was awarded a Bronze Star for his service as a combat surgeon in the U.S. Army Surgical Research Team in Vietnam, he returned to Princeton and became Chief of General Surgery at the Medical Center of Princeton. Now retired, he serves on the Medical Ethics Committee of the Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center. Moseley is the author of many articles in the surgical and scientific literature, and served as a physician to high-altitude climbing expeditions on four continents. Now retired from surgical practice, he travels when possible, often with family, including ten grandchildren. He welcomes spirited discussions on the origin of the universe, the meaning of life, and any other topic best enjoyed over a cool pint of beer with friends.
