Historical Connections Between Metaphysics and Ethics

From Neuroscience and the Soul

Keith Ward sat down with the Biola University Center for Christian Thought (cct.biola.edu) in San Diego, California on July 2013. In this clip, Ward discusses how a metaphysical rejection of teleology and objective purposes in (human) nature led to a mechanistic empiricist ethic like utilitarianism. Keith Ward is Emeritus Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford, Fellow of the British Academy, and currently Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College in London. He is the author of numerous books in philosophy and theology, including More Than Matter?, In Defense of the Soul, The Big Questions in Science and Religion, and his five-volume Comparative Theology. Music: "Raise Them High" and "Hey! Get in the Van!" by Cinema Cycle (cinemacycle.bandcamp.com)
