Jonathan Ives: Inaugural Lecture



Inaugural Lecture by Professor Jonathan Ives

Four quotes and a frustration: Progress in bioethics and noble failure

This inaugural lecture will explore two interlinked aspects of Jon’s research in bioethics; focusing on concepts of ‘progress’ and ‘noble failure’ and examining how they can be helpful in both bioethics research and day-to-day ethical decision making. It will track the development of these ideas through four apparently unrelated quotes (from Shakespeare, a different Shakespeare, Nietzsche, and Terry Pratchett), which will coalesce into a methodological account born of a mixture of frustration and optimism.

Date: 30/05/2024

Arrival Time: 18:00. The Lecture will be from 18.15 - 19.15 hrs

Location: Priory Road Lecture Theatre, Priory Road Complex, Priory Road, Bristol, BS8 1TU

The lecture will be recorded. There will be a drinks reception after the event with nibbles.
