‘Are our wars just?’ is the title of the next lunchtime lecture to be given at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Stranmillis Road, Belfast.
The lecture is given by Harry Bunting, formerly Lecturer and Course Director in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Ulster.
Subtitled ‘Human Conflict: the Augustinian perspective’, the lecture is set against the background of recent wars around the globe, some involving western powers and whose justification has been widely called into question.
Harry Bunting has published widely in the fields of ethics, political philosophy and philosophy of religion. Since 2007 he has been chairman of the Philosophy of Religion section of the Tyndale Fellowship. He is also a member of the Philosophy Committee of the Royal Irish Academy. Since his retirement in 2010 he has studied and lectured widely on aspects of the relationship between theism and morality.
Everyone is welcome at this lecture, which commences at 1.10pm on Tuesday November 13. It will include a time for questions. Light refreshments will also be available.
