David Layton: The Humanism of Dr. Who

  • Apr 11, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • UU Meeting Hall

Dr. David Layton is author of The Humanism of Doctor Who: A Critical Study in Science Fiction and Philosophy. Doctor Who's thoughtful presentation of a secular humanist view of the universe stands in stark contrast to the flashy special effects central to most science fiction on television. This examination of Doctor Who from the perspective of philosophical humanism assesses the show's careful exploration of such topics as justice, ethics, good and evil, mythology and knowledge.

7 - 8pm - Speaker

Admission is $5.00 and goes toward renting the venue and providing food. If you are a student or unable to afford the admission you are welcome to attend free of charge.
