The regular monthly get-together of the Manchester Armchair Philosophers group.
The theme for this month, suggested by Alan Russell, will be:
Can we programme ethics?
We will probably have to. E.g. automatic cars (who do I run over?), battlefield robots.
If you have any questions/comments then you can leave them below, or email me on ManchesterArmchairPhilosophers AT gmail DOT com
Any topics/themes you would like us to discuss? All suggestions are put in a hat and chosen more or less at random (I try to keep a good mix of topics so two similar topics won't be in consecutive months).
When you arrive for the meet-up, please get yourself a drink from the downstairs bar and then bring it upstairs to the function room.
We have been kindly allowed to use the function room for free on the understanding we'll buy some drinks ;-)
If you aren't sure where we are, phone me on[masked] and I will help you to find your way.
See you there,
PS - We ask those that can afford it to make a voluntary contribution (suggested £2) to cover the fees that meet-up charge for the use of this website. Our group has agreed that any excess monies received will be donated to Amnesty International (AI). AI are a human rights charity who, amongst other things, support those who live in countries which restrict the freedom of speech that we, thankfully, can take for granted at these meet-ups.
