Dr Subroto Roy, Wincott Professor of Economics at Buckingham, gave the final public lecture of the Summer Term on 24th August.The eminent economist stepped outside his professional interests to discuss some contemporary issues in the context of a well-reasoned ethical philosophy.Building on the work of the Cambridge philosophers John Wisdom and Renford Bambrough, Dr Roy endeavoured to show that reason can be applied to human affairs and that we are not drowned in a sea of subjectivity when we discuss rival doctrines.
...
Using a concept of reason that extends beyond the confines of the deductive and inductive methods, and which originates in ancient Greece, Dr Roy tried to show that we can explore the contradictions that exist in the minds and utterances of people like Osama bin Laden.Displaying his great knowledge of the world's religions, Dr Roy was able to show that the contemporary suicide bombers are clearly in breach of the rules of their faith.He expanded this to show that all of the issues of our time, in ethics, economics, law and philosophy, are not as intractable as they appear and can be resolved using the methods of Wisdom and Bambrough.All that is required is free discussion.The major religions today are nested in some kind of understanding of the world and have more in common that we realise.Dr Roy was a provocative speaker and answered many penetrating questions.
