Annual Sir John Graham Lecture 2013 | The Illusion of Neutrality
Speaker: Dr Jonathan Chaplin
The public square is not a neutral space. In this lecture, Dr Jonathan Chaplin confronts the fallacy that political ideas can ever be completely detached from foundational worldviews, cultures or religions.
He presents a vision of a dynamic public square in which true diversity is respected, and argues that democracy will be strengthened, not weakened, by openly expressing the deep commitments underlying our political debates.
