The Moral Psychology Research Group is delighted to announce our next event, a debate between Prof. Roger Crisp and Prof Andrew McLeod on the empirical psychological and philosophical questions surrounding well-being and the good life.

The event will be chaired by Dr. Gillian Sandstrom (Psychology, University of Cambridge) and will include presentations by Prof. Crisp (5pm) and Prof. MacLeod (6pm), each followed by discussion between speakers and Q&A. A wine reception will conclude the event.

About the presenters:

Prof. Roger Crisp is a Uehiro fellow and professor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. His work is dedicated to fundamental questions about the nature of well-being and the role of virtue in a well-lived life. He is the author of Mill on Utilitarianism (1997) and Reasons and the Good (2006) and editor of The Oxford Handbook of the History of Ethics (2013), among many others.

Prof. Andrew MacLeod is a professor of Clinical Psychology and director of the clinical doctorate program of the Royal Holloway University of London.
