Description

The Coming Good Society - Three Lectures by Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz

Lecture 1: "Where Do Rights Come From?" Rights describe a good society. Just as our notion of the “good society” may change from generation to generation, so should our understanding of rights.
Wednesday, May 13, 6:30 pm
First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street, Boston

Lecture 2: "Brave New World?" If rights change with changing circumstances, some rights may need to be reconceived. Today new technologies can track our every step and even produce “designer babies,” so how should we update the rights to privacy and personal sovereignty?
Wednesday, May 20, 6:30 pm
First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street, Boston

Lecture 3: "Do Robots Have Rights? How About Rocks?" Animals, robots, and even ecosystems need to be considered holders of rights if we truly want to create a good society.
Thursday, May 21, 6:30 pm
King's Chapel, 58 Tremont Sreet, Boston
