Battle against the Fates

Are we are living in one of the most fatalistic times? Scientists claim everything from sexual preference to criminality is hardwired, behavioural economics suggests we are essentially irrational and what happens in your childhood is said to stay with you. Fighting against the fates in this thought provoking debate are: Jeffrey Rosen, professor of law, George Washington University; author, The Supreme Court: the personalities and rivalries that defined America; Steve Rayner, James Martin Professor of Science and Civilization; director, Institute for Science, Innovation and Society, University of Oxford; Frank Furedi, professor of sociology, University of Kent, Canterbury, author of On Tolerance: in defence of moral independence and Peter Hunter OP, principal tutor, philosophy, Blackfriars Hall; Dominican Friar.
