The Tanner Lectures on Human Values - Vol. 5

Excerpt

Since the Tanner Lectures on Human Values were established, lectures have been given at the six founding institutions: Clare Hall, Cambridge University; Harvard University; the University of Michigan; Brasenose College, Oxford University; Stanford University; and the University of Utah.

In addition, one-year lectureships have been granted to Utah State University (1978-79), Hebrew University at Jerusalem (1980-81), Australian National University (1981-82), Jawaharlal Nehru University (1982-83), and the University of Helsinki (1983-84). A 1984-85 lectureship has been established at the Queen's University of Belfast.

The Tanner lecturers have been appointed from a broad spectrum of interests and experiences. The register of lecturers includes philosophers, scientists, statesmen, historians, economists, artists, publishers -- all of whom are persons of high achievement who have made and are making important contributions to the analysis and substance of social and personal values. The lecture subjects have included matters pertaining to the environment, heredity, disarmament, international and domestic politics, justice, the economy, drugs and society, music, and the literary arts. They clearly exhibit the complex and multiple character of the historical development and current structure of human values, the nature of the most crucial value problems, and the difficult tasks confronting those who must attempt the solution of those problems.

Listed in this volume are the Tanner lecturers and their subjects through the current academic year, 1983-84. This year's Lectures will be published in Volume VI, in the spring of 1985. General indices of the first five volumes have been prepared and are published here in a form that will allow their being copied to accompany earlier volumes in the series. While all the contents of the Tanner Lectures volumes are under copyright protection, the Trustees permit the photocopying of the individual indices to enhance the usefulness of the series volumes.
