Resources > Talks > How Do We Raise Moral Children? 17th May 2013

How Do We Raise Moral Children? What is our best protection against moral catastrophes such as the Holocaust and killing fields of Cambodia? Are such events a product of the collapse of traditional religious authority and the rise of secularism and atheism? Must we either return to traditional religious values and authority, or slide into moral relativism and nihilism? How do we raise moral citizens?

This was our first lecture in memory of Harold Blackham, philosopher, lecturer, writer and one of the architects of the British and international Humanist movements.

We apologise for the inconsistent sound quality in this lively discussion.

One of our members, known on his internet blog site as "The Secularist Fish", has written quite a lengthy summary of the talk.
