With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility? The Challenges of Superhero Ethics
June 22, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Steve Swartzer, Philosophy Outreach Coordinator, will be giving a public talk on the challenges of superhero ethics. Should you save your loved one and let the villain get away? Are superheroes morally responsible for the innocents they harm in their epic battles with evil? Can vigilante justice be just? Participate in a lively conversation about the rules superheroes should live by and some of the special ethical challenges they face.
The talk will begin at 8:00PM in the Daily Planet Cafe located at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. For more information visit: http://naturalsciences.org/calendar/event/adult-nights-superheroscience/.
