Given the constant barrage of rather trite material available from most major media outlets, the recent discovery of this fine site is a welcome breath of fresh air. Developed by Professor Lawrence M. Hinman as part of his Ethics Updates site (which has been online since 1994), this part of his main site is dedicated to providing high-quality lectures and discussions from prominent philosophers and others working in the field of ethics. The videos here date back to 1997 and begin with Professor Hinman's own lectures on ethical theory, and continue to the year 2002. The most recent additions include commentaries by Thomas H. Murray on "The Ethics of Genetic Enhancement" and several sessions from the 2002 meeting of the Pacific Division of the American Philosophical Association. Other highlights available for consideration here include proceedings from the October 2001 conference on "Morality in the 21st Century" held by the American Philosophical Association and a talk by Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen on "Human Rights and Consequences" given at the Kenan Ethics Program at Duke University.
