519 Church St., Room 201
Topic: Suicide and Humanism
Proposed by: Richard Dowsett
- What emotions do humanists experience when they think about suicide?
- Does a humanist philosophy allow for suicide as a legitimate life choice under certain circumstances? What circumstances?
- What consequences would this philosophy have within the greater society if it were the predominant one?
- Whatever our thoughts on suicide, are they consistent with our thoughts on other life/death issues such as capital punishment, abortion, euthanasia?
