The Tanner Lectures on Human Values

Volume 29

Edited by Suzan Young

Tanner Lectures

The Tanner Lectures on Human Values were founded July 1, 1978, at Clare Hall, Cambridge University, by American scholar, industrialist, and philanthropist Obert Clark Tanner, to advance and reflect upon scholarly and scientific learning related to human values. The purpose embraces the entire range of physical, moral, artistic, intellectual, and religious values pertinent to the human condition, interest, behavior, and aspiration. Appointment as a Tanner Lecturer is a recognition of uncommon abilities and outstanding scholarly or leadership achievement. Volume 29 also includes an extensive and diverse series of lectures and panel discussions held at Brasenose College, Oxford, in honor of the five hundreth year since the founding of Kings Hall and Brasenose College. This volume features lectures by Lisa Jardine, Michael Tomasello, Sari Nusseibeh, Marc Hauser, and Jeremy Waldron.
