Practical Ethics and Responsibility

Practical Ethics and Responsibility

Four Philosophy and Theology pupils in the Lower Sixth recently entered the Uehiro Centre’s Practical Ethics and Responsibility competition.  They were invited to make a video to tell the centre about an ethical problem they were interested in and how they think responsibility is involved.  They chose to discuss the topical issue of who is responsible for the content posted on social media.  They examined the extent to which the social media companies themselves should ultimately be responsible or the individual poster.  Their video is engaging and informative, drawing on their studies in ethics but largely referencing their own independent research.  I am delighted that they have been awarded “highly commended” and their video will be shared on the Oxford Practical Ethics Centre’s website.  This is a fantastic achievement, and more so because the entire project was run and initiated by the pupils themselves.  Many congratulations to Paige G, Mili G, Holly G-C and Molly M.
