For centuries discussions of justice and ethics were seen as linked domains of duty in European thought and culture. In the twentieth century they were seen as diverging in marked, interesting and unsettling ways. There is now widespread acceptance that justice is a matter of respect for objectively justified human rights, but that other ethical standards lack wider justification and reflect either individual choice or shared standards. In this year’s Kate Pretty Lecture Emeritus Professor of Philosophy Onora O’Neill will argue that this view offers inadequate accounts both of justice and of other ethical standards.
