This podcast, produced by the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, presents a series of seminars and special lectures exploring a broad array of topics within practical ethics. The Oxford Uehiro Centre, established in 2002, functions as a part of the philosophy faculty of Oxford University and delves into philosophical ethics with academic rigor.

The content of the podcast spans a wide range of ethical issues, often intersecting with contemporary scientific, medical, and technological advancements. Discussions feature a mix of theoretical and applied ethics, addressing dilemmas in daily practice and policy implications. Topics include the ethical challenges posed by artificial intelligence and its effect on democracy, considerations around informed consent in medical contexts, and the moral complexities of genetic testing and enhancement.

Healthcare ethics are prominently featured, with episodes addressing the morality of patient consent, the ethical implications of hope in medical procedures, and the contentious issue of medically assisted dying. The podcast also delves into broader societal issues such as the ethics of global health research in impoverished regions, the morality of the gig economy, and the legal and moral dimensions of human mind reading through advanced technologies.

Several episodes tackle philosophical inquiries into the nature of morality, personality, and moral responsibility. They explore how moral theories adapt to practical demands and how institutions and individuals navigate ethical trade-offs. The relationship between morality and mental states, including the phenomena of moral injury among military and police personnel, is also a theme.

Overall, this podcast provides a platform for in-depth, scholarly discussions on practical ethics, aiming to illuminate complex moral issues that arise in modern society. Through its diverse topics, it engages listeners with the ever-evolving ethical questions at the intersection of human values, emerging technologies, and societal norms.
