The Ethics of Wealth: 'Extreme Morality'

Most people don't believe that if they spend $200 on shoes that could have bought life-saving medicine for a child in need, they're still responsible for a death. This talk will tell the story of a couple of young utilitarians who do believe it and live their lives accordingly. It will take place Jan. 15, 7-8:30 p.m. at Cemex Auditorium, Zambrano Hall, 641 Knight Way,
