Description

Tim Mulgan introduces a new thought experiment, which takes the form of a challenging possible future: the world will end in two hundred years, and humanity faces unavoidable but not immediate extinction. He presents imaginary discussions, within this slowly ending world, of such topics as the meaning of life and the purpose of the universe.

Tim Mulgan was educated at the Universities of Otago and Oxford, where he wrote his DPhil thesis under the supervision of Derek Parfit, Bernard Williams, and Roger Crisp. He is currently Professor of Moral and Political Philosophy at the University of St Andrews and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Auckland. He is the author of The Demands of Consequentialism (Oxford, 2001), Future People (Oxford, 2006), Ethics for a Broken World (Acumen, 2011), and Purpose in the Universe (Oxford, 2015).
