9 - 13 George Street

We use the upstairs function room.

To find it, go up the spiral staircase - then look for the door immediately opposite you. Go through, up another flight of stairs and you will find us. There is a bar up here and it will be open, so no need to spill your pint on the spiral stairs. If you want to eat in the function room then you have to order your food downstairs and then carry it up yourself.

Step-free access is available.
Sanal Edamaruku
What's the talk about?
Sanal Edamaruku has been a force for reason all his life. As president of the Indian Rationalist Association he’s continually challenged the gurus and godmen who have such a pervasive influence in society. But it’s an uphill struggle: a wave of increasing fundamentalism and intolerance may be responsible for his current predicament: when he returns to India it’s likely that he’ll be arrested for “outraging religious feelings” after he debunked a Catholic “miracle” statue in Mumbai.

Prof. Law,

I enjoyed a recent (March 8, 2013) Youtube upload of a lecture you give (the details of the event are not provided within the video).

Unfortunately, the only decent question you're given at the end is cut off. A student asks you about a possible Platonic form of the Evil as asymmetical to a possible Platonic form of the Good.

Could you direct me to a full version of this lecture or to a post where you have addressed this objection?
