Talk by Alasdair Maclntyre
Lecturer in the Philosophy of Religion
In the University of Manchester
Russia, through the Marxist revolution, has exchanged one metaphysics for another; but in this country there is a lack of any clear set of beliefs which could be called metaphysical. Mr. MacIntyre argues that this lack of beliefs is fundamental to our situation and characteristic of our mode of life: ' the curious flavour that a combination of liberal morality and metaphysical mcaninglessness give to social life is the characteristic flavour of our time.'

Talk by Edward Hyams
A seventeenth-century encomiast of the fig wrote: Among the good qualities which these fruits enjoy there are observed some ill: they cause winds which swell the stomach; they breed lice; and they make us fond in caressing women.' As a fig-grower, a fig-lover, and a fig-eater, Edward Hyams calls his friends to witness that these are libels without foundation.
