: THE HESITANT UTILITARIAN

Talk by Anthony Quinton
In the introduction to his recent book Human Society in Ethics and Politics Bertrand Russell wrote that he was conscious of two criticisms: firstly, that the ethical theory he holds does not entitle him to make moral judgments on political questions; secondly, that he overestimates the part played by reason in human affairs. In this talk Mr. Quinton considers the justice of these criticisms of Lord Russell's work as an ethical and social theorist.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
