God and the Good: Thinking Religion and Ethics

Our joint talk series with The University of Sheffield continues with philosopher Paul Faulkner reflecting 'On Conversion'. 

Faith is something that one can gain and lose. What happens when one is converted? If 'conversion' applies to the loss as well as the acquisition of faith, what reasons does one have to convert? This is a hard question because insofar as conversion results in one's seeing the world anew, the reasons that become visible to one after conversion cannot move one prior to one's conversion. 

The 1554 Coffee Shop will remain open throughout the afternoon. Drinks, deli savouries and homemade sweets will be available for purchase prior to the talk.
