Brasenose College, Oxford - Tanner Lectures
The Tanner Lectures take place annually at Brasenose College in Oxford; and at a handful of other distinguished seats of learning around the world.
The Tanner Lectures were established by the American scholar, industrialist and philanthropist Obert Clark Tanner; he described their purpose thus: "I hope these lectures will contribute to the intellectual and moral life of mankind. I see them simpy as a search for a better understanding of human behaviour and human values. This understanding may be pursued for its own intrinsic worth, but it may also eventually have practical consequences for the quality of social and personal life".
Tanner Lecturers are drawn from amongst the most distinguished of academics or leaders in the field of human values, broadly conceived.
