FREE Lunchtime Masterclass talks: 'Why is Suffering Valuable?'

FREE Lunchtime Masterclass talks: 'Why is Suffering Valuable?'

Date: Friday 6 March 2015
Time: 12.10 - 13.00
Venue: Room 201, John McIntyre Building, University of Glasgow
Speaker: Dr Michael Brady

Suffering is both widespread and varied: think of all of the very many kinds of pain, emotional distress, physical discomfort, and mental anguish that human beings experience. It is, moreover, widely agreed that all of these different forms of suffering are bad: we have reason to avoid, alleviate, and reduce our own suffering, and the suffering of others. However, suffering can also be valuable, and in many different ways. In this talk I’ll explain some of the ways in which suffering can be good for us, and for others.
