The Appropriate Limits of Free Expression

Does extreme speech incite violence? Is tolerance just a euphemism for permissiveness or lack of moral conviction? And is the liberal demand for government neutrality between competing moral worldviews itself a moral worldview, and hence contradictory? In this lecture, Terri Murray will attempt to dismantle these concerns by describing the importance of free expression and demonstrating that the reasons for governmental censorship are unconvincing at best.

Terri Murray holds a Master of Theology Degree from Heythrop College, University of London. She is co-author of Moral Panic: Exposing the Religious Right's Agenda on Sexuality (London:Cassell, 1995) and won this year's CFI Free Expression Essay contest. She is currently pursuing a doctorate in Social and Contextual Theology at Brookes University, Oxford, and her articles have been published in Philosophy Now magazine, Tikkun magazine, the Journal of Social Philosophy, and others.
