Great outcome for the ANU at the Ethics Olympiad
Two teams from the ANU School of Philosophy competed at the International Ethics Olympiad, taking home the Gold and Bronze medals. This is an excellent result in a competition that brings together the best teams from Australasia and the USA.
The Ethics Olympiad is a debate-style competition, where teams are scored for collaborative discussion of issues in applied ethics. Teams apply their philosophical expertise to questions about complex issues like the billionaire space-race, animal testing, and gender politics. The students demonstrated a deep understanding of complex moral questions and a careful ear for the arguments presented by opposing teams.
Congratulations to our students: Angela Gao, Holly Wallman-Craddock, Tom Rasmussen, Ashy Kinsella, Emily Fleming-Berry, and Fionn Parker.
