- I heard Oliver Conolly speak at Oliver Black's salon on 2nd December 2018. According to Oliver Black's invitation:-
- The speaker will be Oliver Conolly, and the title of his talk ‘Literature and morality: do they mix?’ Oscar Wilde thought the answer was no, and summarised his view thus: “There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.” Henry James expressed an apparently contrary view: “To deny the relevancy of subject-matter and the importance of the moral quality of a work of art strikes us as, in two words, ineffably puerile.” Oliver will attempt to adjudicate this long-standing debate.
- Oliver Conolly is a practising barrister, specialising in tax law. He has a PhD in Philosophy (Cambridge), and has written and co-written a number of articles on the value of literature, and its relation to cognitive, moral, and political values.
- The jointly-authored paper is to be published shortly.
