Celebration of Derek Parfit, June 3, 2017, Oxford, United Kingdom

On June 3, 2017, friends, family and colleagues of the noted moral philosopher Derek Parfit gathered in the Codrington Library, All Souls College, Oxford, to celebrate his life. This is a collection of videos, presented in order of appearance, of the 20 talks given that day. These talks offer insights into this great philosopher's personality, life story, and work.

Filming and post production were by Michael Parfit and David Parfit, sound recording was by David Parfit, and still photographs were provided by Theodora (Parfit) Ooms and many of the participants in the celebration. Many thanks to the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics for support of this project.
