Would you want to live forever? | George Leeson Oxploring the Big Question

As part of the latest Big Question at Oxplore ‘Would you want to live forever?’, Dr George Leeson poses another big question: what do we want out of growing old? We may be living for longer but illness and loneliness remain concerns for the elderly, is there a way to find an effective compromise?  

Oxplore is an innovative new digital outreach portal from the University of Oxford. As the ‘Home of Big Questions’ it aims to engage those from 11 to 18 years with debates and ideas that go beyond what is covered in the school classroom. Big questions tackle complex ideas across a wide range of subjects and draw on the latest research undertaken at Oxford. Oxplore aims to raise aspirations, promote broad thinking and stimulate intellectual curiosity.
