Ethics and Political Philosophy Group Talk (Andrew Sepielli, Toronto)
Friday November 16, 2018, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Ethics and Political Philosophy Research Interest Group welcomes Andrew Sepielli, associate professor in our department, based at the Mississauga campus. Professor Sepielli’s work is in ethics, metaethics, moral philosophy, philosophy of law, and pragmatism. His current project is a metaethics book tentatively entitled Significance without Substance: A Defence of Pragmatist Quietism in Meta-ethics, which explores the notion that ethics is an objective but autonomous domain of inquiry. He is also working on a series of papers in defense of consequentialism.
A title and abstract will be posted closer to the date of this event.
