Ethics and Political Philosophy Group Talk (Valerie Tiberius, Minnesota)

Friday November 10, 2023, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Ethics and Political Philosophy Research Group is pleased to welcome as guest speaker Valerie Tiberius, a professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota. Tiberius’s work has focused on ethics and moral psychology, with a special interest in applying Humean principles to modern philosophical questions. Much of her work is centered at the junction of practical philosophy and practical psychology, examining how both disciplines can meaningfully improve lives. Much of her work takes a non-traditional empirical approach to traditional philosophical questions. Her latest book, What Do You Want Out of Life? A Philosophical Guide to Figuring Out What Matters was published in early 2023 by Princeton University Press.
