Ethics and Political Philosophy Group Talk (Mark Schroeder, Southern California)

Jackman Humanities Building, Room 418 170 St. George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Mark Schroeder (Southern California) works on areas of philosophy in some way connected to metaethics. He is interested in the ways in which rationality, reasons, value, and other "evaluative’" or "normative" categories are related to the mundane, physical world in which we live, in which things are round, red, or left of one another. For example, are there really facts about what is rational or not, to go along with the facts about what is round or not?
