Eighth Annual Arizona Workshop in Normative Ethics

The Eighth Annual Arizona Workshop in Normative Ethics will be held at the Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona, from January 12 through January 14, 2017.

Normative ethical theory addresses general questions about the right and the good and attempts to answer such questions as: What sorts of actions are right or wrong and why? What sort of person ought one to become and why? Normative ethical theories, including, for instance, versions of consequentialism, deontology, contractualism, natural law theory, and virtue ethics address such questions. 

This annual Arizona Workshop features new work in normative ethical theory broadly construed, to include not only issues about the right and the good, but meta-theoretical questions about the project of developing and defending normative ethical theories.

Keynote Speakers, 2016 Workshop

Talbot Brewer  Professor of Philosophy, University of Virginia

Christine Korsgaard  Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University
