Fifth Annual Arizona Workshop
in Normative Ethics
The Fifth Annual Arizona Workshop in Normative Ethics will be held at the Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona, from January 9 through January 11, 2014.
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.

Philip Pettit – Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Politics and Human Values at Princeton University
T. M. Scanlon – Alford Professor of Natural Religion, Moral Philosophy, and Civil Polity at Harvard University
Christine Swanton – Professor of Philosophy at University of Auckland
