This workshop is a forum for those interested in ethics, conceived broadly to include normative moral philosophy, meta-ethics, action theory, moral psychology, political philosophy, and the theory of practical reason. Our activities are divided between graduate student presentations of dissertation chapters, the hosting of outside speakers, and faculty presentations of their own work in progress. We hope, over time, to build a campus-wide community of scholars who are interested in the following pair of questions as well as their relationship to one another: What is it to act? What is it to act well?

Meetings are on Friday from 10.30am – 12.30pm. The workshop will meet five terms a term, but since locations will vary and dates will not follow a regular pattern, be sure to check the schedule for details of upcoming meetings.

For more information about the workshop, or if you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact the graduate student co-ordinator, Pascal Brixel: brixel@uchicago.edu.
