Book Symposium with R. Jay Wallace – The Moral Nexus
14 June 2019 @ 13:00 - 17:00
In The Moral Nexus (Princeton University Press, 2019) R. Jay Wallace develops and defends a new interpretation of morality, namely, as a set of requirements that connect agents normatively to other persons in a nexus of moral relations. According to this relational interpretation, moral demands are directed to other individuals, who have claims that the agent comply with these demands. Interpersonal morality, so conceived, is the domain of what we owe to each other, insofar as we are each persons with equal moral standing.
The OZSW study group Moral Psychology organizes a book symposium with the author (sponsored by the OZSW). Three commentators will start off the discussion. All are welcome. Attendance is free, but please register by sending an email to the study group coordinators
