This is a high-level course primarily aimed at PhD-students who already have some background in ethics. The aim of the course is two-fold. First, the course provides insight into recent work on the main normative theories (consequentialism, Kantian ethics, and virtue ethics), different methods of moral justification, and the use of theories and methods of justification within contemporary applied ethics. Second, much attention is paid to teaching participants to connect their own research projects to these current developments within ethical theory, as well as to how to best present one’s research in writing. The overarching aim of the course is to help participants to improve their skills as researchers in philosophical ethics.
Participants pay a contribution of 450 Euros for meals and accommodation, and are expected to make their own travel arrangements. PhD students of the Netherlands School for Research in Philosophy pay a reduced fee of 400 Euros.
There is a limited number of places, so early registration is strongly recommended.
