Event details

Part of the Aims and Norms research project.

The second workshop will address such questions as: Is there an aim of action? For example, do all actions aims at the good, or at the satisfaction of one's desires, or at self-knowledge? Can norms of action be understood by appeal to such aims?

11:15-12:45 Nishi Shah (Amherst), 'Attitudinal Norms', respondent: Anders Nes (CSMN)

14:00-15:30 Conor McHugh (Southampton), 'Does Intention Have An Aim?' - Respondent: Yair Levy (Oxford)

15:45-17:15 Matthew Chrisman (Edinburgh), 'Oughts Without Ends?' - Respondent: Alex Gregory (Reading)
