Event details

A workshop in Association with the Southampton Ethics Centre.

The revival of philosophical interest in the emotions over the past half-century has lead to a re-affirmation of their importance in ethical life. Particularly rich has been the retrieval of guilt and shame as central features of moral self-regulation. Contemporary philosophical work on these topics continues to draw from a variety of sources, and debates remain lively, if divisive. This workshop is the first in a series that aims to explore the place of the emotions in ethics after Kant, and to orient contemporary work on these issues within a richer understanding of the post-Kantian tradition.
