Conférence Fillosophie, GRIN et Département de philosophie de l’UQÀM : «On Benevolence»

Pour sa 29e conférence, Fillosophie, le Groupe de Recherche Interuniversitaire sur la Normativité (GRIN) et le Département de philosophie de l’UQÀM ont le plaisir de vous convier à une conférence de Nomy Arpaly (Brown University) qui présentera une conférence intitulée : On Benevolence

Elle aura lieu le 12 janvier prochain, à l’UQAM, au DS-1950, de 14h00 à 16h00, et est ouverte à toutes et à tous.


It is widely agreed that benevolence is not the whole of the moral life, but it is not as widely appreciated that benevolence is an irreducible part of that life. This paper argues that Kantian efforts to characterize benevolence, or something like it, in terms of reverence for rational agency fall short. Such reverence, while credibly an important part of the moral life, is no more the whole of it than benevolence.

Nomy Arpaly received her PhD from Stanford University in 1998. She is a professor of philosophy at Brown University since 2003. Her main research interests include ethics, moral psychology, action theory, and free will.

Arpaly’s recent seminars have focused on moral psychology.

    (pour faciliter l’ecriture, j’y fais des commentaire en englais) This topic and conference addresses an core aspect of my independent research on the #EthicsofCare. I wish I could be in Montreal for this conference. I know of no one to send in my place, either. Is there any possibility of attending this conference or Prof Arpaly’s and others’ talk via streaming? or will they possibily be available online later?
