Topic: "Virtuous People and Moral Reasons"

Location: Maloney Room, SS 224
 
Abstract:
Are the virtuous person's reasons moral reasons? Morality is understood in so many different ways that this question is hard to answer, since it is unclear what reasons of virtue are being compared with. I discuss, and meet, one objection to thinking that the virtuous person's reasons are moral ones, namely that it is not clear how reasons of virtue can have the special force that moral reasons are supposed to have.
 
We welcome faculty, students, and staff of the Philosophy and Moral Science Departments as well as members of the wider University community.
