Freedom Center Colloquium: Tyler DesRoches


Thu, 11/15/2018 - 12:30 to 13:45

Topic: “When do unhealthy states harm the one who is unhealthy?"

What is the relation between health and well-being? While healthy states may possess intrinsic and instrumental value for the subject in such states, the relation between health and well-being also appears to be a contingent one. If that is correct, then the following question arises: when do unhealthy states harm the one in that state? This talk introduces a new counter-factual account of the harmfulness of unhealthy states.

Location: The Kendrick Room, Social Sciences 128

We welcome faculty, students, and staff of the Philosophy and Moral Science Departments as well as members of the wider University community.

The complete list of current and past colloquia is on the Freedom Center website.
