Rethinking the boundaries of human beings and morality
Based on symbiosis and other ‘exotic’ biological examples, philosophers of biology have defined biological individuality beyond our common intuitions about individual organisms. I will explain why individual human beings should be understood as emergent multi-species individuals and how this should inform our views about morality and arguments concerning moral relativism.
Dr. Eva Kittay's lectures, on Oct. 20, 21, 25 and 27 have been cancelled.
This conference will bring together scholars at the intersection of pragmatism and philosophy of science to consider Peirce’s and Dewey’s contributions to the study of science and values. Over three days, scholars will offer individual papers and panel/roundtable discussions devoted to both the role of and relationship between science and values in Peirce and Dewey, and to the ways in which contemporary scholarship on science and values draws, or ought to draw, on the work of these classic American pragmatists.
