When Do Unhealthy States Harm the One Who is Unhealthy?

Location: Social Sciences 128

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.

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