Location: Social Sciences 128

Abstract: We blame ourselves and others on moral grounds as well as in relation to a wide range of non-moral norms and values, including those of sports, crafts, engineering, nursing, logic, and belief formation. In this talk, I expand on and deepen my earlier attempts to offer completely general accounts of responsibility and blame, and use lessons from non-moral domains to address problems for accounts of moral responsibility and moral blameworthiness.

We welcome faculty, students, and staff of the Philosophy and Moral Science Departments as well as members of the wider University community. RSVP to Lucy Schwarz at luciaschwarz@email.arizona.edu.
