The Dianoia Institute of Philosophy is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Andrew Moore from the University of Otago. On Monday June 3, he will present a guest seminar on "Reasons of well-being & intergenerational ethics".
03 June 2019
Level 4, 250 Victoria Parade, ACU Melbourne Campus
Andrew Moore's research and teaching is in ethics, and in related issues in practical ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, and public philosophy.
The June 3 seminar will focus on reasons of well-being generated by one's relations to worldly entities bigger than oneself, such as certain groups, traditions, practices, etc., of which one is a member or a part. Examples might include humanity, music, Australasians, philosophy, and complex life on earth. The paper considers whether such entities bigger-than-me can themselves be subjects of well-being, and whether one's relations to such entities can generate for one significant reasons of well-being. Issues of this sort have been widely discussed in theological settings, but less so in philosophical settings. All are welcome to attend the seminar.
