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.
