This workshop brings together philosophers thinking about the interplay between risk and moral responsibility. The respective topics of risk and moral responsibility have distinct histories. There is, however, overlap between them. Some contemporary discussions of risk include at least minimal accounts of moral responsibility. Conversely, some contemporary accounts of moral responsibility address and attend to risks. Over the course of two days, presenters will address the connections between risk and moral responsibility from different philosophical perspectives (e.g., ethics, political philosophy, applied ethics) and different aspects of the relationship between risk and responsibility (e.g., control and the COVID-19 pandemic).
The workshop takes place on February 18th and 19th 2021 from 10am-1pm.
