Michael Smith (Princeton) – Two Conceptions of Ideal Agents [Utrecht]
5 June 2023, 4:00 PM–7:00 PM CEST
It is our great pleasure to announce the next talk in the Utrecht Philosophy Lecture series. Our speaker for this session is Prof. Michael Smith (Princeton University) with the talk:
TWO CONCEPTIONS OF IDEAL AGENTS
Humean and Kantian views of reasons for action differ in significant ways. I argue that the differences between them can be traced to their very different conceptions of what ideal agents and the world in which they live would have to be like. Furthermore, I argue that when we see the differences between them in this light, it becomes clear that the Kantian’s view is more plausible than the Humean’s.
