Research Seminar Spring 2020 (10): Responsibility and liability
24 March 2020, 4:00 PM–6:00 PM GMT
The tenth and final meeting of the project research seminar this term (Spring 2020) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 24 March, 2020, in the seminar room at the Department of Philosophy, UCL (19 Gordon Square).
For this meeting, we will focus on questions about responsibility and liability: What is the relationship between responsibility and liability? Is moral responsibility always or normally “strict”? Does Duff’s distinction between responsibility and liability have any bearing on traditional philosophical problems about moral responsibility?
