The ninth meeting of the project research seminar this term (Spring 2020) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 17 March, 2020, in the seminar room at the Department of Philosophy, UCL (19 Gordon Square). (We revert to the usual venue and time).

For this meeting, we will focus on questions about varieties of responsibility: What kinds of responsibility are worth distinguishing? How are they related to each other, and how are they related to causation?
