The Reach of Responsibility [RoR ERC conference; HUJI & Tel Aviv]
26 March 2023
ERC Roots of Responsibility will sponsor a workshop on The Reach of Responsibility, to be held on Sunday 26–Tuesday 28 March 2023, in person at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University, Israel. This conference in collaboration with David Enoch (HUJI) and Yair Levy (Tel Aviv).
Are we responsible only for what they do voluntarily, or what is controlled by our wills? Attention to responsibility for beliefs, attitudes, emotions and even character, in recent years has encouraged philosophers to believe that the answer is no, and that responsibility should be associated with responsiveness to reasons or with agency (perhaps in a somewhat specialised sense of the term) instead. What is the state of play in this debate, and in which directions should it be moving? Presentations to be given at this conference approach all aspects of the broad theme of the reach of responsibility.
Further details about this event can be found in this post. We encourage colleagues and especially postgraduate students to attend. Please spread the word. This event is open to all, and attendance is free.
