Collective action plays a central role in politics. Understanding the conceptual underpinnings of collective agency, including related ideas such as collective responsibility and collective capability, should therefore play a central role in political philosophy. These issues are most often explored with in an area of philosophy known as ‘social ontology’, which draws on work in philosophy of mind, analytic metaphysics and ethics, and which has implications for disciplines such as psychology, law and political science.
Our aim in this conference is to bring together established and emerging researchers in political philosophy and social ontology, including some who have published prize-winning work in this area, and others whose work is at the centre of recent discussions.
