Value and its varieties, values, are often viewed as magnitudes. However, value magnitudes appear to be unlike familiar, physical magnitudes such as mass. The Workshop on Value Exploration aims to develop a better understanding of the specific nature of value magnitudes based on the latest findings in value theory, the metaphysics of value, the philosophy of mind, and cognitive science.

Scheduled talks include the following:

Ralf M. Bader (Fribourg), Organic wholes and organic parts.

Krister Bykvist (Stockholm), Value magnitudes and incomparability.

Olivier Massin (Neuchâtel), The conservative value boost.

L. A. Paul (Yale), Value by acquaintance.

Peter Schaber (Zürich), Consent as a normative power.

Dean W. Zimmerman (Rutgers-New Brunswick), Chisholm's theory of organic unities.

This workshop will also be streamed on Zoom. To receive the link, please write to [email protected]
