What are the main topics under philosophical debate with regards to ethics today? What is the difference, if there is one, between morals and ethics? What is the object of research and studies on the relationship between action and moral responsibility, between metaethical theories and rights, between just and justified?

The Workshop on ethics - that will be held at the University of Milan in the Crociera Alta room on the 14th June 2012 from 9 am to 6 pm– will attempt a clearer rephrasing of each of these questions by putting three important Italian researchers of ethics and moral philosophy (Mario De CaroCarla Bagnoli and Luciana Ceri) in dialogue with students and PhD holders that are starting to face these themes in their philosophical research.

The workshop on ethics, which is organised by Rivista Italiana di Filosofia Analitica Junior (University of Milan and Junior Italian Association of Analytical Philosophy) and Doiè, Research Centre for Pure and Applied Philosophy, aims at promoting philosophical research in ethics, by offering junior scholars the opportunity to encounter and confront some of the greatest Italian experts on the topic.
