Details

The target group for this course is doctoral students and junior faculty in philosophy departments working on: epistemology, meta-ethics, experimental philosophy, and applied ethics. Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered. Participants are expected to be familiar with moral epistemology to the level of a graduate level introductory course.

The course will explore issues related to the nature and justification of intuitions, the concept of a reflective equilibrium, the ideas of moral testimony and moral expertise, how disagreement in moral matters affects our accounts of moral knowledge and evolutionary debunking arguments of morality.

Each thematic area will be examined separately. For each area, a lecture will address the most important themes, followed by discussions in seminar format. Students will be required to prepare the corresponding collection of principal texts found in their reader. The last part of the course will include individual consultations with the instructors and presentations by the participants.
