About Formal Ethics
Formal Ethics is a common denominator for the application of tools from logic, decision theory, game theory, and social choice theory to the analysis of concepts in moral and political philosophy and to the development of ethical theory. It is a rapidly growing field of research that goes back to the work of Kenneth Arrow, Amartya Sen, John Harsanyi, Georg Henrik von Wright, and others. The field has recently gained new impetus with formal work on non-classical logic, freedom and responsibility, population ethics, value theory, and the evolution of norms and conventions.
Previous editions of this conference series were held in Groningen (2010), Munich (2012), Rotterdam (2014), Bayreuth (2015), York (2017), and Gent (2019). See
