In recent years, the topic of moral obligations to oneself has enjoyed renewed interest. Philosophers have come to question the traditional view that morality concerns only how we treat one another. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scholars interested in this promising area of research, and to provide a forum for the discussion of its emerging questions.

Time and Format:
The event will be held via Zoom on July 11th, at 9-11pm (GMT+1) / 4-6pm US East Coast Time. We will have five 20-minute sessions, with a short break after the first three. Each session will be based on a 1,500-words abstract, which will be circulated to all registered participants in advance. Each session will start with a 3-5-minute invited comment, followed by a 15-17-minute Q&A. After the sessions, there will be an opportunity for the participants to socialize.

All interested are welcome to attend and to participate in the discussion. Abstracts will be sent out for pre-reading upon registration. In order to register, please follow the link https://forms.gle/eWMPEuAJ93KR3sxU8.

Note, that the registration will be closed on July 9 at 5pm or sooner, if the amount of people registered reaches 100.
