6th Annual Theistic Ethics Workshop
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Goal: Contemporary philosophy of religion has been richly informed by important work in metaphysics and epistemology. At the same time, there has not been nearly as much work done at the intersection of philosophy of religion and meta-ethics or normative theory. To help inspire more good work in this area, Christian Miller (Wake Forest), Mark Murphy (Georgetown), and Chris Tucker (William & Mary) organize a series of annual workshops on theistic ethics.
Logistics: The 6th workshop will be held near William & Mary at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. We will begin with dinner and the first paper on Thursday, September 1st and conclude at the end of the day on Saturday, September 3rd. There will be four spots for submitted papers. All papers will have about 40 minutes for presentation and 40 minutes for discussion.
Themes: “Theistic ethics” is to be understood broadly to include such topics as divine command and divine will theories; God and natural law; God’s ethics; ethics and the problem of evil; moral arguments for a theistic being; infused and acquired virtues; the harms and benefits of theistic religions; what mainstream moral theories imply about divine action; specific ethical issues in Judaism, Christianity, or Islam; and many other topics as well.
Supported by generous funding from William & Mary’s Philosophy Department and Theresa Thompson ’67.
